The Nikon D7100 was finally released yesterday and we’ve already learned from some readers that they have now got their hands on the new DSLR. Others are happy to learn that their new camera is shipping, but it’s not all good news. The reason we say this is because we are hearing that there are a few Nikon D7100 stock issues from various suppliers.
A few of our readers said that while they received an email to state that theirs was shipping, they have now been sent another stating it is currently out of stock. Then some Best Buy stores did not even have knowledge that they were getting the new camera, but if you look on their online store they do have some units for sale.
A quick search on Best Buy shows us that the Nikon D7100 complete with 18-105mm Lens is out of stock; you can still get your hands on the body-only version, although you better be quick. This is the same issue with Amazon, as they have no stock with the lens and only limited numbers of the body-only model.
However, you should be lucky that there has been limited stock because the UK has to wait until March 21 before the D7100 is made available to them. It does seem strange that the Nikon D7100 is having these problems with stock, becasue you would’ve thought this kind of thing only happened to popular smartphones or tablets, although this DSLR has been hyped for a few months now.
