One of missing pieces in my puzzle.

Since I'm no hurry for UWA, willing to wait for X-mas rebate.

I was going to wait for a rebate too, but then pre-ordered one when the Canon site glitched and was selling at a discount.

What was the discount rate?

$125 off 1200 for the lens, and because it was through Canon, they threw in a "100 Million EF Lens Gift Set" valued at 50 for free.

$125 off is better paying full price. Wonder what inside "100 Million EF Lens Gift Set"?

It's supposed to be a t-shirt, lens cloth and pin.  I'll find out when the lens ships any day now.  Buying the 16-35 f/4 IS was funded by selling the 16-35 f/2.8 II, and this is the first lens that I've ever pre-ordered.

Feel like a kid in the candy shop?  ;D

MTF charts look very nice when compared to 16-35 f2.8 II. Plus that 4stop IS will be a huge benefit for night time shooting.

Post some pics when you ready.

Same here, sold the 16-35 II and first time pre-order. Waiting hopeful that it will arrive soon.

Just wish I had it in hand now.  Heading up to Maine for a family gathering tomorrow, and I would have loved to try it out up there.  I'll be using primes to cover the range instead.

What I really wanted was a 16-35 f/2.8 III with optics that matches or surpasses the 16-35L f/4 IS.  That would help me reduce my lens count from MANY to MANY - 1.   ;D

They charged my credit card yesterday, and the status has changed to warehoused.  I'll have to FedEx divert it to a FedEx store, so I can pick it up after vacation.  Have fun with yours!

Well its 10 months since the Canon EF 16-35mm f4L IS has gone on sale and Canon must be selling plenty of them still because my back-ordered lens has gone back twice and Im still waiting for it. Similarly a friend is waiting for two zooms to be in stock with his dealer so Canon must either have manufacturing problems, poor stock control or great sales.

Funny how we have different experiences. I bought one new from a USA dealer at a discount within a few hours of deciding to buy one.
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, DR, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

Think I'd try a different source if you are in the US.  Canon USA, B&H, Adorama and Amazon have it in stock.

I've never heard of a lens "going back" after being ordered.  Color me confused about this lens still being backordered. Every well known authorized dealer seems to show it being in stock.

Regardless, I'd cancel from whoever it was you ordered from and (assuming you are in the US) just put in an order at B&H or Adorama or even an ebay authorized dealer like PMI Digital (those guys are great, BTW).
