You might reach out to Sony USA and ask them where they've sent product?

Re: G Master 600MM F/4 Love anyone..?

I would be pleasantly surprised if any manufacture would disclose how their supply chain works. Have you done this with success?

Even if they said they sent X many units to dealer ABCDE, one still would have to get in line..

Pre-order is the best way to go...

and sometimes regional camera stores may get a small supply while you wait for B&H and the giant retailers.

Some retailers may authorize the card to secure the pre-order

Side note non photo related I scored a playstation 5 from B&H photo pretty fast with the Notify when available feature. less than 30 days

I think all of them are at the Olympics at the moment (did you see that article on Sony's presence at the Olympics - there were a lot of them there!). Have a look for refurbished units shortly after the Olympics end.

You'll have to call your authorized dealer and get on their list.  When products come into the dealer they then call the folks, in order, on the list.

You will never see a FE 600mm f4 in the wild on a dealer website as available.  You can pre-order with the big dealers like B&H, but you will have far better results and less wait time with regional dealers like Bedford's.

Sooner or later the demand will slow down and I will be able to snag one from Allens Camera or Normans up in Michigan. I am also wanting that new 50MP Sony Body to glue on that 600 ..!

It wasn't listed online and they may still have it. Focus Camera also had a 600mm in stock yesterday. You need to call these dealers (I bought the 400mm that Unique had)

It's not really asking them how their supply chain works is it?

If you called and said: I want to buy a G Master 600 lens and I can't find one, can you tell me who might have one that's not spoken for?"

And, No, I've never done this as I've never been looking for what is likely a (relatively) low volume/high dollar product.

If I understand your reply correctly sorry if I do not

I used to work for a camera store.. Generally speaking if I got a call and the caller said I am looking for a XYZ can you tell me who might have one not spoken for. That is impossible to know who has a waiting list and what stock levels are.

As a camera store I am only worried about my shop.. I am not sending business elsewhere I suggest you make some calls and send some emails. I can add you to our waiting list.

I cant imaging the manufacture saying we sent 5,000 units to this shop and 100 here and 800 there. It is also a HUGE security risk for bad people knowing .

If you had ordered as suggested two month ago you would be more than half way there now…
