Someone should take a screenshot and post it here. It may be an error and come down in the next few hours.

I think it's a case of premature notification.

Most likely the web page was inadvertently displayed before the press release.

Nice! I saved it as a PDF. Finally we're getting our small AFS prime updates! Yay!

Come to think about it, I'm convinced these aren't accidents...Nikon secretly releases these so-called leaks, keeps quite and then makes an official announcement later. Nikon resorts to word of mouth type chatter to build up buzz!

But where the heck is our 80-400 VR and 300 f/4 updates? Grrrr.....

I too think this hasn't been leaked by accident. Nikon will gage the response and decide on the price accordingly.

"This lens is crap and I'm not paying more than 120 for it!" You hear me Nikon!?

Now, Nikon, show us that FX 35mm f2.0G... :)

Would love to see a pricetag around €150.- This combined with a 35mm af-s 1.8 and maybe later a 85mm af-s 1.8 would make a great prime starter set!
