Nikon announced a new 35mm f1.8 DX lens today. (corrected. Thanks Jonathan)
I am sure this will be a really sharp lens and with a $199.95 price tag, it will sell well. I won’t be picking one up since I already use a 35mm f2.0 Nikkor lens on a FX body.
What this does signal to me is the continued commitment Nikon has to the DX format and I now believe that the next camera to be released will be the D400 and it will be a DX sensor camera, a replacement for the D300 and the older D200, not a baby brother to the D700.
