I’ve had one of these on back order since May and today I got an order update:
We now have delivery date(s) for the order you placed on May 21 2009 (Order# XXXXXXXXXXX):
“Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras”
Estimated arrival date: June 22 2009 – June 23 2009
I ordered the lens with Amazon Prime 2 day shipping. Based on the estimated arrival date I’d guess Amazon is expecting a shipment of lenses at their warehouse in the next day or two. Reviews are good and for $199 it seems hard to go wrong.
UPDATE: Amazon emailed me on Friday, June 19th saying it had shipped.
