The Nikon 1 AW underwater mirrorless camera was announced on September 19th, started shipping on October 14th and was in stock on October 28th. Today the AW1 is still hard to find and is currently out of stock at Amazon and Adorama while B&H has very limited availability of only few configurations.
Is the AW1 such a good seller or Nikon is just having supply issues with that model? Could this be the new strategy to limit mirrorless products in the US and Europe because of poor sales? I already mentioned that the Canon EOS M2 camera will be available only in Asia for now. Is Nikon going to do the same? I do expect some new Nikon 1 products (with 4k video?) to be announced during the CES or the CP+ shows in early 2014. There will also be some new lens announcements in early 2014.
