    It might be a bit easier on you if you choose a lens that Nikon actually makes (since only Nikon makes VR lenses).

    Here's a list of current lenses:

    Because the maximum possible aperture is f/0.5, so that lens would be slow slow slow. Nobody would want it.

    Best,

    huh? im still kinda new to this DSLR and lenses, I thought a smaller f/stop meant that it was a faster len? Cuz i hear people say you need a fast lens like a 50mm f/1.4 for certain shots. IDK im newb here so, am i right or wrong?

    I wasn't teasing bemmer, quite the contrary. I thought that I was going along with the sense of bemmer's comment.

    No, I am saying that:

    A) Nikon doesn't make one

    B) Nikon hasn't annonced that they plan to make one

    C) I am not psychic, so I can't tell you if Nikon ever WILL make one.

    D) There is no such a thing as a light 18-75 f/2.8 ANYTHING... that would be a fairly large chunk of glass, whatever price... let alone throwing another several ounces on it for the VR mechanism.

    E) If you want to buy a new fast lens, why not look for one that is in production. There are a bunch of lenses being made by Nikon... just none of them short, fast, light and VR.
