Everyone on here comparing this to a standard 50mm lens is missing the point of this lens: It's a Noct lens. It's a speciality lens for shooting at night and low light. It will have no coma and...
Right on sir.
Everyone is missing the fact that this really is a speciality lens. Also, it's your option to buy it or not. This lens is a NOCT lens. Nocturnal lenses are best at night as they have no coma.
You are also missing that it's a 58mm noct lens. Do you know what noct lens is? Do your research before just spewing nonsense.

I think everyone is missing a key element (and even DPREVIEW) doesn't list the full name for this lens: It's a NOCT lens. As in nocturnal/night time lens. Yes, it's obviously great for daytime...
Oh, I remember thy well, 2002.
I loved those little, mini flip phones. I am really tired of phone tech.. oh heck, most tech except for health related items.
The over hyped oil issue was only the first run about a year ago. Stop being a drone. The price will go down and Nikon never officially discontinues anything.

How about going to your local camera store and buying there? Of course, Amazon does own Dpreview.
I wonder if Canon did the same thing with the T4i?
Before all the Nikon haters (aka Canon shooters) start bashing Nikon for quickly implementing a D600 replacement due to the oil issue, please don't forget your own recent flop/hand...
