    n Thom Hogan's website he states:

    > Rumors continue that Nikon has a spring announcement planned, most
    > likely for new lenses. Nikon's next known scheduled news conference is
    > the May 10th year-end financials release.

    Now let's get the rumor machine running...

    I bet there will be a long list of updated primes, mostly converted from body driven to in-lens AF-S types and conforming to the new EU RoHS standard.


    edit: adding more stuff

    what this means is..if you are going to buy a 50mm 1.8 hold on, don't buy it yet cause im pretty sure that's gonna be one of the lenses they might change

    I just bought a 50mm 1.8
    and I'd prefer a lot more something wider and 1.8, 50mm is too much

    I HIGHLY doubt the D200 will lower in price yet again..it has already gone down quite a lot recently.

    this announcement will be of lenses

    we don't need a 24-70mm f/2.8 with the 17-55mm f/2.8 DX unless that 24mm lens is fool frame and there is a fool frame camera coming :eek4:
