I stopped in at my local camera store (large national chain here in Canada) and asked about the 150-600.. The fellow said that I could pre-order it and that delivery would be early next week. I asked why, being as everyone else seems to be sold out until march, and they told me that they were Tamron's number 1 dealer in Canada...

I looked around the store and did not see ANY Tamron lenses for sale..... I checked later on the web for stock... out of about 30 stores in Canada, only five or six stock any Tamron lenses, and of those that do, only about 4 lenses are mentioned.... everything else is special order...  Number one and prefered seems like a dubious claim, particularly when the Best Buy just down the road has a dozen lenses....

I also know someone who pre-ordered the GoPro 3+ through them and was also told the same story. I had mine 2 months ahead of her and they were availiable EVERYWHERE else first..

Moral of the story, never beleive a salesman at H***Y's Camera.
The best camera is the one in your hands

;D ;D ;D .. I can understand that salesmen have to BS sometimes to make a living, but to say that they are Tamron's "number 1 dealer" when he can't even support it with decent amount of Tamron products is pretty stupid ... maybe he's a newbie salesman who hasn't mastered the art of BSing ;D

Pre-ordered today :D  $1249.95 and will be delivered middle of next month when it goes on sale.  Better price than I was expecting as the local distributor said less than $1399 and another retailer confirmed $1400 as their price.

I was going to wait for the price to drop below $1,000, but after seeing the different reviews and photos taken with this lens, I am considering paying the early adopter cost.

It's out of stock at both B&H and Adorama (and probably everywhere else).  Has anyone heard any dates for when supplies will be replenished, or have any idea how long the waiting lists are?

I ordered mine from b&h about 1-14 and got it yesterday so I am guessing 2-3 wks if you order now
