Nikon today issued two product delay notices. In both cases, we are talking about the Nikon Z fc camera.
In the first notification, the manufacturer is “happy to announce” that it has decided on the release date for the Z fc mirrorless camera and related products, announced at the end of June 2021. If at the time of the announcement the start date of sales was designated July, now a specific date has been named – 23 July.
At the same time, the manufacturer warns that “some customers who are now making pre-orders will have to wait a while before the goods are delivered.” The company explains that the number of orders for Nikon Z fc cameras and sets of these cameras and Nikkor Z DX 16-50mm f / 3.5-6.3 VR lenses “exceeds expectations.”
Other items that may also be delayed include the aforementioned silver Nikkor Z DX 16-50mm lens and Nikon Z fc camera accessories: DK-32 eyepiece, AN-DC23 strap and Z fc-GR1 extension cord.
The second notice is for the Nikon Z fc camera and Nikkor Z 28mm f / 2.8 Special Edition (SE) lens kit. Deliveries of these kits were to begin at the end of July. However, “the number of orders exceeded expectations,” and delays in the delivery of spare parts do not allow them to be completed on time, so the company decided to postpone the release. The manufacturer promises to announce the new date later.
