    It has been delivered, and who knows how the stock will last ?
    It does not seem to be so successful :(

    Got mine today, unfortunatly it shipped to my parents house…so i wont be able to play with it tomorrow.

    Got mine via adorama.

  • DNHJR

    Thanks for the update. I just ordered it and canceled my order from Amazon. Don’t know whats up with Amazon, I’ve hear some have got theres shipped who ordered on the same day I did, but Amazon still says they have no date when I long on to check the order. Oh well, B&H is the bomb.

  • Ricardo

    A few people discussing this lens on DPRev don’t seem very impressed with the performance. Mind you could just be QC probs with early ones or that they are consumer lenses from Thailand. I like my Nikkors with ‘Made In Japan’ embossed on them.

      The 35s are made in China.

        Really ? What does it say on the lens ?

        • Tom

          Made in China ! Really, it does…

    • Greg Tommers

      Huh? You must be reading DPRev and not dpreview. I’ve only seen huge praise by people who actually own it (well except one guy who clearly had no idea what he was doing)

    • Anonymous

      Ricardo can you please provide a link to the negative comments on dpreview. i have seen only positive ones on both dpreview and flickr forums.

  • shant

    yea, Amazon was a bit slow; mine just shipped today (12 mar); i preordered feb 9.

  • Steli

    This new lens from Nikon – 35/1.8 – is aimed for the entry level, and it has obvious CA. I have tested it today and will not be keeping.

    • Thoppa

      Yep, I saw more than just purple fringing. Clear magenta to green shift from in front to behind the plane of focus on high contrast subjects with close focus.

      It’s a budget lens. Some folks are gonna be disappointed. However, I still think it is fine for general use.

  • Cris

    This alert is wrong. They are accepting orders. It states on their site:

    “This item is currently not in stock. We are accepting orders and it will be shipped when in stock.”

    You should change the alert to indicate they are accepting orders even though they’re not in stock… Something B&H usually doesn’t do.

    • Ruby

      It DID say it was in stock. I got the email alert from B&H stating it was in stock and it DID show as in stock at 5:00 pm today. Email:

    It DID show as in stock. I got the auto alert email from B&H at 5:00 PM today and when I went to their site immediately after it WAS in stock. Either they jumped the gun and had premature notification or it was in stock and then they sold out.

  • Anonymous

    now, looks like pixelpeelers and gearheads rushed out to buy the 35mm 1.4 AFS just to test it by shooting wide open

    *sigh*

    look at 50mm 1.8D AF, the new 35mm performs the same, optically wise.

    • Anonymous

      *sigh* from me too. You’ve got to wonder about some people’s understanding of photography and equipment. Someone above says “obvious CA”, well, dur, it’s 200 bucks.

      • Anonymous

        *sigh*

        because… gearheads LOVE to have every single lens, cameras, flashes, accessories, and whatever else nikon come out with. they get frustrated over a lens’ performance coming from a lens that they will NEVER use.

  • Lance

    Got mine yesterday from Henry’s in Oshawa, Ontario Canada. YEEHAW!

  • Tom

    Stock cleared customs and appeared in the shops at lunchtime today in Hong Kong.

    Most places are asking about HK$1650 which is US$210.

    My initial impression is that it is a good lens – very similar performance to the 50mm f1.8, but at almost twice the price. Kinda like the AF-S vs the AF-D 50mm f1.4s !

    • http://nakedlens.org NakedLens

      I did a few test shots last night, and that’s the result I came up with, performance is pretty much identical to the 50mm f/1.8D I have, but the almost 50% increase in angle of view makes a big difference between the two lenses.

  • Nikkoryan

    Whatever you do, don’t be a fool and place an order with Amazon right now. Amazon is selling through Beach Camera at this moment for $244.95. But if you go direct to Beach Camera’s web site, they are selling it for $199.95 (new, USA warranty, nothing fishy, I checked). Bad!

  • Nikkoryan
  • ScullyD

    It was back in stock late last night at Amazon for 20 minutes also, cause i was able to order one that they say will ship out on Monday. Could be due to some cancellations.

  • Ivan Feign

    So, according to the shopkeeper – the guy I always buy my stuff from – I’m the first person in Hong Kong to get this lens, he sent a guy all the way out to the Nikon warehouse here to pick up the lens for me (it wont be in stores for a couple days), I waited impatiently for an hour in the store to get it. Worth every dollar. I absolutely love this lens, it’s great for the event photography I do, because the 50mm f/1.8 is really awkward to use on a D80 (~75mm focal length).

    • Ivan Feign

      Well, from reading the above posts it seems I wasn’t the first. But that’s beyond the point anyway, I was just repeating what I was told. I’m just happy I have one of these, it’s great.

      • Tom

        Yeah, you can’t believe the rubbish they come out with here ! I got mine at Centrepoint in TST. Initially, he wanted $1750 but I saw it in Tin Cheung and asked there and they said $1680, so I asked the guy I know in Centrepoint and he dropped the price.

        The price check websites here say it should be 1750 – weird. I expect it’ll drop with the next shipment to 1600.

  • DNHJR

    Should have mine on Monday.

  • Mike

    Don’t know when I’ll get mine, its on “backorder” and I ordered it from Adorama thursday night.

  • supergrine

    I picked up the 35mm 1.8G last week from a local, Long Island camera store. They had just one for the usual 199.95. Pretty good deal and a great lens for my D300
