I spoked to a chap at my local Jessops this morning and he said that Jessops did not have the SEL55210 in stock on its own since it was released. He couldn't even give me an estimated availability date. He recons that the lenses that were sold around the world so far were manufactured before the floods hit Thailand, which seriously disrupted Sony's manufacturing capabilities. His suggestion was to keep eyes peeled online and hope for the best. Hope this helps others looking for this lens.
