    Bing- I'm assuming it's still going to be manufactured in China just like the f1.8D version. The sample images looks pretty good IMO.

    i'm assuming that too, but i'm also assuming some of the parts will still be made in japan.

    anyhow, this is good news (if priced right).

    …and nice job glenn, none of the regular rumor sites i frequent have a scoop on this


    i smell a 50 1.2G N + 85 1.8G coming !

    Thanks Bing. A f1.2 would be nice indeed! I am speculating that the Nikon 85mm f1.8D will soon have a replacement. Nikon 85mm f1.8G AFS!

    Current US price for the Nikon FX 50mm f1.8D is around $135. USD. The Nikon FX 50mm f1.4G is around $550. USD. The Nikon DX 35mm f1.8G AFS lens is around $280. USD.

    My conservative estimate would be somewhere between $200 to $250 USD. It's still a budget option for those camera owners who has the D40, 60, 3000 and 5000 series cameras.
