Missing newer lenses for comparison

You guys need to catch up on lens reviews before you post lens recommendation articles...

Some of the lenses you recommend are so old you can't even BUY them anymore.  Many sections completely ignore newer lenses that are far superior to the old versions (Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AF-S for example), just because you haven't reviewed them.

You are doing a disservice to your readers.


Lenses for sports and wildlife photographers
> where is the Nikon 70-200 VR II f/2.8 and the Tamron 70-200 f/2.8

Lens suggestions for portrait photographers
> where is the Nikon 85mm f/1.8 AF-D and Nikon 85mm f/1.8 AF-S

Fixed Prime Lens Recommendation
> where is the Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AF-S - it should outperform the older AF-D version

The ultimate wide-angle lens for landscape photographers
> THIS is the worst.  How can you compare a 24mm f/1.4, a 20mm f/2.8 that costs 1/4 of the price, and a manual-focus 14mm!!!  Especially the 14mm, which is 40% wider of an angle than the 24mm!
> You should have compared the Nikon 24mm f/1.4 versus the newer Nikon 28mm f/1.8 and the older Nikon 28mm f/1.4 AF-D. 
> Or how about the Nikon 28mm f/2.8, 24mm f/2.8 and 20mm f/2.8 for a budget prime shootout?

Micro lens recommendation
> Where's the new version - the Sigma 105mm f/2.8 OS.  You can't even BUY the old version anymore! 
> What about the Tokina 100mm macro?  Should have been a 4-way comparison of Nikon, Sigma, Tamron, and Tokina lenses.

Missing section: Ultra wide angle
> Here's where you put the Samyang 14mm - compare it against the Nikon 14mm f/2.8 and the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8. 
> Or compare the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 against the Tokina 16-28 f/2.8 and Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6. 
> Or compare the Nikon 17-35 f/2.8 and the Nikon 16-35 f/4 against the Tokina 16-28.

Missing Section: NORMAL ZOOM
> This is the lens type that most people buy anyway, and yet, it's not here. 
> Where is the Nikon 24-70 f/2.8, the Sigma 24-70 f/2.8, the new Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 VC, the new Nikon 24-85 f/3.5-4.5 VR, or even some of the old Nikon f/2.8 zooms (since we're doing ancient lenses anyway).
