We already knew that Nikon struggling to keep up with the pre-order demand of the Nikon Z fc, after an announcement earlier this month telling us exactly that. That original announcement said that the Z fc and Zfc 28mm f/2.8 Special Edition Kits were both scheduled to be released late this month, but that there are going to be delays and it will take some time for items to be delivered.

Now, a new announcement from Nikon says that the Z fc 28mm f/2.8 Special Edition Kits are on hold indefinitely. The release doesn’t specifically state that there are any delays on the lens sold separately, but given that the camera itself and the 16-50mm kits are expected to release on time, I would imagine the lens itself is what’s causing the delays.

Thank you for your continued patronage of Nikon products.

The “Z fc 28mm f / 2.8 Special Edition Kit”, which is scheduled to be released in late July 2021, has received a large number of reservations beyond expectations, and due to the delay in parts supply, the supply amount is sufficient for release, is not expected to be available.
Therefore, we have decided to postpone the release. We will inform you of the release date as soon as it is confirmed.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused to customers who are waiting for our products.
We will do our utmost to deliver the product as soon as possible, and we appreciate your understanding.

At the moment, there’s no info as to when Nikon will be releasing the Z fc 28mm f/2.8 Special Edition Kit, but the Z fc and the Z fc 16-50mm VR kit (in both regular and silver) are still expected to be released on July 23rd – although it will probably take them some time to catch up on all the pre-orders.

    Details still somewhat murky. The notice translates as Release, but doesn’t clarify Shipment. So, will B&H have them by 7/23 and be ready to ship? Will they be shipping from the mfg plant on 7/23? Hmmm… I have pre-ordered the 16-50 zoom kit. If it shows up here next Tuesday I’ll be over the moon ?. Will let y’all know what’s up?

    There is a global semiconductor shortage affecting all sorts of electronics even the motor industry. This isn’t just a Nikon only issue
