Zeiss Distagon T 35mm F/1.4 ZF.2 Lens Available for Pre-Order

B&H Photo has posted that the Zeiss Distagon T 35mm F/1.4 ZF.2 lens is now available for pre-order for the Nikon F Mount version. Here’s the link.

As is custom at B&H, when something is posted for pre-order, it generally means that stock is on the way and almost ready to ship out to customers.  No word on the Canon version yet.

Nikon D5100 Availability Update

It seems that Nikon D5100 is quite hot item.  Amazon is pretty thin on stock right now and appears to only have availability through third-party vendors at the moment.

B&H Photo has updated its stock status to show the D5100 as “Available for Pre-Order” which generally means that B&H has stock on the way and will be shipping it out in a matter of days.  Here’s the link to the D5100 product page at B&H Photo.

Nikon D3X Pre-Orders and Availability

Just hours after the Nikon D3X was announced a number of online retailers offered buyers the opportunity to pre-order the camera.  Unlike the Canon 5D Mark II, the Nikon D3X will be available shortly after the announcement.  Mid-December is what I’m hearing for shipping dates.  So, it’s possible that you could have your D3X by Christmas.

Here are the pre-order links for the Nikon D3X:

Calumet

Amazon

Adorama

Ritz Camera

Wolf Camera

Camera World
