Anyone knows where are they in nikon mount?

it seems impossible to find despite the site still shows them as available.

Out of production for a few years now.  Grabbed my SL-II from Robert White (UK) a couple of years ago as they seemed to be the last retailer that had new stock.

Excellent lens on my D800.  Great up close and excellent at infinity even wide open.  Compact, light weight, and will outlast any G lens from Nikon.  Comes with the close-up filter which is also not too shabby.

I use my as part of a lightweight kit for my D800 and I use it on my m43 gear.  Only downside is the speed and getting infinity focus just right for 36MP is tricky as just a slight tweak of the focus ring significantly changes the focus.

I ditched the included hood and instead use a Nikon snap-in metal hood that works much better and reverses for storage.

I have yet to try it out on my Sony A7R, but I'm sure I will soon.

Best bet is on the used market - just be patient.
