This is a simple list of lenses and prices that Nikon should make in my opinion. This is my 5th or 6th time writing such a list, and in this one, I'm going to be very succinct, and not list outrageous glass, such as an 80-200/1.4 or even less outrageous ones, like the 800/5.6 VR. Let me know if you agree with this list. It contains the bare minimum of high priority lenses for Nikon. These lenses should all be made suitable for the D3x's sensor. If you want to argue about whether fast glass is needed in the modern era with VR and ISO 6400 sensitivity, please start a new thread rather than doing it here. All prices in US dollars as of this moment.

Primes: all for FX with AF-S, and no VR:

35/1.4 $1200
50/1.2 $1100
85/1.2 $1500 (replaces 85/1.4 D)
105/1.4 $1400
180/2.8 $800 (replaces 180/2.8 D)

Zooms: all for FX with AF-S:

15-35/4 $800
24-120/4 VR $1200
70-200/4 VR $1000

Compact tele primes with VR:

300/4 AF-S VR (replaces 300/4 AF-S)
400/5.6 AF-S VR

Ten lenses in total. Not too hard for Nikon to do over the next few years.
