My D4 shipped from Calumet Cerritos, CA about 2 this morning. (Guessed arrival is Monday or Tuesday.) I am so excited!

The presentation of $6000 cash really sped the process along.

I took possession of the sweet Nikkor AF 24mm/1.4 earlier. This is a great lens. I love the isolation of those low max apertures. (I have 35,50, and 85 mm lenses --MF and AF -- at 1.4, and prefer to use them at that aperture. Else why spend the extra money?)

I thought a 24 would have a too-wide DOF at f/1.4, but I was wrong. I like the look. It's just a little soft in the corners wide open.

Anyone else using this lens? Any advice for the first few hours of D4 ownership?

Thanks for any help.
