The 11-22mm is available for pre order in Japan. Shame you guys can't get it in the states. That seems like a poor decision by Canon USA. Especially since now more people have the EOS M from this sale.
I hope that means they decide to launch the lens here!
If you really really want it, I could ship it over. Just pay for lens and the p&p! (terms and conditions apply, limited one time offer)
Thanks for your offer. US buyers also have the option of buying online from Canada:
Wait .... It's gonna be available in Canada but not the US??
Sure looks that way. Someone mentioned that it may be an indication that Canon USA is bowing out of the mirrorless market. We'll see.
Also, In Canada the EOS M kit with the 22mm includes the flash, but for $499.
