UPDATE: It now appears that we have a release date for the Nikon Z 180-600mm lens, which as outlined below is already being affected by shortage issues.

While this information comes a week before Nikon said it would announce a shipping date, the Nikon Z 180-600mm f/5.6-6.3 VR is being listed by both Nikon Japan and Adorama in the US as starting to ship on August 31. So if you've placed a pre-order, hang tight as the first batches should be on their way soon!
