Anyone else waiting on backlogged lenses or cameras ? Just curious.

It's puzzling to me that a Canon lens (RF 85mm F2 IS STM ) has been on backorder for months. I ordered mine in the first week of September.

There are a few places that say they have it, but some are > than retail, some say it's to be delivered several weeks out (which is sort of the same as saying that they don't have it in stock), and some sites I don't want to do business with, anyways.

Because the overall trend in the camera industry hasn't been good for 2020, I am uncritically wondering why such a delay ? Are there other manufacturers that are likewise affected with delivery delays ?
