    I think AF-S 28-300 is slightly overpriced. bigeyes:
    D700 * 70-200 F/2.8 VRII * 24-120 F/4 * 50 F/1.4G * SB900

    geez... the 28-300 street price will probably be in the $1.3-$1.4 region... still pretty pricey. price we have to pay for having AFS and VR...

    looks like the older 28-200/300 will be quite hot after this for people who need a AIO lens for FX bodies.

    The prices above are RRP. Street prices will be cheaper.

    Just a rough estimate, can I estimate the street prices to be:
    AF-S 85 F1.4G - S$2000 - $2100 (RRP S$2459)
    AF-S DX 55-300 -S$470 - $500 (RRP S$599)
    AF-S 28-300 - S$1250 - $1320 (RRP S$1599)

    Better if its cheaper

    Anyway, the 85 1.fG looks poisonous...

    the tamron 28-300vc is about $1k. for about $450 more for the nikon version, you get af-s and a slightly bigger aperture at the long end. worth it or not you decide.

    I guess the street price should be higher for new 85 f/1.4G, my guess is $2.2K-$2.25K Price may come down in few months time
    D700 * 70-200 F/2.8 VRII * 24-120 F/4 * 50 F/1.4G * SB900

    the 24-120mm f4 is really a good choice of upgrade compared to the older f3.5-5.6

    The estimated street price looks reasonable.
    Just curious to find out how much CP will open their price.
    NIKON D90 (2008-2010), D700 (2010-2012), D800 (2012-2014), DF (Dec 2013-Sep 2017)

    intend to get 28-300mm too. just curious, is Nikon 28-300mm in the same league with canon 28-300mm. (Canon's lens look really awesome, seems as tough as tua leng gong, of course the price also is also scary)

    just bought the 28-300 for $1350. initial impression its sharper than the tamron lens. pretty good contrast.

    It seems that AF-S DX 55-300 is not getting any attention in this thread. Any reasons why?

    I am considering getting it.
