New Nikon 50mm F/1.8G Lens for the D90 - Only $219!

Hello, As Uncle Joe reported in his last blog post their is a new 50mm Prime Lens for us D90 users avalible now from Amazon. Anyway I thought I'd post some info on it for you all. I think I'll be getting this lens also since I always wanted the old nifty 50 but never did pick one up! I believe this new lens has the built in focus motor so it will now focus on the Nikon D40 if you still have that camera in your arsenal. This FX lens on the D90 would be more like a 75mm lens on our DX camera.

Fast, upgraded f/1.8, compact FX-format prime lens

Newly developed optical system with Aspherical lens element

Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM)

M/A Focus Mode Switch

Optimized for edge to edge sharpness on both FX and DX-format D-SLRs

Fast f/1.8, compact FX-format prime (fixed focal length) lens

Optimized for FX-format D-SLR cameras but equally at home on any Nikon DX-format D-SLR, this updated classic with a fast maximum aperture is ideal for everyday shooting, perfect in low lighting situations and great for producing images with beautiful background blur (bokeh). The AF-S 50mm f/1.8G includes Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM) for fast and precise autofocus, M/A Focus Mode Switch for seamless changes between manual and autofocus operation and an aspherical lens element for outstanding optical performance with high contrast.

It's Official...

As of May 15th, the D90 was officially discontinued on the Nikon Japan site... However, you can still buy (that's right, BUY) the D90 directly from Nikon USA! I guess they are trying to get rid of their stock?

SO! That means that y'all that actually do own one, are now the proud owners of an antique! Give it 10-20 years, and you can sell it for what you paid for it!

In other news, you can buy a 50mm f/1.8 AF-S with auto-focus on June 2nd.

And here's another picture, for those of you who are interested...
