tell mw here if true.

here 14-30 is 1200 euros and 14-24 2700 .....

I really wanted to get the 14-24, but currently the 14-30 is down to 949 Euro when ordered from Germany (current price at pretty much every reputable dealer, thanks to the Nikon instant rebate promotion and temporarily reduced VAT).

So I could not justify spending almost 3 times the price of the 14-30 for just 1 stop better light gathering.

Anyone living within the EU should really consider buying the 14-30 now - I doubt that we will ever get it cheaper than that.

Just did the conversion. Assuming that 949€ is inclusive of VAT, that is about $100 less than we pay here in the US right now after state sales taxes (average 10%). Current sale is $1,099 plus tax; the 949€ is USD $1,135.

You got a really nice lens at a very good price.
