Again, availability is a major consideration. So it was with Sony. When the perpetual "pre-order only" etc at B&H suddenly read "IN STOCK" for the Sony 500 F4 last week, I ordered one. The B&H return policy was important, It is being shipped and should arrive 2 days from now. Funny thing is that immediately afterward the web site read "ships in 2-4 months", and has stayed that way.

The lens is a special order item. I expect B&H ordered one or two, but will not risk the money to inventory a lot of them at $13,000 each. I expect this lens is going to be a real slow seller after the initial pent-up demand is filled. Unless the A99 ends up being a killer sports/wildlife/event body.
