Last week I made a purchase for the 85mm F/1.4G from B&H. At the time the listing said "usually ships in 3 to 7 working days" I called yesterday to inquire about the status of my order. He quoted the 3 to 7 day bit. Later that day, on the listing for the lens at B&H, it was changed to "Back Ordered". What a bummer as you can imagine.

Any guesses from the experiences of other Nikonians out there, as to how long it takes Nikon to fill back orders? Just out of curiosity I checked a few other major suppliers and they are out of stock as well. I'm sure I could find one somewhere. But I'll only purchase something like this from a few trusted sellers that I've dealt with before.
