    I wasn't sure where to post this as it didn't seem appropriate for the "lens lust" forum. Does anyone know when the 50 1.4 is supposed to become available at B&H again? How long has it been out of stock? :Curved: Thanks for any input.
     
  2. Rumour has it that it is OOS because Nikon is ramping up a newly designed 50 1.4 with AF-S to compete with the new Sigma lens.

    Oh crap. So I guess that means they'll want more $$ for it. Something I don't have!

    Or another way to look on it is; a great time to pick up a used one as people upgrade to the latest and greatest. Either way it is a great lens.

    good luck

    I hope this AF-S 50 comes true! Where did you hear this rumor at?

    Well, yes, if I could find a used one.
