So I just pre-ordered from Best Buy... looking at my order it says it has a release date of 7/15. I really hope this is not the case... I am going on vacation the week of the 8th. :-[

I just got off the phone with TigerDirect again.  I asked her if she could check with a supervisor as to when they will get them.  They are still sticking to what they said earlier, and should receive them today.  I am not going to hold my breath but it's enough hope to get me through today!  ;D

I called 3 times today, and each time they say it is coming today.  Their warehouse just hasn't updated the inventory yet.  On my order screen it still says Back-Ordered.  Honestly, I think tonight the date will magically change to July and I will call tomorrow and they will have no idea that they ever said 6/25.  :(  we'll see.

Sometime I hate being right!  They said "I'm sorry sir, I don't know who gave you that date but I show no date listed at all."  awesome :)

I ordered the T4i w/ 18-135 STM from Adorama on June 18th.

Just spoke with their customer service rep via direct messages on Twitter, and she said:

"The only info we have right now is to expect a delivery during the 1st week of July."

I'll post an update here when my order moves from its current "pending" status to being marked as "shipped."

Well, I did get my money back from Beach Camera. Glad that didn't turn out to be a problem.

So again, I leave on vacation July 9th. It's not looking good at this point to get the T4i / 18-135 STM kit in time. If I can't get it before this weekend, I'm going to just forget about a new camera before the trip.  There's really not enough time to get to know the camera anyway and definitely not enough time if I got it next week. My original Rebel 300D might be old and have some relative limitations, but I know it well and still get great photos with it.

So since this is the reality, I may even wait until the 70D comes out (most likely September) and see what it's going to offer. The T4i / 18-135 STM will have many reviews by that time too.

I just called Norman Camera and the guy said the last they've heard it was going to be mid to late July before they will get the T4i / 18-135 STM kit in stock.

Spoke with B&H today.  I was told Late July, "hopefully."

I am just about ready to jump ship and find myself a nice used 7D, skip the whole "entry level" DSLR phase and jump straight to the crop format flagship, then call it a day.

I think I may wait until the 70D comes out this fall. The 70D is rumored to become the flagship crop camera and the 7DII will go to full-frame. The 70D most likely wont have dual processors but with a Digic 5+, it will probably out perform the 7D anyway.

It does depend how many of the features that the 70D I will really like so I still could end up getting the T4i. But, like I said, I'm not in a hurry since I've decided to give up the idea on buying a new camera before my vacation.


Edit:
I just saw the latest rumor that says the 7DII will be an APC-H and not full-frame.

Any updates anyone?  I wish Canon would be more transparent and let its customers know when we can expect the lens to be available.

The moon is rumored to be made of green cheese, too.
