I've used BH live chat twice in the past two days. At 1:45ET, the CSR said they still didn't know when the first batch was going to arrive. He towed the usual party line, but he did indicate that what he's being told is that BH isn't telling their customers anything because Canon isn't telling them anything - a direct effort to point blame away from BH.
Now, I find it hard to fathom (and I told him so) that Canon hasn't shared information with BH. It may be withheld from their CSRs, but the idea that they don't have an alliance partner with whom they stay in close contact during Canon's biggest launch of the year is beyond belief.
Whatever. It gets here when it gets here I guess. I was just hoping to shoot with it this weekend. Given that my order went through at 12:12AM ET, I still stand a good chance, but who knows. Certainly not CSRs at BH.
