6/8/2012 - I placed my order with Amazon.
7/8/2012 - I received an email from Amazon stating that my order would be canceled on 8/13 if I did not confirm that I wished to continue waiting.
7/9/2012 - I confirmed that I wished to continue waiting and received an email confirmation from Amazon.
7/13/2012 – Without notice, the order drops out of my order history. I contacted Amazon and was told that the order had been canceled. I was told I could order again, but that would put my order at the end of the line. I never could get an explanation of why the order was canceled after I confirmed that I wished to continue waiting. Based upon the 7/8 email from Amazon, confirming that I wanted to continue waiting seems to have accelerated the cancellation (7/13 vs. 8/13).
7/16/2012 – Thanks to the Canon Rumors website, I purchased the Rebel T4i w/18-135 STM kit from a Best Buy in San Antonio.
7/17/2012 – No Best Buy with 100 miles has the kit.
