The first Nikkor 35mm f/1.4G ships in Canada *updated*

Update: (11/18/2011): I just got a report that few Nikon 35mm f/1.4G lenses were shipped through NPS today in the US and France.

Downtown Camera in Toronto got their first Nikkor Nikkor 35mm f/1.4G lens in stock today. No sings of shipments in the US or Europe yet.

In the US, Amazon canceled (again!) a bunch of 35mm f/1.4 pre-orders (see NR forum discussion):

Due to a lack of availability from our suppliers, we will not be able to obtain the following item(s) from your order:
"Nikon 35mm f/1.4G AF-S FX SWM Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras"
We've cancelled the item(s) and apologize for the inconvenience. We must also apologize for the length of time it has taken us to reach this conclusion.  Until recently, we had still hoped to obtain these item(s) for you.

Other 35mm f/1.4 pre-orders got a new shipment date of December 17th. Go figure. From now on, if a product will be released more than 30 days after the announcement, I would suggest you pre-order it from Adorama or B&H.

Here are some samples on flickr taken with the new Nikon 35mm f/1.4 lens. Update: more samples on fredmiranda.com.

Some good news - the Nikon MB-D11 is currently in stock and Amazon will start shipping them in the next few days (update: B&H has it in stock):

We have good news!  We're able to get this part of your order to you faster than we originally promised:
"Nikon MB-D11 Multi-Power Battery Pack for Nikon D7000 Digital SLR Camera"
Previous estimated arrival date: December 17 2010 - December 29 2010
New estimated arrival date: November 19 2010 - November 22 2010

The rumor is that Nikon USA is sold out of the Nikon D3000 and D5000 models and all backorders have been canceled. Currently there is only a 30 day supply of SB-600's left. Nikon D90 will run out of stock in early 2011.
