sounds like the bad news are in Europe too then This is then in my opinion even more funny when it comes to the 50/1.8, since this is really a true consumer lens - anyway that's how Nikon range it although it should be a heck of a fine lens.
Let us know how you like your new lens in the Nikkor section - if you want to.
