This is the text many FR-readers send me via email:

From AmazonUS

Hello,

Due to a lack of availability, we will not be able to obtain the following item(s) from your order: “Fujifilm XF 14mm F2.8 Lens Wide Angle Lens”. We’ve canceled the item(s) and apologize for the inconvenience. If you see a charge for the canceled item, we will refund you within 1-2 business days. If you are still interested in purchasing this item, it may be available from other sellers.

Sincerely,

Customer Service Department

Why this? I don’t know, but I suppose that Fuji is producing a lot of X-E1 and XF18-55, and now has to produce also the new X100s and X20. Maybe it’s simply too much right now and there could be another delivery delay. In Europe the 14mm lens should not be available before mid-end february.

B&H expected availability is still for January 31, see here.
