Nikon 28mm f/1.8g is now available
May 23, 2012

I got an email from my regular internet dealer asking me to call (a brick-and-mortar shop - I put in an order over the phone with a shopsafe credit card number) as well as a call from a local dealer.

Yep, mine got shipped today too. V excited about this one on the D800 because it's the first wide/semi-wide since it's availability....they've designed this puppy for the D800 and most likely D600 of course too. Can't wait.

Have it pre-ordered. I hope you're right although the MTF graph on the nikon site is just ok and not great at f/1.8.
I have the D800E coming so ofcourse it's f/4-8 that really counts.

local store which had lens in stock - San Jose camera in case in bay area
In reply to russbarnes, May 23, 2012

Mine also shipped today from the non-local store that I have a good relationship with - since the 28 1.8g goes well with 85 1.8g I also asked them to ship that lens as well.

If anyone interested in getting the 28 1.8g and are in San Jose - the store I had got a call from was San Jose camera - they had the lens in stock.
