FYI: DA*300/4 in stock at B&H.
I ordered from Adorama about a month ago - locking in an ordering price of US$1119+S&H. B&H was out of stock then too, so I'm encouraged that they have it back in stock. I hope Adorama can ship my order soon. I really don't want to pay $1300+ if I don't have to, but if you & lpa keep posting great pictures with that lens, I may just snap. Thanks for all your contributions here. I've lurked for over a year, and the posts here helped me prioritize my purchases as I get deeper into DSLR photography.
