Update: Nikon 85mm f/1.4 & 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 lenses now shipping

A quick update on my previous post: Flickr member "Mister Le" posted some more samples from the Nikon AF-S 85mm f/1.4 lens and of course the unboxing video:

Another update from a NR reader who purchased the Nikon 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S lens from Amazon:

  • I pre-ordered the 85mm at Amazon within a few hours of the announcement, and got 2 day shipping. I want mine NOW!!

  • Jeff T.

    My dealer told me today that he’s checking in his first shipment of newly announced lenses and mine should ship either tomorrow or the next day. Dang, after watching that video I want one of those new 24mm F/1.4 in addition to the 85mm F/1.4….I ordered.

    Glad we aren’t having to wait months to get these new lenses.. Thanks Nikon and thanks Nikon Rumors…

  • takes cover out. drop. takes manual out. drop. takes cardboard out. drop. takes lens out….. drop… oh ****! XD

    • Yeah, he almost dropped it… 😀

  • Gary

    Nikon seems to be doing a great job of exceeding expectations with their shipment of these new lenses. Let’s hope they keep delivering the goods.

  • Roger

    Bjorn has had lens for weeks, zero samples posted.
    “Mister Le” has had lens for 5 minutes, six full samples posted.

      “Bjorn has had lens for weeks, zero samples posted.”

      Bjørn Rørslett posted sample photos taken with the 85mm f/1.4 G on the nikongea_.com site quite some time ago.

  • Muster Le

    I like to share.
    I also have the 28-300, I’ll post some shots tomorrow.

  • Phillip

    how many of you think your photos will rock if you shoot this new lens?

  • Picking mine up from my local dealer in a few hours.

  • Kenny Son

    Does anyone know where I can get this in Australia? A local dealer maybe? I hate getting my things off the internet. Thanks

    • DFive

      Avail this FRI in AUST or no later than TUE… so I’m told ??
      ( That info and I’m in Singapore 🙂 )

  • Jack

    The guy in the video looks like he almost slips the 85/1.4 from his hands while removing the plastic protection.

  • DFive

    I got mine here in Singapore two hours ago – only TWO were available at my Camera store…
    Ok using in the store with just 10 shots –
    : Bokeh the same, little sharper in corner, and color is a fraction warmer on skin tone’s.
    – I’m happy anyways 🙂

  • DFive

    FYI – Above is the 85mm 🙂

  • The invisible man

    It look good, but the minimum focusing is 0.85m, way to far !
    0.45m would have be great !
    I guess I’ll stick with my 105mm AF-S 2.8 (also great for portraits, and ULTRA sharp at 2.8)

  • Delacroix

    It seems poeple are more excited to get the LAST gear than getting the best of what they already own. What a pity. You can have old zeiss lens for half of the price of this new nikon lens, and the picture is everything excepted cold .

  • Look a the size of the glass. that’s amazing!

  • Jabs

    Here a few ‘snapshot’ examples from the new Nikon 85mm F1.4G.
