50mm VR & 100-500mm VR

I say these are real! Remember when some of you guys said that 105mm VR Nikkor would never be made? Remember how many of you joked that you don't need VR on a Micro? Well could this be yet another case that people are wrong?

I sure hope I'm right as I can't wait to get both of these

100-500mm VR - maybe

But a 50mm VR is just plain stupid

Without knowing that thread

http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1030&message=23409570&changemode=1
your post makes absolutely no sense.

Knowing that thread one knows that you hope it will be real http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1030&message=23409653

And why did you open this new thread?

What exactly do you want to say?

I'm saying this is real, based on what happened with the 18-200VR and the 105VR. Both of these lenses were put up on the boards in the same way, and everyone thought they were not real.

And yes I'm hope they are both here soon!

They both where leaked from a site that have happens to have leaked correct images of lenses before. these new ones comes from no where, the 50 is fake for sure, it has a lot of elements from other lenses and the 100-500 is an illustration (with lots of typos).

So this is not the same case as with the 105vr and 18-200.

But anyway both of the 50 and 100-500 are some what realistic. So they might end up real some day.

Oh yes, now I get your point!

But I disagree:

Saying this or that is likely to happen because something similar happened in the past proves nothing, it is only a reflection resp. projection of the past - otherwise I would be a stock-exchange giga-ultra-hyper-billionaire...

Plus we saw what happened with the D40X - noone would have thought this would happen.

As to the 50 it is very clear it is a fake - too many things not exactly right resp. copied from other lens photos; just in the very first second looking at it the front element copied from the 28 mm caught my eye.

With the 100-500 it is clear it is a rendering so it might be true - but I very strongly think it to be a fake, too.

Re: 50mm VR & 100-500mm VR

I hate when you make sense I'm hope that Dis-logic takes hold and we get both ;-P

I use both the 50 and the 80-400 a lot, this is really hitting a guy below the belt. I will be happy with just a 50 with ED! as far as the 100-500 goes it's a dream come true!
