"New Nikon lens shown on D80?"


eugene, US
          

Pictues on French Web site of the new D80? appear to have a new lens with more zoom range than the current 18-70.

Any hints.

Looks like an 18-135mm similar to the 18-55mm. Just a guess though. Wish it had some form of VR and was f/3.5-4.5. It won't be, but that'd be cool...

It seems to be that no VR on the lens and the 18-55 type AF-S motor, so it will be a cheap lens. Info is from Thom Hogan.

I would really love an 18-135, best if VR, but does not look like that. This would stay on the D80 as comfortably as the 18-200 stays on the D200

Let's continue the speculation in this thread over in the Nikkors Forum.

Thanks!

This is definitely not the 18-55 lens. I enlarged the fairly poor photo in the link and also a similarly positioned one off Thom's site (of a D70s with the 18-55) and some differences are immediately clear.

You tell me what you see, but it looks like there are three digits just next to the infinity symbol on the new lens, so it may be over 100mm on the ling end. It also would seem silly to me to release a short-medium telephoto that would not start from 18mm on a DX format...

It also looks like the front element is wider in diameter than the 18-55, so this also supports my thinking that this is either longer telephoto and/or faster aperture...

The length of the lens also seems bigger comapred to the 18-55. Hard to tell as the angles are a bit different, but looking relatively at the lens size and the body... That is assuming the two bodies are similarly sized that is, at least on the width dimension...

The fact that is does not have any markings on the front also suggests that this is a new lens...

That's all I can think of...

This lens does not look at all like the cheap D50 kit lenses. It looks like it has a proper focus ring (the one closer to the body). It also looks like it goes up to 3 digit focal length number. It is most probably an IF lens with the front not rotating nor expanding / retracting during focusing. The AFS system might be the cheap type (just A/M not A-M/M) although it's hard to read the writing on the focus mode switch. Does not look like it is a VR lens.

I think this will be more a 18-70 class of lens than a 18-55.
