Check your local Best Buy's as well...two stores near me are showing it in stock...I think I'm going to run over and pick one up today or tomorrow and cancel my B+H order...

That's what I did. One of the Best Buys near me had one on Monday. Cancelled my pre-order with a US retailer who still shows it as out of stock.

B&H isn't necessarily the first to get things...especially in the 'consumer' price range.  Amazon fulfilled my S100 pre-order before B&H even started shipping them.

$199 CAD = £124 english, except its not 124 quid in england its 220 quid, not too sure how that works out, maybe the currency conversion pixies are taking their cut for the christmas party. a lot of companies call england "treasure island", you can see why

I didn't even think of checking Best Buy, thanks aloper!  Placed a pick-up order about an hour ago.  Already have it in my hand.

The lens is very interesting.  Looks really weird on my old 5D1.

How the heck do you cancel an order at B+H??? I've logged in and am looking at my order but there isn't an option shown to cancel it...

Know what ? According to the lowest price available in Europe, it's now official that 199$ = 269€ !!!!!
 >:( >:( >:(

I'm freaking pissed off, I really want that lens but that's the worst con EVER !!! There's no way I buy it for that price, for some 20€ more I can get a 50mm F/1,4 !! Holy S____ dudes, I was already upset when 199$ were 199€ but now it's too much ...
