What you say above about priorities rings very true. Plus Thom really goes on about a lack of wide-angle DX primes, and I know many people want them, but wide-angles for FX I would have to agree has to have been the bigger priority for Nikon. When I think DX, I think telephoto and super-telephoto. But that is just me, my DX cameras are all about reach and only have telephotos mounted. For everything else for me, there is FX (including some telephoto too).
I think a better indicator of Nikon DX seriousness is a 17-55 update. And of course the DX D300S replacement many of us have been patiently waiting for.
