Where the bloody hell are ya?

Sorry I couldn't resist ;) Certainly strange they've managed to bring out other lenses first, but with Japan's infrastructure damage, not to mention people lost, it's plausible that factories that build only certain items were damaged and others have for the most part continued on.

It coming soon from what I've seen. They're busy building facilities to hold our first born children, given that's what they want in exchange for one.

I've got an appointment scheduled to remove my left kidney so that I can pick up the 600 MkII and hopefully can sell part of my liver for the future 200-400:lol:

Haha, that's great Rick!
That's why I went ahead and bought a used MkI because I was tired of waiting and I have no kids! :)

As I understand it, the delay is due to Canon falling behind in growing flourite due to the earthquake and tsunami, so they had to prioritize lens availability.

I expect we'll all be living in space, or on President Gingrich's Moon-base. It shouldn't weigh much.

Hopefully we won't be on the run from Cylons.
