DA 50mm F1.8 Pre-Order Link

B&H is on top of things today (thanks in part to our partnership with them)- they already have the pre-order link live for the new 50mm F1.8.

The price will be $249. A bit higher than I had personally expected, but still fine considering the fact that they actually tried to make the optics good in this lens, and that the 35mm F2.4 didn't disappoint either.

I wouldn't get too excited, just means it will work on film bodies.

It will probabaly be a bit less expensive if it is anounced before the recent price increase.

I agree with you Adam - I was expecting the same $219 list as when the 35mm was announced. Still, I expect this will be a fine piece of glass - so much so that I just preordered one via your link. Thanks for making it so convenient!

I don't know. It does say full frame digital sensors. I see B&H went and put that distinction for the FA lenses too. That is new to me. I agree with Chris. It is interesting.
