  • Rare Nikon lenses on eBay:

Nikon 300mm 300mm f/2.0 IF-ED lens (more info on this lens available here).

Nikon 800mm F/5.6 ED AIS lens (released 1986)

  • Another pro (Karl Grobl) switches from Canon to Nikon - see his posts here and here.
  • Hanson music video was shot on Canon 7D and Nikon lenses (source).
  • Diglloyd.com has an ongoing survey for a possible focusing issue with the new Nikon 24mm f/1.4G lens. See related discussion on dpreview here and here (samples available in second link). Amazon currently is not taking pre-orders for the 24mm 1.4, but this is probably related to the limited availability of this lens. Update: Amazon canceled existing 24mm 1.4 pre-orders "due to a lack of availability from our suppliers".
  • A German online store claims that a new Nikon AF-S 500/4.0 G ED VR II lens will be available in November. The lens on the picture appears to be the same as the current AF-S 500mm f/4G ED VR model. To find this entry go to AC-foto and search for "Nikon 500":
