I live in the big Apple.
Ive spend many thousands of dollars at B and H since 1970!
They advertise, " you come to B and H ".
Nikon tells me to be patient.
i purchased a gift certificate in December for the amount to buy a D200 when it would be available.
It is April and B and H will not even allow us to order it!
I sold one of my D100's thinking id have the D200 by Feb/March.

What the heck is going on????????????????????

Demand exceeds supply as usual, the D200 is red hot and Nikon hasn't made enough of them to even fill the initial orders. It is sought after by both pros and enthusiasts and this further stretches the supply chain. One must remember that Nikon does not have the manufacturing size of Canon and their "hot" products are always in short supply right after introduction. The new 18-200VR lens is even harder to get than the D200 body right now. Be patient, it is worth the wait...

B&H has D200 kits (D200 + 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 DX) in stock now. You'll need to wait if you only want the body.
