yes RRP is set as a recommended retail price
which is also the price that is stated on all Nikon promotional materials
the shops will give you a discount from the RRP

Thanks Ortega and Kit for the update! Man, the street pricing for the new 85/1.8G is soooo tempting! ;p I've got the 50/1.8G and loving it (for the price as well).

was tempted to buy a 85mm prime too,
but after seeing this thread, I will go to buy the new G instead.

wow this kill many sellers in b&s :D
They brought it upon themselves.

BNS should be photographer helping photographer, but short sighted people would rather count that few stingy dollars of lost as more important.

Like a particular lens seller, brand new is $1800, he die die want to sell $1650, who would want to buy at $150 lesser used when brand new is with full warranty. This shows his (and people like him) short sighted and stinginess. He maintained those sales thread for more than a year, every 3 days post once - like a part time job.

Nowadays people are selling that lens for $1100 - and still find it hard to sell.

Sellers should be realistic and stop thinking people trying to low ball, sometimes its sellers ownself high ball. Second hand electronics depreciate fast.

Anyway it would be interesting to see how the 1.8G compares with the 1.4G costing 3 to 4 times its price.

That's nothing. I have seen many instances where the asking price for a no-longer in warranty item is higher than a new one. Good luck lor.
