Nikon 24mm f/1.4G scarcity thoughts — production suspended?

The Nikon 24/1.4G I’m testing was made available to me by B&H Photo, which I’m really glad for, since they are darn hard to find. When B&H lists an item as “temporarily unavailable”, it means that their buyer cannot get a delivery date. Which is very strange for a newly released lens.

Even though the lens costs about $2200, it’s just not available through the usual sources, a fact I’ve also confirmed also with LensRentals.com, which has been able to obtain only two copies so far.

Has Nikon perhaps temporarily suspended production because of the autofocus issue? That’s just my own wild guess, having no factual basis. But it seems to fit the situation.

It’s disappointing that Nikon is publicly silent on this widespread autofocus problem, the worst I’ve ever seen. Is Nikon aiming to be the Toyota of lenses? My Nikon PR and service contacts have not responded to my email or phone inquiry.
