My card was just charged for my pre-order of the lens. So, hopefully, I’ll have mine in hand in a couple days to pass along results and impressions.

The new Nikon D5500 is in stock and shipping. Recall that the D5500 was announced earlier this year at CES 2015. It features a 24.2MP sensor, EXPEED 4 processor and no optical low-pass filter. It has other solid specs like 1080/60p video capture, a 39-point AF sensor and captures still frames at up to 5fps in continuous shooting mode.
The D5500 is available as just the body only or in kit form with the 18-55mm or 18-140mm lenses. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
