Lenses / Re: Who has pre-ordered or will order 200-400

Finally! I pre-ordered one back in 2011. It's been a loooooong wait, and still is...

I want it badly, but don't believe it until I actually see it ;) *cross my fingers*

There are many different reports [cr0] from all around about some few exclusively selected photogs (ambassadors?) trying out completely new versions of the mystery 200-400x1.4. But is it only hoax or spookes, as there are no real hard evidence of the super lens itself?
I have tried a pre-production sample some four to five months ago, and I was very excited, but I understand it was the exact same version that Canon sent to the London Olympics 2012 back in August. What has actually happened with the development since? Nothing is out, no images, no rumours, no lens...?

If you want to be more creative and develop your photography skill, you should consider getting a tilt/shift lens. Canon has a strong lineup with 17mm, 24mm, 45mm and 90mm. They are all very sharp but of course you have to focus manually.

What is holding them back? What's the problem with this particular lense? It's been over eight months since Canon put pre-production samples in the hands of the Olympic photogs, and since then... nothing! What are they doing back in Japan?

I want the lens. I want it bad. It would be perfect for my kind of indoor sports photography. It is kind of traumatic having to wait two years for it. So far. I've read it will ship this summer. But no sign what so ever that it is a realistic rumor.

What do you think?

I'm curious to know if the 200-400/4 shown in Singapore recently was from the same pre-production batch as those test lenses that the London Olympic 2012 photogs was able to try out last August. What I mean is that the Olympic photographers apparently was very impressed with the lens' performance and capabilities already. Yet Canon chose to do the construction. Canon in Singapore is said to have shown up on the Canon EF 200-400 Experience days in January 2013, but it was when the "old" design?
