I'm not sure what's typical in the photo world for waiting on backordered items.

Weeks? Months? Please don't say years.

Sorry.

I ordered a Nikon 6mm f2.8 around 1995. The waiting list at the time was 8 months. By the time it arrived, the project had been canceled and my employer arranged its sale, unopened, for about what we paid for it.

I put a deposit on the Voigtlander 75mm f1.8 SL II Nikon mount in February of 2011. Got my deposit back about 6 months later. It's July 2014 and Voigtlander still hasn't shipped the 75/1.8.

I'm at 2 weeks + and counting. Driving me nuts, not even a guesstimate, and there are others ahead of me in line.

What did you order?
