    How long has this been going on for? :ugh2:

    Has Nikon made any statements regarding the ridiculous backlog?

    I really want one too. :wtc:

    Slightly: I think you heard wrong. If you read reviews by either reviewers or even users, you'll see it's a great lens.

    Unless you read on photo.net where everything else the Leica or f2.8 is crap.

    I did hear that it was a nice lense, just slow and all plastic (again word of mouth)

    you can get it relatively easily here in Montreal... and 850$ is cheap.. and 5year warranty!

    as for the quality, aside from the zoom extending by itself, I love it

    that thing is really small for 200mm. Is the zoom static? Or does it extend out?

    i'm a canon guy, just wondering :o

    Some places like amazon have it in stock but i think most people are wondering when places like B&H and Ritz will have it in stock w/o markup.

    Amazon just points to other vendors that have it in stock, and the link above was asking $999 for it. That's a ripoff, imo. :dunno:
