    Default New Nikon Lens - AFS 35mm 1.8 DX

    Great for those with a D40, D60 and DX DSLRs. Hopefully this is a prelude to more large aperture FX/DX primes. (24 1.4/1.8, 35 1.8/2, AFS 85 1.4 VR, 135 2.0 VR )

    Price is $199 USD apparently.. No price info on Nikon Aus site tho. I'd like to see it for no more than $350, sub-$300 ideal street price.

    Looking forward to this on my D90. Now they just need to hurry up and deliver me an AF-S 80-400mm f/4-5.6

    hopefully they'll introduce a f/1.4 version that isn't a DX soon....!

    This is soooo far from left field as far as I'm concerned!
    Can only mean they will hit us with new FX lenses AFTER introducing new DX lenses to make the most of the market.
    Only good thing for me is that this is a cheap lens.
    I'm headed full frame now - as would a LOT of other photographers.
    I don't intend to look back.
    FX it is.
    DX is now dead to me.
    Anyone want a 12-24??

    I'd still be looking @ around four figures Steffen - but I'm not totally current on their market price.
    Offer??
    It's clean - I'd have the box too I think - lens hood etc. Maybe I should make a sale thread and do it properly...

    I wanted the 50mm 1.4D but now with the price increases its up to 700-something!!! This lens looks decent and at a 'reasonably' affordable price...
