My local Nikon Pro dealer in the UK says that they always struggle to get stock of the 16-35 VR, so not just a USA issue, it seems to be ongoing too. It's the only one of the 4.0 trilogy zooms made in Japan. I wonder if that's a factor?
I'm lucky to own a copy and concur it's a fantastic lens. I know the 14-24mm rightly has a fantastic following but for me the 16-35 is ultra sharp and the use of filters plus VR makes it oh so versatile and practical

The 16-35mm is a gold ringed pro lens and NPS recognised
