If anyone has one available, I'm looking to purchase one of these lenses.

Might I ask why? With that wide a range and f/3.5-4.5 it really doesn't seem like much more than a walkabout snapshot lens. JMHO.

I already have the 17-55mm DX f2.8 and the 70-200 VR f2.8 lens; this is scriptly for "vacation" and walking around stuff (like our family trip to Disney in March).

Seems Best Buy got in a shipment today, although they are asking $200 over MSRP (MSRP is $699).

I ordered one anyways, we'll see if it gets shipped. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Yikes! That's highway robbery. Caught up in the D200 craze I bet. I'm still buying non DX glass hoping that someday Nikon might change and offer a FF 35mm sensor. I'm quite happy with my 28-70mm f/2.8 beast along with the 70-200 VR. for walkabout I toss the 50mm f/1.8 toy. Makes for fun stuff.

It does seem almost backwards to produce this line of lenses if they plan to go fullframe; but I'm very happy with my D2X and don't see me upgrading to a D3X anytime soon.

$899 is highway robbery, but when nobody else has them in stock they can get away with it. I ordered it anyways and it'll be here Monday, looking forward to trying it out.
