In this post about the D800 I noted that my new lens, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28mm ƒ/1.8G, was "explicitly not on Nikon's list of D800-safe lenses," and I gave the whole list in a footnote. Bruno Masset writes to tell me that the reason it wasn't on the list was that it wasn't out when the first version of the list was created. He says, "the latest revision of the 'D800 Technical Guide' lists 23 recommended lenses, that is, seven more than in the first edition, and includes the 28mm ƒ/1.8G."
Just thought we should set the record straight.
(Thanks to Bruno)
UPDATE: It appears I have to eat crow on this one. I took Bruno's word for this, and didn't check it myself, but I'll be darned if I could find the "latest revision" of the list once I went looking for it. And although I've tried several ways to contact him, I'm getting radio silence from Bruno so far.
A good example of the old journalist's adage: "If your mother says she loves you, check it."
If this mystery gets solved, I'll post another update.
