Good to see some of the US orders starting to ship. Who did you order from, if you don't mind me asking?

Great news. But what I don't get is why the 28mm lens is not shipping, but the even newer 40 is?

Nikon is producing items in batches. They don't have running capacity for all products at once.
So 28/2 will have to wait their turn for more productions as far as I know.

I don't even shoot Nikon Z but this lens is tempting me to pick up a Z5...just so I can shoot with it. You know, that and the 85mm 1.8 S. Can't wait for some folks on here to start posting pics.

All the 28 optical blocks sold with Zfcs in Japan?

Presumably the Zfc + 28 kit is so popular that the 28mm as a separate item is delayed. Nikon tend to be conservative in their estimates of demand lately. Covid may still be affecting production.

There is still stock in the Netherlands, received mine an hour ago. Here are the first quick test shots wide open.

I just got an email from B&H that mine is "still on backorder" with no ETA -- very irritating.

Looks promising. When I inevitably buy another Z, I'll be getting one of these for sure.

The bokeh looks mostly pleasing wide open. Would love to see 100% crops showing center sharpness at say f2.8 and 4?

@gear-nut, I am far from a professional tester - but hope the 3 pictures in the linked album help.

Looks pretty good in that one. foreground, background, transition all look decent, not too nervous etc. Sharpness looks fine. Nothing exceptional necessarily but no faults either.

Examples look pretty damn good for such a tiny thing.

Mine just shipped in Canada as well. I'll get it next week because I'm too cheap to pay for overnight shipping.

I must say the bokeh quite good for a small lens. Happy to see real users getting similar results to the rather nice Nikon samples. This seems like a delight to pair with a 24-200 travel kit.

Saw on DPR that at least Adorama began shipping in the US.

@ArendV, thank you! This is beyond helpful, it's exactly what I wished to see. Honestly, I am impressed by the center sharpness wide open, let alone f2.8 and f4, as well as it maintaining its bokeh as it stops down. Frankly I am more than impressed...

When/if you have some time, I'd like to see some that show more of an upper-torso, mid-range subject distance performance at f2, 2.8 and 4 as well.
