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... :sweat:

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 :D

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 :sweat: Price may come down in few months time ;)

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.

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):)

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

I am considering getting it.
