Canon is Killing Itself - No Lenses Anywhere!!

For the past 3-4 months, all of the following lenses have been on back-order at busy sites like Adorama, Beach Camera, and even local camera shops:

50 f/1.4
85 f/1.8
100 f/2.8 macro
35 f/2
28 f/1.8

How many of you have been forced to buy off-brand lenses due to Canon's bad management? They've gotta be losing a ton of lens sales to their competitors.

For instance, the Sigma 50 f/1.4 is getting rave reviews, and despite being $200+ more than the Canon, I'm sure people are getting one because the Canon is nowhere in stock. The same with the Tamron 90 f/2.8 macro.

They better get their act together, and ship some lenses asap!!
