Update: this rumor is busted - the third lens was the manual 35mm f/1.4 AIS lens. What some readers still don't get is that this site is based on a comunity effort - many times I have questions and ask for help - I do not know everything.
I received this email today:
"Today I wanted to buy a Nikon 35 1.8 Dx in a store in Austria, they looked after it in the computer and found 3 Nikkor 35mm lenses: 35mm f2 , 35mm f1.8 dx and a 35mm f1.4.
I ddn´t know that nikon made a 1.4 version of this lens..."
Why I find this interesting? Because last year, we had the same situation few weeks before the Nikon AF-s 50mm f/1.4 was released - see this translation from German and this post: for some reason the inventories in some stores got updated with the new models shortly before the official release.
If anyone in Austria or Germany is working in a camera store - can you please check what kind of Nikon 35 mm lenses are listed in the computer? Thanks.
