Good thread - I was gonna start one up on the UWA-FX linkage myself as I am unsure of the direct benefit. (Also BTW I did start up a separate topic on DR and IQ as I wish to know more there.)

Anyhow for this thread, re. WA and FX I don't really get it unless people are actually saying:
- I already have a drawer full of WA lenses and now they will work as intended, but if I didn't have a drawerful already then no FX advantage here.
- there are better quality lenses (14-24 and 24-70 specifically) right at this moment for FX. But again there is nothing technical preventing Nikon from coming out with a DX nano-coated 16-60 VR f2.8 is there? (insert other desired DX WA range here _____ or DX WA prime here _______).

Is the linkage of FX and WA really more about the current crop of available WA lenses?
