Okay; I'll admit it.

Part of my fun is trying to apply every coupon I can to something in Dell to get as low as possible.

MANY people (and a buddy of mine) are waiting for their 10-22 to be shipped from Dell.

Today I log in and what's this? It's not in my cart anymore; and oh; I can't find it in their list of DSLR Lenses.

Hmmm; Maybe we finally abused something sooo much that it's been taken away from us.

Thoughts anyone?

They sold out prolly. or your cart reset. I dont like doing that b/c coupons can eaisly expire or reach their limmit.

Im jeallous i didnt get such a great deal, but its Funny because lot of people who paid like 550 ish for a 10-22 are expierencing super long shipping delays...

I paid 710 shipped, and it shipped same day, and arrived not long after. I paid more, but i wanted it really bad too. 550 is just an amazing price. I almost feel like I overpaid and i got it for 710 shipped....

by the way, the 10-22 is really worth lustering over. Its one of my favorite lenses. Out of all the EF-S lenses (which i dont like to buy, due to campatibility issues with other cameras) the 10-22 i had no problem buying.

I'll update somewhere when I have more info, but I ordered my 10-22mm from Dell on the 12th of this month and it currently says it'll ship on/before August 29th. That's reasonable I guess, because it said on the page that it'd ship in 1-2 weeks, so I can accept that- I'm not in dire need of it or anything.

Assuming it goes through ok and everything, I'll have paid $607 for it, which I think is a great deal. I've ordered a few things from them before and haven't had issues, so I'm hoping this won't be my first.

My friend forwarded me some of those Dell deals on Friday, which is why I ended up getting a digital rebel XT. There was a 10-22mm on that list but by Sunday, both deals were gone. Usually those coupons expire after a few days, or up to a certain number of uses. I think I saw the 10-22 go for $579 with all the coupons applied.

yeah, I was able to ge it down to $567 with my Dell Preffered Account (another 2% off the price), but had to pay tax :evil:

stop complaining =) The price difference from yours to mine was another 420ex for me!

I also went to dell and paid tax, but thats almost standard.

I'm on the same boat. Dell works like this. The MSRP price starts high, they make up a bunch of marketing bs, 30% off, stackable $20 or $30, $50 and make you wait weeks. If somehow the purchasing manager finds out the product is losing profits, they'll keep the item on back order thus cancelling your order.

Even with all the DPA and coupons, $$$ still adds up after tax + shipping. Sometimes it's less of a hassle to buy from BH or Amazon even if you pay a few bucks more.

When in doubt, call the DELL sales directly. If you're nice to them, you can almost always get a better deal.

Patience, grasshopper....:-)
Earlier this year, I ordered the 17-85IS during one of the Dell deals. Total price, including tax, was $460. I also got a bunch of e-mails saying that the item is backordered, you must respond to this e-mail or we will cancel the order, etc.
I responded to the e-mails to keep the order open. Got the lens after a one month wait.
Not long after, I ordered the 10-22, also with a Dell deal. Total price was $640. Had it in 2 days.
Last week I ordered a 10-22 for my gf. Total price was $567 (no tax where she lives). Right now my status page says on backorder, estimated shipping date is 8/29. If this order gets delayed, and doesn't ship for a month or two or three, it's no problem, simply because the lens is not a "I must have it now" thing. She has a 20D, a 300 f/4 L IS, and a 100-400 L IS to keep her busy, all of which I bought for her (hey, she's my baby :-) ).
Her interest is in bird photography, so the 10-22 is for those "Oh boy, I'm glad I had that lens with me" occasions. May not get a whole lot of use for a while, but at that price, it's worth waiting for. And we'll have plenty of photo ops in the near future to use it (building a new house in Florida; lots of places for great pictures there).
Remember, Dell sells this stuff through a 3rd party distributor. When these deals come up, they must get a ton of orders for them. The smart thing to do is pull the item from the web site until they get caught up with the backlog. The 10-22 has been on and off the Dell site numerous times. If you missed it this time, don't worry, it'll be back with more sales, coupons, etc.
Now, go out and take pictures with the stuff you already have, and have fun! :-)

Fully agree with the above. I got mine cheap (compared to UK) in Hong Kong, and planned to use it a while and then sell it on...

While I have an APS-C camera, the 10-22 will never be sold! It's a peach!

If you get emails to the effect of your order has been delayed, call them up and complain. I got $200 in compensation coupons plus my shipment upgraded to overnight.

anyone know if it's possible to get this kind of credit put on the lens order, so it'd take that much off the total price you paid, rather than something you can use later?
