So, DPR, what does all this mean for all the other cameras tested so far ...!?!?

But ... will there be a 100 years Limited Edition in metal grey with the logo sticker and 1.499,95 price?

matthew saville: For $2K you could get two or maybe even three Sigma Art primes. This Nikon 28 had better be on par with the new(ish) Canon 35 L mk2, or even the Zeiss Otus 28.

Otherwise, I'd rather have the old 28 1.4D just for nostalgia, if I'm gonna drop that much coin...

I just sold a 4 years old Sigma 35/1.4 lens for 500€, payed 800€ for it and 70-200/2.8G VRII NIKKOR for 1.650€, payed 1.850€ for it 5 years ago.

So I lost 10% of it's worth every year on Sigma and 2% of it's worth every year on the NIKKOR lens. The rate of devalueing is 5 times worse/faster for Sigma than Nikon lens.

Do I need to continue? The Sigma lens is sharp, though ...

Non existant hardware, all we see are renders of an item somebody tries to get funding for ... and yeah, of course we can PREorder, why not ...

No, you don't get it - it's good for me as a photographer, I'm the one who will be using it and making my clients satisfied.

@MikeF4Black:
Yeah, thanks. It's based on actually using all of the mentioned lenses - I bought 58/1.4G and 105/1.4E lenses the day they became available and was using the old 28/1.4D NIKKOR for years before selling it in 2014 ... and I wished for a renewed design ever since. Just reading the 28/1.4E press release gives me chills ... damn I waited for this one, I really did :)

"For $2K you could get two or maybe even three Sigma Art primes."

Then go ahead, buy 2, 3 or 4 of them. But I'm buying this NIKKOR, because I understand, what this lens is about and I understand why it will be so expensive.

You know, "everybody" makes 24/1.4, 35/1.4 (or 50/1.4) and 85/1.4 lenses; Nikon, Canon, Sigma, Sony ... so boom, you're already limited right there - your FL and speed limit you to the same starting point lens-wise with all other photographers.

But only Nikon gives you 28/1.4, 58/1.4 and 105/1.4 trio of AF lenses with uniqe drawing capabilities (sharpness is not everything!) and simple fact is, you can make images with these 3 lenses that no other lenses make possible. These 3 lenses really are uniqe!

That's why it's basically insulting to bla, bla .. with all that "I can buy x Sigmas with that money ..." etc ... than go and buy them, then go and "invest" in averageness.

I rather pay even $4.000 for this 28/1.4 NIKKOR than $400 for Sigma's 24/1.4 or 35/1.4 ...

Greg7579: I have been traveling and shooting all over the world for the past 15 months with the Surface Pro 4 (the i7, 512 SSD, 16 GB Version which was very expensive at over 2100 USD). The big advantage is it is super light (2 pounds) and runs Photoshop and LightRoom super smoothly and fast. The screen is fabulous for RAW photo editing in LR, but small at 12.3 inches. The pen works amazingly well on the touch screen to move the LR sliders. It is the perfect travel machine for photographers and is surprisingly impressive in tablet mode while photo editing. Sure, I would love to have a powerful 4K 15 inch clamshell, but that is 3 times the weight and much bigger. This convertible tablet-laptop changes the game completely while aggressively traveling and doing post processing on the road.

If you'd use LR and not just PS, you'd know why I called him a liar ;)

Runs "... LightRoom super smoothly and fast"? OK, now I know you lie ...

pkcpga: Nice addition, looks like a very nice lens, I wish Sony would tackle their colors next. Throw in a few tele f2.8 lenses and Sony is getting serious. Sony please update your colors.

He's been shooting CaNikon so long he knows exactly how proper colors look like.

I hope so, because the current 24 mpix FX sensor they use is crr@p ...
