p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Nikon "Not currently taking orders" on 800mm PF 6.3?


Hi there! I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this; I recently contacted my local photo store here in Portland about trying to get an 800mm PF 6.3, and they mentioned Nikon is "not currently taking orders" on this lens. As Summer is fast approaching, I am hoping to get my paws on one before the end of summer (I know, very wishful thinking!), but it sounds like it's going to be awhile. Does anyone know what's going on? Chip shortage?

I would ring around a few other stores if I was you. They seem to be reasonably available ATM. They are currently in stock at some stores even here in NZ!

That's a good idea; we sadly only have one (big enough) photo store where I am, but I've got a reservation down at a few other stores online; as far as I can tell, no one but the scammer stores selling grey market as new in the US has any in stock depressingly.

They aren't ready for people that haven't been on the waiting list. The 2 largest retailers on the way coast, B&H and service photo still have hundreds EACH in their wait list as of 4-6 weeks ago.

The Nikon rep doesn't expect the pre orders from before the pre order halt last July to clear till at least the end of the year.

I'd download the Nikon PDF for the current List of Nikon Authorized Dealers and just start calling them. I doing the Nikon reps are sending 800PF open stock to stores that don't have an empty wait list though.

If you are in Portland, I was at The Shutterbug in Portland on Sunday and they had an 800PF on the shelf. I'd call them to see if it is still available.

The two 'major' camera stores in my area both told me they have been reliably getting 2-3 every month on average. I think my spot in line is now under 20 and there's always people who don't show up or decline the order (there is no financial commitment to making an order) so hopefully sometime this year.

I can't thank you enough, I didn't think I was going to be able to get one this year! I *cannot* get over how light this thing is, especially compared to the 400 2.8 I had when I had my A1. The stabilizer is incredible too! Now to debate whether or not to put a Lenscoat on.
