I ordered the new Nikon 70-300mm VR lens. I guess they were supposed to be released in October but they are not out yet. Does anyone know when they will be out? Wouldn't you think Nikon would want themreleased before Christmas for increased sales?

Nikon has struggled to meet demand for the 18-200 VR for over a year now. Failing to meet the initial release date is not a huge suprise. They've taken alot of heat for new product availability and for some quality control issues. I would rather see a product released with no issues and widespread availability. I'm sure they could have released it by now, but most folks wouldn't have actually been able to get their hands on one anyway. The holiday season for DSLR's and lenses is an important one, but not nearly as big a deal as it is for some other product markets. People don't usually give $1000 camera bodies or $500 lenses as gifts.
