Nikon issues an apology that they cannot deliver all Z7 and 500mm f/5.6 pre-orders in September


Nikon issued the standard apology that they cannot deliver all Z7 and 500mm f/5.6 pre-orders in September. Here is the full list of impacted products (Nikon reportedly now makes 20k Z7 cameras per month):

Full text of the press release (Google translated):

Apology for announcement of product deliveries scheduled to be released in September 2018 and announcement

Thank you very much for your continued patronage of Nikon products.

For the following products we are planning to release in September, 2018 We have so many reservations, so if you can not deliver on the day of the release date to some customers who have already made a reservation there is.

In addition, customers who will be booked in the future may have time to deliver products after release.

We deeply apologize for causing serious inconveniences to our concerned parties, including customers who are looking forward to products. We will make every effort to deliver it as soon as possible to meet your expectations, so we appreciate your kind understanding. (via Nikon Japan)

Given the Nikon D850 fiasco in the US (still out of stock in the major US online stores: B&HAdoramaAmazon), I can "predict" that the new Nikon Z6 and Z7 cameras will be also out of stock for months. Even if you have not made up your mind yet, I suggest you place a pre-order now and then decide later if you want to keep it (this is what I did):
