I am posting this for the people that were having problems finding the Nikon AF-S 35mm f/1.8 DX in stock for MSRP like I did. I finally found two online retailers that have them in stock: Arlington Camera Inc, and Camcor Inc. Arlington Camera has a big in stock sign under the picture when you go through their Nikon lens selection, while Camcor does not note that its in stock but also does not note that its back ordered. So instead of paying $280-350 for a $199 lens give them a try. I just ordered one from Arlington Camera and canceled my allocation order with Amazon. I hope this helps anyone looking for this lens. Edit: Arlington Camera has listed my item as shipped and has provided me with a tracking number.
