I wonder if their problem is really about design; I am increasingly thinking that it's one of quality control before they ship. I just feel that too many reasonably good snappers have differing opinions on so many Nikkor lenses.

That 24mm TS thing gets mixed reports and so does the 2.8/24mmm-70mm G, by which some swear and which I couldn't stand. We can't really all be so far apart in expectations - it must be production flaws. And unless they master that, nothing is going to make their reputation what it was up to the 1980s.

Schneider made a 28mm PC for Leica that got a great review in the BJP of the day; I wonder how that would work on digital?

Thinking about Nikon/Canon and deep wider throats, I wonder if Nikon might feel this a good time to produce an alternative to the 135 slr bodies and try out a variation on the Merrill idea: a specially designed body, with live view, that could accept a couple of PC/Tilt lenses to new design, even work off a larger sensor. It would have to be expensive, but specialist stuff always is.

It would not compete with their normal product line any more than did the 38mm lens in the dedicated Hasselblad of yesteryear, supposely the best lens of its era in that focal length, damage Hassy. Wouldn't even need a reflex box to screw up design parameters: a tripod would be taken for granted.

Hi,

Non retrofocus wide angles are problematic with digital sensors, because the large chief ray angle. It is possible to build truly great retrofocus ultrawides as shown in this topic: http://www.luminous-landscape.com/forum/index.php?topic=75282.0 .

I don't really think that there is as much business opportunity for Nikon in designing a  very limited MF camera as there are several cameras to fit the bill already like the Hartblei H-Cam and Alpa FPS.

Best regards
Erik

True, Eric, but not using a newly designed Nikkor, which a fresh Nikon body could encourage more than (I imagine) would just the idea of providing super-lenses for other brands of body.
