Never tried using a warming filter, they are not used that much now that we are in the digital era.

2-3 months, in general.  It's well-worth the wait. :D

I am on the list at B&H and also received the "still out of stock email."  Also have on backorder at Adorama.  Maybe one will come through some day before the end of summer...............hope springs eternal.  Where are (were) they available?  Except for twice the normal price on Ebay.

How long does one wait for the Lee Big Stopper?   Too long.

I'd check the Fred Miranda forums...I've bought and sold there with great results. The going rate beyond the retail market is likely to be north of $200, a premium you pay for the convenience of getting it quickly, I'm afraid.

I'm on B&H's mailing list about the Big Stopper. They faithfully send me an email every two weeks saying no stock.

I posted on Lee's FB page, and their reply is, "yep, we the stoppers are on short supply."

ebay sellers are adding, at least the ones I've seen, are adding $200 to the retail $140 price.

FYI, I just called them and placed an order even though it's not in stock...so hopefully I'll get one from the next batch. If you want to get one from them, this is probably the way to go so you don't have to keep an eye on it all the time.

I got mine from 2filters.com and waited maybe only 2 weeks.  Their prices are very good and way better than the prices on eBay. They don't charge your card until it ships so if you find one earlier you can just cancel the order.

LOL, I got that too earlier this year.

The email notification of B&H doesn't work for some products. You almost always get messages that the product is out of stock even though it is in stock sometimes.
