Has anyone heard of shipments from Adorama yet?  I talked to the guy, said only that they are still backordered....would not give me more feedback.  Ordered Feb 8th so I should be close to the top, curious.  Thanks.

Anyone heard when BH, Adorama or Amazon will ship 24-70 II?

After reading some of the stellar reports of this revamped lens and re-ordering this lens for the second time, when do we expect this baby to be born?
A few cameras and lenses and a lot of creative energy and imagination.

BH has already shipped the first order to people who preordered in February.
I ordered mine in mid April, but it hasn't shipped yet...

I received mine yesterday from my local camera dealer Horn Photo in Fresno. I have had much better luck getting new releases from the local dealer than I have BH or Amazon. I no longer preorder from the big stores as the local dealers get their shipments first. I have my 5D3's a week before most folks.

I too preordered mine from B&H in mid April but has not been shipped yet. I talked to 2 customer service reps yesterday and both somehow have no knowledge of them even getting the new lens...

I pre-ordered mine on Day 1 from B&H, and it shipped out either last night or early this morning... can't wait!

Amazon typically runs a couple of months behind on new high end photo items.  Adorama and B&H are among the first.  Small local shops also seem to be pretty fast.  They only order one at a time, and Canon seems to want to support them.

I  bought my 5D3 here before the big stores even began shipping preorders.  Great store & service.

And the fear in this is that Amazon is supposed to be adding sales tax on all orders as of this Sunday. In CA in my area that's 9.75% or about an extra $225.  Its been a nice ride in the past, but those days are coming to an end. At this point, it makes sense to buy from your local brick & mortar store and skip the shipping costs.

My local shop in Indianapolis received a shipment on 9/11 but they ran out and is still backordered... so all the big guys might already have received their lots by now...

And not to mention Amazon's legendary way of taking a >2K lens and putting it in a much larger box with no packing and shipping UPS ground.

Sooooo glad I read this thread and decided to call to check my preorder.  I have had one on order at Adorama since 7 Feb, but since then my bank switched the credit card number I used.  Of course they didn't tell me the charge didn't go through, but I just fixed it and the order will apparently go out today.   That's great because I'll be shooting non-stop for the next 5 days. 

The Adorama rep did refer to the lens as being "in stock" so they might actually process regular orders, too.
