Schland! Again! The primes are coming!
Just received this from a reader in Europe:
A German store found the new AF-S 50mm f/1.4 G listed from Nikon for pre-orders and delivery in September. Price 650 Euro (which would mean 600-700$)!
This should be the long awaited replacement of the Nikon 50mm f/1.4D Auto Focus AF Nikkor lens.
Waiting on more information.
Anyone working in a Nikon authorized dealer in Germany - can you please confirm and get us a screenshot? Are there any other lenses available for pre-order?
I think you all know by know that every rumor we got from Germany turned out to be true (too many to mention here). Just scan the old D700 posts (prior to the official announcement) and you will find out.
I say this is a plausible rumor.
