Nikon D500 delayed till the end of April

Nikon Japan announced a delay for the release of the new D500 DSLR camera. The new shipping date for the following products is end of April, 2016:

Product name Release Date
D500 Late April 2016
D500 16-80 VR lens kit Late April 2016
Wireless Transmitter WT-7 Late April 2016
Multi-Power Battery Pack MB-D17 Late April 2016
Semi-Soft Case CF-DC8 Late April 2016
Strap AN-DC17 Late April 2016
USB cable for the terminal cover UF-7 Late April 2016
Stereo mini-plug cable for the terminal cover UF-8 Late April 2016

Nikon uses a lame excuse for the delay: they cannot satisfy the demand and need to produce more cameras for the official launch (quote from Google translate: “because we cannot offer the number required for the sale, we will postpone the release date“).

The camera was initially scheduled to start shipping in mid-March.

The shipping dates are already changed on many of the Nikon D500 pre-order pages: B&H | Adorama | Amazon | BestBuy | WEX (UK) | Jessops (UK) | Amazon (UK)
