Hi Jerry,

I have already been in touch with this shop. I have had many dealings with them over the years and have found them to be honest as they come. They get high marks in the DC area.

Some of the orders that Fuji reportedly has not fulfilleddate back as far as August. The store is told there are no lenses in the country and yet one of the largest camera shops in the country has reportedly gone in and out of stock several times since November.

while I have usually loved my FUji equipment, this experience is making me seriously go INT to their competitor’s brand. I am a birder and do not wish to wait until migration season is over before I receive my lens. FUji needs to get with i.

fuji’s website makes it very difficult to post to the directly.

if you have any leads, I would be grateful.


Well, before you decide to dump your existing gear (usually an expensive proposition), you might check with some of the larger E-Tailers like B&H or Adorama (or any others you’d prefer) and see what their situation is.  They both have good reputations, and while I totally get a desire to be loyal to  your usual supplier, you may need to “wander off the path” a bit this time to get the lens in a timely enough fashion to be useful.

Hope it works out... changing brands is always painful (and usually expensive) and the lens is pretty awesome and well worth the wait IMHO.
