Nikon Rumors has been keying in on a new DX format lens for a few weeks now. It seems like it’s one that won’t go away. So, as they say, “where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”
Recently, I received word of an updated version of Nikon’s DX 18-105mm VR lens. I didn’t pass it along because it seemed like an odd lens to update; however, as the rumormill has continued to churn, there could be something to this. And, the 18-105mm has been a big kit lens for a couple of generations or so of DX format DSLRs. So, maybe there’s something to it, maybe not.
