Confirmed: Nikon lens only rebates will not be extended

I received a confirmation that the current Nikon lens only rebates will not be extended after they expire tonight. The most popular lenses are out of stock, but Amazon still lets you place an order and they will ship it once it becomes available:

Check also the availability at B&H and Adorama.

    $396 for the 85mm f/1.8??? It’s £455 in the UK – that equals $757 USD!!

    • AM I Am

      Well, somebody needs to support the expensive life of the royalty.

      • Eric Calabros

        also free health care.. and oh yea, some US made luxury F35 fighter jets

        • AM I Am

          There isn’t such thing called free health care. Eventually, somebody ends up paying for it.

          • Kynikos

            Not true. According to Obama “the government” will pay for it.

            Or rather, the middle class (who are certainly nobodies…)

            There are mailbox services where you can get gear shipped to them inside the US, then they bundle it up and send it on to other countries.

              wrong on so many levels

          • Prince Andrew

            You’re absolutely right. In the UK, health care is paid for by the taxes on Nikon products.

      • gast

        There is a leisure class at either end of the financial spectrum.

        • AM I Am

          That is so true. Funny they both could be classified as freeloaders.

          A climbing bum reference in a NikonRumors thread – I salute you sir or madam!

      Hi Alex,
      It’s not that expensive in the UK, WEX and Jessops both have it up at £375. I did ask Nikon about the price differences a few years ago, the reply I got was that people will pay more for items in certain countries so Nikon price accordingly.
      We’re not the cheapest here in the UK, but we’re not the most expensive either.

    who cares about this rebate? we want gold lenses to be rebated

    • LarryC

      You mean other than the 28, 40, 50, 85 and 105? Or does “prime” mean something different to you?

      • Kynikos

        “Prime” to me occasionally means longer than 105mm.

        • mikeswitz

          Wrong on so many levels

      • Ren Wellcock

        Now I’m confused. Is my 300mm prime lens not a prime lens?

      • AM I Am

        What does “prime” have to do with “gold”?
        (S)He’s talking about gold lenses which I think (s)he means lenses with gold ring. Just in the picture above I see 5 lenses with gold ring, two are primes, three are zooms. So, I think both of you don’t know what you are talking about.

  • BernhardAS

    Well unfortunately I have blown all of my 2014 lens budget already in January and February. I can confirm that it will not be extended.

  • Carl

    Also, the D610 still has the $100 instant rebate on B&H with no set expiration date (it used to say it would expire on 3/29).

  • rt-photography

    I wanted to buy the 85 1.8g and upgrade it from the AFD I have, but damn that AF is so slow. horribly slow. the AFD is twice as quick.

    • joking

      but the bokeh is ugly on the d version

      • rt-photography

        youre right. its the most horrible lens ever created 😉

        let me see..getting the shot with fast AF or losing a fantastic shot..ill take ugly bokeh and nailing the shot. how many people will look at the photo and say “thats some ugly bokeh”

        • Aldo

          I got the G version… focusing speed seems adequate imo. The thing I love about this lens the most… it is super sharp at 1.8… where others go soft, this one stays crisp sharp. It has nasty CA though… I correct the pix that get blown up.

          • rt-photography

            yes, VERY sharp. beautiful colors. lovely bokeh. my friend has this lens. I have the AFD. I want to upgrade but crap that AF is just too slow. lets not talk about the 50 1.4g
