    24mm is a much more useful focal length than 28mm for me.

    Yup, 24mm is more useful than the 28mm.

    Yes, best if they have afs f1.8 lens for the 24mm & 35mm (to replace the f2 for FX). It will be like what they did for the 85mm, as cheaper alternatives to the f1.4 counterpart. If the quality & performance of this 28mm is something like the afs 85 f1.8, it will be quite attractive & worth buying.

    OMGosh! I would want one too!

    Although, having lived with a 24-70 for so long - I do wonder if I'd get back to the 28mm perspective...

    Also, wondering if it'll cost less than the 35/1.4.

    Hopefully at the 85mm f/1.8G price of US$499 ~S$600...

    If Nikon is really launching a 28mm f1.8, why would they also launch a 24mm f1.8? Don't make sense economically no?

    Yes it does make sense, because there are people who prefer 24mm over 28mm.

    24 or 28mm doesn't really matters to me, i just want one that is affordable, good quality wide angle lens and hopefully, it has close focusing ability too.

    Ermm... Nikkor has a 35mm f/1.4g, 35mm g/1.8g dx,; 85mm f/1.4g, 85mm f/1.8g; not to mentioned a few 50mm f/1.x g... So y not 24mm f/1.4g; 24mm f/1.8g?....

    Its to cater different market segement and different shooting needs. If they gonna penetrate the market, they manufacture affordable f/1.8g lenses. (not to mentioned, the trend is, the af-d are updated to af-s.)....

    In anyway. Rumours only right? not 100% accurate. Iirc nikonrumours mentioned, af-s 105mm f/2 vr (update of af dc 105mm f/2d?),and some 70-200 f/4? Or something? :lol:?
    Let just cross our fingers, and wait....

    ? He said it doesnt make economical sense for nikon to made 28mm (if nikonrumors is 100% accurate), and a 24mm.?

    So if theres already has a 24mm, 35mm, imho I feel it dont make economically sense for something in between, 28mm. Instead it make more sense for a 24mm f/1.8g (cheaper alternative than the 24mm f/1.4g).

    Look the range of af-s primes; 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm.... ;-)

    Anyway just my few cts worth...take my comments with a bag of sea-salt...

    Its not that difficult to figure out that a 24mm is very different from a 28mm......

    All those in favour of 24/1.8G say "aye"....

    I agree with the lot here, 24mm is a lot more useful than 28. You can still crop from 24mm whilst with 28mm you gotta have enough room to move backwards (28 to 24 is quite a few steps).

    Those who shoot certain "events" on a weekly basis will know for certain -28mm a bit cannot make it at times.
