There are many non US Canon websites. You did check those right?
No but I appreciate your passive aggressiveness.
That's irrelevant in my view. If Canon USA is no longer importing it into the US, stock will dry up. Other than gray market. It could mean it's been discontinued globally, that a mark II is imminent, or it could just mean Canon USA has chosen to discontinue it in the US for whatever reason.
There have been numerous Canon products over the years that haven't been sold in the US. Things like QD versions of film bodies, or the EOS M2. To be fair, I'm not aware of any lenses in that category though.
