    I went to Adorama today to get a sigma 10-20mm lens but When i got there they told me that it was out of stock. So I decided to go to B&H to find out its out of stock there too. Went to a local camera shop and they dont carry sigma. Got back home and checked the Adorama site and it says nothing about in being out of stock. Now I am mad >:[

    The guy at the shop said they might have it in 2-3 days. And I also checked before I left. And with the donate button nobody donated yet and I don't know if we are allowed to have them :p. When the mods say something Ill remove it.

    it could be a drop-ship item - ships directly from distributor's warehouse when you order online, but they don't have it in stock in their own warehouse - regular thing - most big online retailers use drop-ships in order to reduce inventory but have processing time manageable

    sometimes I think online shops delibratly try to stay at 1 item in stock just so it pressures people into purchasing the "last one"

    No issues with the Nikkor 105mm lens today. :biggrin:


    btw, the Donate button is a bit cheeky. Do you really value your comments that much?

    you know with my fingers nearly falling off through all the "which macro lens to get" threads I have a feeling that macro will be a popular subject this summer! :)
