AAFES ships via USPS and you won't get another update until it shows up at your door. Shipping from overseas takes 7-14 days.

^^^ at least you were able to order it. With the money saved, I wouldnt mind waiting for it. When I looked, that lens wasnt even on the list anymore.

I received my 7D today also. There must have been some additional discounts that I wasn't aware of since I was only charged $1286 (instead of $1387) for my 7D/28-135mm Combo. I think I'm going to sell the lens since I probably won't ever use it.

Got my 580 ex ii today. It has the International Warranty card. How does that affect me just in case I need to bring it in?

You should also have a USA warranty card (they always include an International warranty card too). All Canon products from AAFES have a USA warranty.

Look at all of the documentation and double-check to make sure there isn't a USA card there...

That's strange. I'd suggest calling AAFES' customer service, but finding someone that would actually understand the situation you're in would be difficult at best.

I wonder if it would be worth it to just let it go and only raise your concern to AAFES if there's an issue within the 1-yr warranty period? Odds are, there won't be any issues with the flash. I've also heard that Canon USA will usually warranty the item anyway, as long as you have a receipt showing that is was purchased in the last year. (I do know they are strict about the receipt and the one-year period.)

Just a thought,
Bryan
