More info of dubious value

Not that it means anything, but on Friday I was in Calumet's main store here in Chicago buying some unrelated stuff, and asked the sales guy if he knew when they'd be getting the 5D2's, not actually expecting him to know anything, but wanting to hear what he would say. What he said was that every customer all day had asked the same question, and that the answer was "December". I should point out that he said that not knowing that I had pre-ordered one very early on, so that might have been the standard answer he was giving to people who hadn't pre-ordered, with the idea that anyone who hadn't pre-ordered certainly wouldn't be getting one before then. But, to tell you the truth, I think he was also a bit perturbed having to answer the same question over and over again, and I also got the sense that he didn't really know anything anyway.
