The AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G is currently shipping in the United States. I was able to pre-order it directly from Amazon for $199.95 but the current price is $249.95 from third party merchants such as Cameta Camera. The lens is also available for pre-order from Adorama and B&H. Both are priced at $199.95.
If you are interested in seeing some sample photos of the AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G before making your decision, here are a few options:
- Xitek – Chinese language photography site. Mostly portraits.
- DPReview – Various subjects.
- Flickr - AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G group.
- Let’s Go Digital – Las Vegas.
[Update March 13, 2009]: The lens appears to be very popular, becoming the third most popular lens this morning on Amazon in the Camera & Photo -> Lens category.
