My opinion is that I'm annoyed the Nikkor 24-85mm AF-S isn't available in North America yet. Why it is out in Asia and not here in the USA is beyond me. I'm sure they are just holding off until the D100 launch, but why bother? The lens will be a hot seller D100 or not; just make sure the lens comes out first.
Unless... Nikon is planning on selling them together as a kit only, initially? If that is the case, then I could see how people could get annoyed having to buy a second identical lens just to get the D100 body if the lens was released before the D100.
