Here are two quick hands-on reviews with sample photos of the Yongnuo YN 35mm f/2 lens for Nikon F mount (available on eBay and Amazon). The first one is by Jeremiah Gilbert (website | 500px):
In early September, Yongnuo released a Nikon F mount version of their full frame 35mm f/2 lens, selling for under $100. I thought I’d give it a try and received my copy from China the other day, so I headed to a nearby pumpkin patch to try it out and the photos here are the result. All photos are straight out of camera and shot with a Nikon Df.
In terms of size and weight, this lens is similar to Nikon’s 50mm f/1.8 G lens. While mostly plastic, it does feature a metal bayonet mount. I found the autofocus to be quick and accurate, though on more than one occasion I did encounter an autofocusing issue that was resolved by remounting the lens.
Few weeks ago I reported that the Nikon DL cameras are rumored to start shipping in January 2017. B&H has now also changed their shipping date to January 2017 for all three DL models:
There is a new price drop on grey market Nikon D500 DSLR cameras: for a limited time you can now get one on eBay for $1,499 (with free shipping) - a $500 or 25% off from the $1,996.95 MSRP. This is a new low price, the last price point was $1,589.
In the next few weeks Nikon will announce two new lenses:
I expect the official announcement to happen before the Photo Plus show in New York (October 20th- 22nd), but there is a small possibility for an even later announcement. I am not sure why Nikon did not introduce both lenses at Photokina (which I believe was the initial plan).
You can check how much instant cash you can get for your "soon to be old" Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II lens at KEH (they currently have a 10% cash bonus promotion), B&H, Adorama and Amazon.
