Max is in Germany; I seriously doubt that he pre-ordered that lens from B&H. We don’t know the circumstances about pre-ordering camera gear in Europe. I am not “defending” B&H here, just noticing...

How do you get off of a thread or stop being emailed everytime someone says I am from Germany or I haven't got mine yet and other trivial posts? I am trying to operate my business and have been interrupted six times in the last hour with nonsense.

Did you mark the thread to receive an e mail if someone replies? If you did I suspect that you should be able to remove the check mark.

Yeah, and soon a 600mm f4! The 135mm is going up in price $200 on Sunday, so anyone interested in it should probably pull the trigger on one!

I know we are sort of putting the cart before the horse, I have been checking out a long case to carry this lens mounted to a camera.


I just received the Think Tank Digital Holster 150. It's a very nice fit for the gripped body and the 200-600mm. However, I don't think you could zip it if you also have the teleconverter attached; but there is a side pocket that could hold that.

There's currently a deal where they will send to you a free Holster Harness if you buy the case by Aug 31st.

Here's the info on the B&H site - https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1489971-REG/think_tank_photo_710883_digital_holster_150_v2_0.html

Mike, thanks for the reassuring feedback on the Digital Holster 150. Mine should arrive on Wednesday and I saw the rebate for the strap too!

The 200-600 also fits in the Shimoda large ICU mounted to an a9, with room for other lenses (16-35GM, Tamron 28-75, and Leica 80/1.4 in the pic, plus room for a 4th). I'm camping and hiking next weekend and will arrange it to fit in the middle of the ICU for better balance along with some combination of shorter lenses, although I doubt I'll hike with the camera mounted to the lens in the pack, as I prefer to wear it on my hip on a spider holster.

Got my lens today and got a chance just to take some test shots. So far nothing short of impressed. I have an A7RIII and I was surprised the focusing speed is very fast and accurate IMO (which is a bit surprising considering the A7RIII isnt exactly know for its AF speed). Definitely worth every penny.

Cancelled my order with dell as Jim Patterson Was able to source a lens in stock. Thanks Jim. Dell customer service did admit that the lens was not in stock. I will never order from them again.

Murphy's Camera in Nashville just phoned and said mine is on its way. They are so nice. Thanks to Guy again for letting me know about these guys. Bought the 24 off them in June and will buy all my stuff in future.

Thanks for sharing that....my take away....for a dog running at you the lens selection doesn't really matter. If you never want to miss a shot of a dog running at you....buy an A9

I will say after shooting the barn swallows in flight yesterday, I would preliminary conclude that I couldn't really appreciated a significant drop in AF performance compared to past visits with the 100-400 (with and without TC). But the swallows weren't flying frequently enough yesterday to take the time to swap back and forth with the 100-400 so I didn't bring it out of the bag....I used all my chances to test the new lens.

Looks like we all escaped from the clutches of Dell unharmed.

Bad performance from them coming and going. Lied outright about having the lens in stock. Didn't handle the ordering or refund process as efficiently and transparently as other retailers I've dealt with. I won't ever be using them again either.

I got my lens yesterday from ProCam but haven't had a chance to play with it yet. Looking forward to getting out with it today for some shots at my favorite bird spot. Love the photos I've seen so far. Thanks to everyone for posting them.

And for you guys with the 600 f/4, please stop posting photos! They are SO gorgeous.... The last thing I need is to be lusting after a $13,000 lens. Sheesh.

Got my lens from Kenmore, thanks to Jim Patterson, and i must say they are the gold standard when it comes to packing and shipping a lens this large. Box was three times the size of the lens filled with peanuts, with no movement.
Took a few test snaps of the birds outside and am amazed how sharp the lens is wide open from the first few snaps.

I just saw this video comparing the 100-400 with and without a 1.4 tc to the 200-600.

The biggest thing I took away from it, the a9 is worth every penny.
Time to try to save for the a9.

I preordered mine on June 13th from B&H but its still on backorder. Anyone else in the same boat?


I too pre-ordered mine from B&H in the first minute when preorders could be placed. I was also attending Kando 3.0 and left to drive there on August 9, the date that the lens was expected to ship, and I naturally assumed mine might be in that first batch so I called B&H, told them to hold shipping my lens until 8/21, so that it would arrive after my return on 8/24. They agreed to do so. Then, on August 12 I got a notice from B&H that my order (Order #1057895264) was still on backorder. This unnerved me so when I checked in at Kando on 8/13, there was a B&H rep there (B&H was a partial sponsor of Kando) and I asked if he could check up on my order. I never heard from him again while at Kando, but assumed that my lens had been set aside to ship on 8/21. Unfortunately on 8/21 I received another Backorder notice from B&H and at that point I sent them an e-mail asking what was going on. Following is the response from Isaac H, of B&H:

Unfortunately, at this time we do not have any concrete information from Sony when we will have more of these in stock. We have received some shipments, but it is being released in limited quantities by the manufacturer. We fulfill all orders in the same order as they were received. I wish I had more detailed information for you but at this time that is all that we know.

I found that response unsatisfactory as I've been following this thread and know many folks had ordered from B&H, and likely more than a few after I placed my order, and yet my order was still "back ordered". So I cancelled my order and found the lens elsewhere. Interestingly I had a similar experience with B&H when I preordered (the first minute again) the 135mm F1.8, and again found the lens more quickly elsewhere after receiving numerous "backorder notices". At the time I assumed this was a fluke on B&H's part, and thus it did not deter me from pre-ordering the 200-600.

So, after dealing with B&H for more than 20 years, it would seem they have grown too large to care about customer loyalty or customers who "aren't connected". And more importantly to me, the phrase:

We fulfill all orders in the same order as they were received.

in Isaac H's response to me is far less than truthful, if not an outright lie. If I cannot trust a dealer, I go elsewhere.

Therefore I've placed my order for a Sony a7R IV with another vendor, who has treated me far more honestly in meeting my needs for the 200-600mm lens. And that won't be the last piece of gear I order from them. My motto is "He who dies with the most toys, wins".
