Nikon AF-S Nikkor 10-24mm 1:3.5-4.5G ED DX Lens Leaked
By Jason Heller, April 1, 2009 @ 01:00 AM (EST)

There is a big Nikon press conference scheduled for April 14th. We anticipate that they will be making several announcements including the a new DX lens that seems superior to the trusted 12-24 of many underwater photographers shooting with DX sensors. The images of the AF-S Nikkor 10-24mm 1:3.5-4.5G ED DX lens originally from Japanese website xitek.com and via Nikonrumors.com look legitimate.

Although a number of us Nikon shooters have moved to the full frame D3/D3x and D700, there are far more shooting on the DX sensors of the D300 and soon possibly a D400 or D500 (speculating that we may hear an announcement at the press conference). With underwater photography particularly the investment in both a new camera and a new housing makes the switch from one model to another a bigger decision and investment. From what I've heard from retailers and housing manufacturers, there are far fewer underwater photographers shooting Nikon full frame than I would have thought. Subsequently, I suspect when this new lens is officially released that it will become quite popular among underwater photographers.
