Anyone else get really fidgety waiting on a back-ordered lens?
3 months ago

...I am excited for my new Tamron 150-600 and I thought I'd have it within 2 days of ordering. It feels like it's been weeks but it's only been 6 days haha. And when I call B&H... "We don't have any word from Tamron about when it's coming in, sorry".

Arghhh!

How do you guys handle waiting on a lens? Is there any point in calling Tamron to at least try to get a date? I know... I can't change it even if I know what the date is. I just would like an idea if we're talking days or weeks or months.

What's the longest wait you've had for a consumer lens? Have you ever cancelled and bought from somewhere else that had it available sooner? I'm not even sure if that's an option or if my money is just 100% committed now.
