Nikon temporary suspends orders for the Nikkor AF-S 180-400mm f/4 ED TC VR lens, many other products are out of stock (and have been for a while)


Today Nikon announced that they temporarily suspended taking orders for the Nikkor AF-S 180-400mm f/4 ED TC VR lens. The lens has been out of stock in most retailers for a while:

I already mentioned online on several occasions that many Nikon products (both new and old) have been out of stock for a long time. Here are few examples after some digging in the Nikon product categories listed at B&H:

Clearly, DSLR products are slowly disappearing from the inventory and some are probably getting discontinued.

In the US currently, you cannot even buy the D850 or the D500 (the D850 is currently discounted).

On top of all that, Nikon has not announced a new product in 8 months, so I am really wondering what are they selling right now?

Here is the full text of today’s apology:
