When is the new 80mm Macro Lens due for shipping, no news recently on this... Thank you.
Seems to be a November release for sometime now, I have one on order locally and I've been told should be in stores this month. Then again things like this can change from the mfg, I'm sure I'll have it in my hands in a couple of weeks, staying optimistic.
What a long wait. Feels like 2 years.
I’ll be upset if I’m not in the first group to get it at B&H. I preordered the first day it was announced.
I was told that it should be shipping 11/30. I'm 5th in line at my dealer so I hope they get at least 6.
B&H shows Dec 1st as the availability.
With all the excitement and pre-orders of the 80mm...the 60mm 2.4 should be a bargain on the used market.
I thought there was an announcement somewhere that release had been delayed until early 2018 - did I imagine this?
I hope to heck you’re imagining it. Quit trying to give me nightmares.
Amazon still shows 11/30 as the release date which usually means you will receive it on that day - fingers crossed
They are releasing something else in early 2018 but I can’t recall what it is. X80?
Followed by a month of fabulous images being posted to the forum! Let the creative closeups and portraits begin. Yes, I cannot wait to strap this lens onto a body and go have some fun.
That will make a great birthday present for me, since I was born Dec. 2, 2000.
Just received an update. Mine arrives at the dealer today. Should be on my camera next week!!
Right?!? I'm psyched. Thinking about what to try first...
If you're anything like me it will be most items in my den as soon as I get it home!
Exactly. It's being sent to my wife's workplace office for safety reasons. Might have to make a little detour that day and pick it up.
I’ll probably try it out on a single autum leaf, then try a parrot portrait. You up for seeing My African Gray again? Although mine is coming from B&H...not sure when it will ship.
