Con­stant-aper­ture stan­dard zoom with VR

There’s a lot to like in Nikon’s AF-S DX 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR stan­dard zoom, but we’d like to see Nikon go fur­ther still with a truly fast, con­stant-aper­ture stan­dard zoom that can de­liver a tight depth of field and main­tain fast shutter speeds at the long end of its zoom range. We’d like to keep the same wide-an­gle po­ten­tial, but would re­lax the tele­photo reach, to help achieve the fast aper­ture with­out the lens hav­ing to be too bulky.

As with the 24-70mm f/2.8 VR lens for FX-for­mat bod­ies, we’d want to see the f/2.8 con­stant aper­ture com­bined with Vi­bra­tion Re­duc­tion – some­thing that’s lack­ing in the now an­ti­quated AF-S DX 17-55mm f/2.8G lens, launched back in 2003.
