  • Thank you.  The status changed the following day and I just received the lens ... I paid for expedited shipping! On a side note, FedEx in the US did not ring my doorbell although Canon shipped ...
  • Good luck.  I was at Adorama the other day and was told their waitlist for that lens is over hundred long!  So I had pre-ordered with a camera store in Washington State.  Once my lens arrives from ...
  • Thank you!!  You are right.  They are 'nice + useless' -- the hardest of the four quadrants to deal with.  I'd much rather have 'not nice + useful'.
  • Thank you ... am expecting a status change to "shipped" tomorrow.  Apparently they take "24-48 hours to process your order" before declaring it ready for pickup.  I suspect they are not like a ...
  • You were right to ask me about the confirmation email. The status of my order is now "inventory fulfilled". No tracking number and no confirmation email. This is my first experience buying from ...
  • Ah, it is indeed backordered now.  They had over 15 of them a few hours ago.
  • Are you on the US website?  I still see them "in stock".
  • I had called them before I posted my message.  They said they "got them today.  Nine in one warehouse, seven in another".  Am hopeful mine is one of them!  Should ship tomorrow.
  • Hi all, in case you are looking--the lens shows as being "in stock" at Canon USA. I just placed my order.  Hoping it arrives in 3-5 days.
  • Nice shot!  But did you have to rub it in? :)
  • Yes, Adorama told me their waitlist is now over 100!  I am surprised that there isn't a constant trickle of these lenses coming in, notwithstanding the supply chain issues.  I placed a pre-order ...
  • Anyone know of a dealer who is selling the lens at this time?  I waited a week after my previous attempt at buying the lens.  Called several camera stores in the US today.  No luck.  Was hoping to ...
  • I have only spent a couple of hours chasing down this lens, mostly on the phone.  But every retailer I called said they have a list of pre-orders and that the next few shipments are likely spoken ...
  • You are of course correct.
  • Great idea, thank you.  The small dealers never seem to get enough and the large ones have long lines to fulfill.  So I agree the middle is the place to go.  The Canon web site showed the lens as ...
  • Sorry, to be clear--I called eight maybe nine dealers last evening, and the only one that had it was the one in Hawaii.  And that dealer doesn't do mail orders.  The point about taxes is that ...
  • Thank you. Some sites show estimated availability dates but they are probably guessing. There is a dealer in Honolulu that has it in stock but won't ship! I'd love to buy it without a big tax bill ...
  • Wonder if anyone has unlocked the secret to getting this lens.  Does it make sense to pre-order?   I called a half a dozen dealers and none had an idea when it would arrive.
  • Created discussion thread Fujifilm GF lens summer rebates?
    Anyone know if the rebates below are active? GF45mmF2.8 R WR Lens $1,699.95 $200 GF50mmF3.5 R LM WR Lens $999.95 $200 GF32-64mmF4 R LM WR Lens $2,299.95 $500 The website here seems to suggest they ...
  • Thank you.  I must confess I struggle with focus peaking.  Getting it in the right color, discerning where it is the highest, etc.  Maybe it is just my aging eyes.  I am a very good distance ...
