I know a few people have gotten their hands on the new 8-15, but does anybody have a sense of when it will be available more widely (e.g., from B&H)?

Looks like it was available at B&H back on 3 Aug.: http://www.fredmiran...topic/1030759/1
They probably get snapped up pretty quickly. I found mine at Photocraft by googling:

From what I was told, it'll be pretty slow for a bit as stock creeps in. That said, I haven't been trying very hard either.

Thanks for the link.
Good to see someone with the facilities and knowhow check it out.
A small glitch: line just above the limit switch photo (compare with the picture caption).

Hope to use it today, maybe this afternoon. Right now it is pouring with 20-30 knots of wind. No lack of water in salmon streams this year, but the vis is not so hot! A fisheye does help a bit.
