I Ordered the new Nikon f4 vr 300mm tele in January when web sites started listing it. Mine from BH. They and all other US sellers do not have any to ship, I dont think they ever did. Does anyone know whats up. I am hoping to get one by September for a wildlife trip.

Any info.

Thanks

    I believe that the Nikkor AF-S 300mm f/4E PF ED VR is in "Recall" status right now as Nikon attempts to correct VR* issues and other potential production issues.

    I suspect that within a month (or so) production could be well underway.


    *(I believe that Nikon is handling the VR issues with a firmware update, issued Apr 7, 2015. At that page Nikon also states, "Depending upon the way the camera is held when shooting, or the shooting conditions, images may be blurred even after this lens firmware is updated.")
