Summary: Although Leika,Olympus and Nikon have made some great 28mm and 50mm lenses with small front elements, Telephoto lenses need to gather as much light as possible to compensate for the loss of 11 or more elements inside them. Most of the Lenses in the kits with single or two Telephoto lenses are lenses that have very small diameter elements. The giveaway is in the lens filter mount specification.
Excerpt: Like the others who have rated/reviewed this camera before it has actually shipped, meaning that the review is based on specs and sample images posted by Nikon or some other company, I have to say that my "review" is based on the fact that I am expecting this camera to retail for $1,000 at launch (probably $995 or $899 on the street). With that in mind, if it comes on the market for a couple hundred dollars less than that, I would give it an extra star.
