Nikon 50mm F1.8G Now Shipping

It appears that Nikon has started sending orders of AF-s 50mm F1.8G lenses out to dealers this past week, earlier than the anticipated June 19th release date. Europeans have been seeing orders filled over the last week or so, and now Canadian and American buyers who made pre-orders for the 50mm F1.8G are as well. I received shipping notice today around 12PM.

I'm looking forward to doing a head to head test of the AF-S 50mm F1.8G against my older AF 50mm F1.8D, and will start doing so once it arrives.
