Historically, the 70-200mm/f2.8 AF (or 80-200mm/f2.8 AF) is a lens Nikon updates quite often, usually every 4 to 6 years. The last version of the 70-200mm/f2.8 AF-S VR II was introduced in July 2009, a bit over 7 years ago. Therefore, in a sense an update is overdue. However, that last version is excellent; when the biggest complaint about it is focus breathing, it shows how good it is. With the recent popularity of fluorite elements and electromagnetically controlled aperture diaphragms, it is very much expected that Nikon would update the 70-200mm/f2.8 with those features. The new version continues to use 77mm front filters. The price goes up to $2799.95. The 19mm/f4 PC-E lens is the widest tilt-shift Nikkor available. It is not as wide as Canon's 17mm T/S, but for architecture photography, 19mm could be a very useful focal length. Similar to the Canon lens, the new 19mm/f4 has a bulging front element, and the tilt-shift directions can be either parallel or perpendicular, which has been available to Canon T/S lenses, but it is a first for Nikon. Unlike previous PC-E lenses, this new lens has no (electronic) aperture ring. The suggested retail price for this lens is a rather high $3399.95. Product announcement images, copyright Nikon Inc.
