I have paid for and still on order for two months a 105mm Macro, with still no progress.
Anybody else notice this, or am I sensitive while waiting for my own lens to arrive?
First, I am wondering why you have paid for a lens you do not have. I did this for years, was told NIKON would not ship the lenses, and other equipment, finally discovered the dealer was using my money to float his own debt with NIKON. NIKON would not ship the lens because the dealer did not have adequate credit with NIKON. These dealers will never admit to this, but I found this out through an insider at NIIKON. So, if you have money down, suggest to the dealer they deliver the lens or return your money with in 15 days. When I did this, I mysteriously got the 135mm f/2.0 I had paid for about three months earlier.
Second, yes, you are just like all the rest of us.....overly sensitive and paranoid about the process of getting NIKON equipment. But, this is normal for NIKONians. Ha, ha, ha.
Several factors, including the Sunami in Japan, floods in Thailand, and the increase in demand for the NIKON products over Canon the chief competitor, are no doubt responsible for the wait. Think gratitude for being able to purchase the quality of equipment we can. This stuff is absolutely outstanding..... and the 105mm Macro.... if I get mine, I will let everyone know!
