Your retailers are backordered, and never have them. I wanted to buy the 17-55, f/2.8 lens this weekend. In Taxachusetts (AKA Massachusetts) this weekend, they had a tax-free holiday weekend. So, it would have been great to spend $1200-$1400 on a nice piece of Nikkor glass. yet, no one, and I mean no one, has it in stock. I spoke with several very upset retailers over the weekend. this lens, and the 18-200 mm, are virtually non existant in retail stores. A few of them basically laughed at me, like I was crazy, when i told them I wanted to buy the 17-55. They have not had them in months.

And you beg your customers not to buy "gray market"? At least, if you do, you can get them. If I had known the lens situation was going to be this bad, I probably never would have bought a Nikon. I really want to give you some of my hard earned money, Nikon. Yet, you won't let me. This situation really has to improve, soon. Yes, there are some D40 owners that really would like to blow wads of cash on some nice glass.
