A short bit of Nikon bashing now.
Is the new 18-105 VR kit lens really what the Nikon camera system needed at this juncture? How many do we have now? Just for the DX system we have all these normal zooms in the lineup: 18-55 II, 18-55 VR, 16-85 VR, 18-70, 18-105 VR, 18-135, 18-200 VR, 17-55.
That's eight lenses, at least half of which are completely redundant, and maybe two of which are actually good. Couldn’t they just use the new 16-85 VR for the D90 kit, and call it a day in the cheap crap department? That is probably a much better lens anyway and it's actually delivering more value to the line up instead of bloating it up.
And how many DX primes do we have by now? Not a one (**). Now I don't think we'll ever see one, DX being a second-class system and all that, but for Pete's sake the prime lineup needs some love right now!
(**) We've got the 10.5mm DX fisheye, but I wouldn't call that a general-purpose lens.
Nikon bashing done. Whew, that needed to get out.
