I've had this lens on backorder for weeks at J&R, and noone can tell me when I'll have it. Apparently they are backordered all over. Prices too high on ebay - I'd rather buy new.

Please help

Adorama doesn't list it as backordered on their site. Ritz has them, though for a bit more money. Delta International has gray market ones w/ 7yr Mack warranty . . .

Hey Kasey

As per the last time you asked (in another thread)...

  Anyone know a company with that lens in stock?

KEH lists it as available new:

KEH new AF Nikkor lenses

I just checked their webpage again, and they still show that they have stock.
Why would I take a perfectly good camera underwater??

I just got a 60mm Nikkor from B&H last week after facing the same availability issues.
I found that the trick is to sign up on the B&H page for the "notify me when available"
email service. The first notification I got I didn't act on for over 12 hours, and by then
they were out of stock again. The next notification I got I immediately placed an order,
and now I have it in hand.
