I just checked Amazon.com and Amazon.jp and both have it in stock.

why the hell 90 percent of all advertisements, be it prof. dealers, ebay, classifieds show cameras with without cap?

i don't like to open my cameras for more than 2 seconds when chang ing the lens.
Flickr is a graveyard -- has been for some good time now.
That really isn't true you know. It achieves that balance between being centred on the photographs while retaining a very important social element better than any other site I know. There are other photo gallery sites, some of them visually very good, but socially they are pretty sterile. There are obviously sites which major on the social side but the photographs come a poor second.
I don't have any actual statistics, but anecdotally I'm seeing people who moved away from Flickr drifting back.
I'm looking to try to learn more about lighting and use flash. Does anyone have a suggested book or online video series that you thought was worth your time and money?

Interesting shot, Zv! I'm finally starting to get out with this lens and had a chance to use it on New Year's Eve. I compared it against the 24-70 f/2.8 II on the 5DIII (not really a fair comparison). It's wasn't anything scientific, but looking at two similar shots, the 11-22 is nearly as sharp, has 90% of the contrast, and only lacks in flare resistance. I'm very impressed and the IS came in handy for the fireworks as well.
Here are a couple of the shots from the other night:
View from my hotel f/11, 20s, ISO 100 -1EV @20mm (32mm equivalent) on a tripod:
View of fireworks (from the opposite side of the river), handheld f/5.6, 1/8s, ISO6400 @22mm (35mm equivalent), processed with DxO PRIME:
-10 when this taken, that hair plus the hot springs are the only reason these guys survive, adaption at it's best.
