Roberts Imaging just emailed me AGAIN that they are shipping the 18-200VR lenses! I was on their "LIST", and now have another "SECRET CODE WORD" to order the lens. PM or email me immediately if you want that code to order that lens! (I already ordered one from Cord Camera, due here on 12/29. ) PS I deleted my prior PMs and emails from those who responded for the first one of these so I can't remember who you were - SORRY!
