We approve. We're just a touch worried, though. The press materials all yawp about how this lens is supposed to "commemorate" 75 years of Nikkor optics and 45 million lenses produced. (Leica has made us permanently antsy about the word "commemorative.") So is this the beginning of a sensible, progressive, orderly updating of all of Nikon's primes for digital FX, or a one-off special-occasion bone tossed off to us nattery little complainers who can't get with Zoom Nation? It's got to be the former, right? Nikon, Nikon, say it's so.
The lens has eight elements in seven groups, silent-wave focusing, focuses to .45m, weighs 290g, takes 58mm filters, and will ship with a lens hood.
Cool. Now keep going, Nikon.
