Nikon announces world's first f/2 aperture SLR lens to
feature Vibration Reduction
AF-S VR Nikkor 200mm f/2G IF-ED

and it's not a DX lens !!

So, I guess Nikon is still consider going full frame after all.

I think no need DX lenses for tele lenses......
DX format and other format has problem with MF for wide angle. DX lenses are aimed to solve wide angle problem for non full frame DSLR

It had better be really great, in order to match up to the Canon 200/1.8L which was around US$3450 (~= S$5900).

Nikon can build this lens smaller and lighter (as well as cheaper) if it is in DX format due to reduced image size.
See Olympus E-1 (4/3rd) lens system for comparative example.
However, Nikon chose not to do so but rather going full fledged 35x24 image circle.

Hence, my speculation about next generation Nikon DSLR.

Plus that the TC-17E II is also 34x24 image circle instead of DX format.
