New Nikon Lens

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by Catz, Nov 29, 2005.

  1. Does anyone have anymore info on when the newest lens is being released? Do you think it will be released when the D200 is released?

    I am so looking forward to this lens and would like to have it before Christmas.

    Just one of many waiting patiently.

    I think dealers will have it before the 15th.
    When they will sell it, I do not know.
    Since it is not a kit lens, they may sell when they get them.
    If so- my dealer will call me- cause i ordered one as well as the D200.

  3. Hi Melissa, just curious as to what the new lens is and why you feel you need/want it??? I am going to have to make a decision soon whether or not I will buy the D200 but as far as lenses go the 85mm f1.4 would complete my planned lens purchases.

    I believe it's the new 18-200 VR2......(I have one on order too).

  5. Sorry Gordon. The 18-200mm. I want to use it as an all around lens. I don't need the D200 because I already have the D2X. Congratulations on your new D200.
  6. Ken, where do you have yours on order from?

    I know you are headed to SF-CA this christmas holiday.
    Consider the 24-85mm f3.5-4.5. from B&H for $245.00
    after rebate.
    That will get you 36-127mm on the D2X. Lighter and close focus to less than two inches.
    I got one for my daughter for her D100 and Backdoctor got one for his wife.
    My daughter used hers in Sweden this summer while picking up their
    XC90 Volvo and got some stunning photos.
    On the D2X in HSC thats equal to 75-250mm viewing.

    On the D2X in HSC if you crop the file 50% maybe thats equal to a 500mm view. Somebody check me out on this.

    One thing that we do not know --- Is how well will the 18-200 VR work on the D2X.
    I will tell you when I get mine.
    11X Zoom just seems to good to be true even with VR and a tripod.
    If it is a performer on the D2X with 12 mp Nikon will never be able to
    keep up.
    I would classify the lens as a walk around until we get a good look at it.
    Yes I'm getting one. I can allwase palm it off to my son or daughter
    prior to my demise when they would get it anyways.
