In accordance with Nikon Rumors, Nikon Canada despatched a discover to retailers that the three lenses are “not obtainable to order.” Two of them are nonetheless listed as “in inventory” on B&H, whereas the 80-400mm is listed as back-ordered.
Earlier this 12 months, Nikon killed off the D5600, a bunch of APS-C and full-frame F-mount lenses, in addition to Coolpix B600 and a few equipment. I assume that the continued chip scarcity has one thing to do with it. It has triggered chaos within the picture trade, leaving many digicam firms struggling to sustain with the demand. Apparently, the answer was to kill off some items of substances in order that they might concentrate on these which might be in larger demand. And contemplating that Nikon is specializing in the mirrorless line-up (like many different producers), I’m not stunned that it’s discontinuing DSLRs, F-mount lenses, and prosumer cameras.
These three lenses nonetheless haven’t been formally listed as discontinued on Nikon’s web site, however we’ll replace the article when and if the corporate points a press release.
