They are produced in batches so don't fret they'll be available soon. Place your order with a reputable outfit like Adorama or B & H and you'll receive it days after they get their next shipment. That lens is worth a short wait, too-it's crazy fast and sharp!

Welcome to the forum.
Nikon makes all of their top tier lenses in batches.
It is not uncommon for a lens to be out of stock or back ordered everywhere.
Once they get in production all of the back orders are filled and the remaining lenses stock the shelves. If you check around you might find one on the shelf at a small store.
