Wheres 24 f/1.8g? :(
I think 24mm 1.8G they won't announce it.

Cause the 20 & 24mm still have f2.8G version.

Just hope the new 18mm f1.8G

Right now got DX & FX bodies so they have to consider the consume needed.

But 28mm 1.8 in the DX body = 42mm and much widen than 35mm 1.8DX.

Hope it to be much useful on both bodies.

Yea I'm definitely going to get a copy.

Any idea when this will be available in singapore?
How long does it normally take between the lens being announced and it's availability in Singapore?

With new product releases a lot of attention were usually on the bodies but most of the time while I was interested I wasn't excited because digital bodies are a high priced item that depreciates fast.

I am always excited about better and better glass. The glass over body rule had not changed and I think this time Nikon have a winner here:

Nikon | News | AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G

It is also rather odd for them to release a relatively fast 28mm prime for FX at a much cheaper price than the 24mm 1.4 and the 35mm 1.4 because 28mm being a versatile focal length compromising between 24 and 35 is probably going to eat into some 24 and 35 sales.

Available light and non-flash situations; interiors and wide scenes, portraits, close in candids.

Watching out on its performance in regards to distortion.

Just struck TOTO. Waiting for this lens :) Ideal match with the 85mm f1.8g. The IQ for the 85 is superb, think this will be the same for these new lens. Nikon is getting better & better in the game :thumbsup:

Having come from the Canon camp, I hope this lens will not disappoint like its Canon's counterpart. Fingers crossed....
