As Marty explained it is probably a case of supply has to catch up to demand. I noticed that B&H has them on backorder but the R1C1 kit is available. I had bought the R1C1 kit from B&H a couple of years ago and then ordered two more SB-R200s about 6 months later. At that time they had them in stock and I had no problem getting them. I was lucky because when I decide I want something it turns immediately into I "NEED" something! To get a feel for the situation I would call around to B&H and other distributors and see what kind of queue you can expect but continue to check eBay. Your other alternative, which may provide better results, is to check your local high end camera store. I have obtained a lot of Nikon gear from B&H but started to use Allen's Camera in PA when I picked up the latest TC-20 when they had it in stock and B&H did not. I also got my D4 months before I would have seen one from B&H. Sometimes "BIG" is not better. Good luck.
