It's just being delayed.
Although it seems that it should have been released already 10 times,
And 10 times rumored to be delayed...
The lens that everyone wants but never appears.
(Curious...the concept sounds familiar recently)
and Nikon is not even capable of producing a 50mm 1.4 without IS that is in the same catagory as the Sigma - a shame!
(but then they apparantly want to let it cost no more than 350)

But the Bruce attached pic does look better than I would have expected  in the corners,
It's the first thing I saw (the corners) cause in the center they all will perform. The only thing
Is that there are some CA everywhere. There is some hdr processing involded.
And as both wide angles and hdr exhacerbate CA, it's expected.

No HDR involved here.  A single exposure. Normal "dodge and burn" technique plus .... a secret sauce!

I don't think I did any correction for CA though.  Maybe I should have... hmmm.

the imperfections of my 50mm f1.4 are what I like most about it!  I love the foggy f1.4 look... when I want it.  Stopped down, the lens is quite normal and sharp.

I use the AIS Nikkor 50 f/1.2 at f/1.2 for the dreamy look - it has the typical wide-open aberration of fast double Gauss lens designs. It is also a lightweight good 50 for sharp f/2.8 and up
