Nikon can't even supply lenses that are current!!!

Last year I put my name down for a 2x Z converter to use with the 70-200, after a few months I gave up. I've now been waiting weeks for the 105mm Z Macro. Nikon are just too slow rolling out new lenses and after they launch them they are impossible to get.

Forecasting demand is not an exact science. The original DX 18-200 was on back order for 2 years - even though Nikon set up a new production line to increase the supply.

Sounds like Nikon has an on going Forecasting problem, and Nikon needs to address it.

From an outside (customer) perspective; it appears Nikon makes big announcement, starts taking orders from Nikon distributors, totals up numbers; then starts making production run for total.
