Hi,

Does anybody have some updated information regarding the release date? We've been waiting for nearly 6 months since the announcement. It almost appears as if Canon changed their mind and decided to go back to their labs to redesign it.

Thanks!

I'm guessing it's still on for Mid-Sept. and by "guessing" I mean that's what my friend at Canon told me they'll be available. :)

I've heard the same, mid to late Sept.  Oh well, gives me time to save up.  ;)

I really hope they add IS, make it white and a perfect complement to our 70-200mk.ii's...

(Fine I will be ok with black, but I want IS for $2300!!)

A few weeks ago I readon the "internet" that late Sep was a possible ship date... take it for whatever it's worth.
