The 600 II that the OP is looking at falls into that category, though.  They're rare enough that availability is posted as a news item on CR and TDP, and they are still selling out pretty fast.
Yeah, I was gonna say, I completely understand why the OP wants to buy it now and ship later, because if you have a limited window, who knows when it will come back into stock.

Amazon definitely isn't the dealer to do this with; you might be able to talk B+H or Adorama into it, but, more than likely you'd be looking at smaller stores.

I'll explain.
I want to buy it now while it is still in stock.
BUT I do not know who will visit India next from USA who I know.
SO I thought I will buy it now and when I know someone is coming, I will get it shipped to that person.
Make sense now? :)
Hi Sanj, You can either,
1) Get it shipped to the most reliable closest person/friend in the lot and ask him/her to ship to whoever is leaving first. You get to incur a bit of shipping cost. Hey, if you are buying a 13K lens, $50 with shipping insurance should not be a big deal.
2) Try B&H or Adorama. They have more adaptable customer care. I prefer them over Amazon anyways due to Amazon reshipping returned items as 'new'. It is very easy for some idiot with credit card to order 600 II play/abuse for a month and return to Amazon. They will ship it right back to you sometime even without repackaging it properly.
