He said they had a clue, it should be coming in the next few months and they expect at least one unit in July.

Not to shoot the messenger, but that is really pace-poor news.

Enthusiasts (not official Pros) will be lucky to get a Z 70-200mm f/2.8 S lens before end of 2020.

What in world is hold up?

Nikon's S lens are supposed to be made inside Japan. And Japan has barely been impacted by Covid-19. Japan's numbers are less than 1/50th of U.S. Nikon should have had sufficient stock when they announced lens availability in early Feb. 2020.

Nikon must have found a serious problem with Z 70-200mm f/2.8 S lens, forcing them to start over.

I believe it's being made in Thailand not Japan, which is probably why it's delayed.
