Only 1000 Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lenses are produced every month

Only 1000 Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lenses are produced every month


The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lens has been out of stock since it was announced in August 2018 (I am lucky to have one). Nikon Japan already issued several apologizes on the lens shortage. A few months ago Amazon removed the order option for the Nikkor 500mm f/5.6E and the lens no longer appears in Amazon's search results. Amazon also canceled all existing pre-orders (for that reason I strongly suggest ordering from Adorama and B&H).


A few months ago I posted some possible explanation on why the lens is hard to find. A reader recently sent me a screenshot from the German NPS website that states the monthly production capacity of the 500mm f/5.6 lens is limited to approximately 1000 lenses:


Previous coverage and reviews of the new 500mm f/5.6E lens can be found here. Check pricing and availability at:

I think the Nikon Df camera will be discontinued next

I think the Nikon Df camera will be discontinued next


The Nikon Df is now almost €900 off at the official Nikon France store. The Df is no longer available for sale at Amazon France and Amazon Germany.

Similar is the situation in the UK - only used Nikon Df cameras are listed at WEX Photo, Park Camera and Amazon UK.

Surprisingly, in the US the Nikon Df is still listed for $2,746.95 at Adorama and B&H, but I expect that to change soon  - this price in 2019 is a joke ($1,000 more than the Nikon Z6).

No, this is not the Nikon Z9 camera design patent
