Nikon AF-S 50 mm lens

I got more details on the previously reported AF-S 50 mm rumor (thanks E.M.)
This is the post from a German forum. Is it legit? Hard to tell. Sorry about the rough translation, but you will get the idea:

I was today in my dealer (don’t laugh: Saturn) and silly asked for the “Nikon 50 1.4” (I meant the AF 50/1.4D …)

She came after 10 minutes, and says: “Not available …”
Me: “what is because the costs?”
She: “EP around 649 euros, but not before September …”
I: “What … there’s the online for 270 Euro plus shipping …”
She: “Yes, yes, the old …”
Me: “Yes, of course, what do you mean?”
She: “The new element with AF-S …. is already listed, but not yet available …”

Here is the original German text:

War heute bei meinem Händler (Nicht lachen: Saturn) und habe ganz auf doof nach dem “Nikon 50 1.4” gefragt. (Meinte das AF 50/1.4D…)

Da kommt die nach 10 Minuten zurück, und sagt: “Nicht lieferbar…”
Ich: “was soll das denn Kosten???”
Sie:” UVP so um 649 EURO, kommt aber nicht vor September…”
Ich:” WAAS… Online gibt’s das für 270 EURO plus Versand…”

Sie:” Ja ja, das alte…”
Ich:”ja, natürlich, was meinen sie denn?”
Sie:”Das Neue mit AF-S…. ist schon gelistet, aber noch nicht lieferbar…”

Can anyone that works for Saturn in Germany/Austria confirm that story?
