    Yeaaaaaaa this isn't something I'm crazy about. You can get a sigma or nikon 50 1.4g and a nikon 85 1.4d or g from KEH for the same price combined. 1.2 would have been more of item to drool over.

    I love my 1.2, even if I have to turn the focus thingy myself. But yes, it is time for a 1.2G.

    Sorry I might have missed something but why is this such big news ?
    What is wrong with the 50mm 1.4G ?
    Why do we need an extra 8mm ?
    Is there something unique that we need this lens over the 50mm 1.4G ?

    I can't afford it. Besides, I'm still in love with my $90.00 refurbished AF 50mm f1.8D!!!

    Aside from the Nano coating - I don't see a value in it. This is just me. I'd rather get the 85 1.4G for just a hair less

    Yep, if it had been 1.2, I would have been in it too.

    Going with the 1.2 theme, I would love to see a 50mm 1.2 AF and not the MF version they currently have.
    Maybe there is some history behind it that I am not aware of or some photographic magic behind the number 58mm but for me 50mm seem like a much more common and comfortable fucal length to work with.

    eek, that's a lot of money. I agree with the above... I think a 50mm 1.2 would have got more people biting, just for that 1.2
