The new Noct 58mm f/0.95 - Bet and Win!!!
« on: March 25, 2019, 21:25:02 »
How much this lens will cost? Considering the USA Nikon website, in US dollars.
The best guess will be entitled to a window view ticket to the next flight to Mars.
Due to this promotion budget restrictions, it is a one way ticket.
If the winner intends to return to planet Earth he/she will have to purchase the return ticket.

I think it will cost US$ 4500

My guess is USD 6200.

Had I been twenty-some years younger, going to Mars would be a very tempting proposition.

I will contribute to buy the winner a lens to take on their Mars trip.

It might make the price/value of the classical Noct (58mm f/1.2) even more expensive... 8)

No bashing intended, but too heavy, too big, too intrusive for a standard lens and for mirrorless concept.

The price will be set according the marketing policy.

I would say ...between 4000 and 7000 USD. ;D

Because we will be looking at Nikon USA, I'll guess $4,999.99.  Not including local tax, if any.

yes Keith, I guess this is what people will actually have to pay for the lens, just a Dollar short of 5k. Nikon policy seems to be to make the list price higher than they actually expect to receive. My 5729€ is incl value added tax as the 1.4/105E is 2429€ on the list and just short of 2000€ in the street market

OK. Now Nikon knows how to price the hefty MF against Zeiss Otus ...

I think Nikon is having trouble to put this lens in the market.
I read in several places it would be released in spring 2019, which is in the past now.
Their roadmap says 2019 only, but "coming soon" is there since the beggining of times.
