Our reader Haija sent us the screenshot you see here on top to confirm that after 154 days delay Amazon US is now shipping the first NEX-7 with 18-55mm kit lens. Right now only third party resellers at Amazon (Click here) are offering that kit (overpriced!).
I missed that: While I was comfortably sleeping in my European bed plenty of Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 lenses for NEX (Click here) were available at Amazon. It run out of Stock quickly but it managed in that short time to become the most sold mirrorless item of the store (Click here to see the current rankings).
