The wait is relative and is multiplied by how badly you want the item.

Last year I ordered a lens hood. I waited 4.5 months for it to arrive. It was no big deal.

Last Friday I ordered a lens that I have been wanting and saving for, for the past couple of years. It's been four days and it feels like forever:)

the worst part is, I keep second-guessing my choice because I don't want to wait. So I check out review sites comparing it with other lenses.

They all seem to say the same thing, that it's getting like 90% of the image quality of the really high-end 10,000 - 13,000 prime lenses, for 1/10th of the cost. The more I read, the more positive I am that this is the right choice.

So now it's even harder to wait, my 'want multiplier' went up.
