Let's hope they change the price for those of us that have pre-ordered
Are you sure about that? If anything, the price is likely to go up
. When the 70-300mm L was available for pre-order, it was initially set at $1500, then the price went up to $1600 just before release - Adorama honored the preorder price, Amazon canceled everyone's preorder at the lower price, IIRC). Canon has raised the price of many of their recent lenses between the announcement and the actual launch (70-300L and the new supertele primes).
So, you might not
want to hope they change the price...just sayin'.
