Amazon stills says 30 June.  Thinking of canceling my order with them

I wonder why this post is still up as we all know Adorama does not have this lens for shipping.

Probably because we have been shipping - albeit limited - number of units?

Thanks, Helen.  However, in this case I have to disagree.  'In Stock' generally means that it's available for immediate shipping, not that my order will put me at the back of a queue for shipping once it's really available.

Stating, "Adorama is receiving the lens and fulfilling preorders," would be an accurate statement.

Agreed, sort-of........ with the exception of when the quantity of units in any single delivery enables us to fulfill all pre-orders/back-orders, AND we  still have some over for orders placed more recently. However, as we won't usually know how many units are going to be allocated to us within a single delivery - or how regularly we are going to  receive them - we would never want  estimate the likelihood of  an order placed today being fulfilled within the following day or two. Especially if you add to the  mix cancellation by customers of back-orders!

Hi Helen!
I have lots of respect and admiration for you. You once helped me by letting me pay for gear in advance. :)
However this post says: "Lens is in Stock at Adorama". For me, and the rest of us it means that we can log on to your site and order it. I would even say it's ok if it said "Will ship within few days."
That is not the case is it?
So I was wondering why the post was up. Nothing against CC or Adorama. I admire them both!

My lens shipped yesterday (06/05) from Adorama. Delivery is next Wednesday (06/12). I pre-ordered on 065/13 around 8 PM Pacific time.

(Sorry about the typo on the pre-order date. Obviously it couldn't ship before it was ordered. But, you knew that.)

I pre-ordered at Amazon and they still show first ship from Canon 6/30 so I searched and found one elsewhere.  Had the lens in stock and shipped it today.  Expect delivery 6/12 - in time for safari end of the month

Should see some Sample Images mid July then ?? Where are you off to RGF ??

Am I reading Waterloo's Post right, he Pre Ordered on the 13th June, it was dispatched on the 05th June, he's receiving it on the 12th June, ?? Wish we had that system in Singapore, I think.

That's right. Just checked the UPS tracking and it just left Hodgkins, IL (near Chicago). Another 1900 miles to Reno, NV. UPS tracking now says delivery on Thursday. Originally it was Wednesday.
