Typical Wait for Nikkor 18-200VR?

Discussion in 'Digital SLR' started by Thomas T. Veldhouse, Mar 20, 2006.

  1. Can anybody indicate what the current wait for Nikkor 18-200 AFS VR lens is right now? I note that just about all vendors have this lens back ordered.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Thomas,

    Can't help you with the length of the wait but I can tell you that I was
    talking to a D200 owner this weekend who is also waiting for the lens here
    in DC. He seems a bit disturbed of the length of time he's been waiting.

    The quote from my dealer: "The 18-200 lens is in a seriously back ordered
    condition."

    I waited about three weeks for mine in December.

    Speaking of this lens, Thom Hogan has finally posted his review of it
    here:

    If it keeps getting reviews like this, the waiting list is only going
    to get longer.
