Canon 24-70 ii in stock at Onecall and PC.Nation at MSRP of $2,299. Get em while they last!

Of course reviews have been mixed from Glowing to mediocre. I am taking my chances and hope to get a good copy.

I haven't seen any reviews saying it was mediocre although there have been some trolling comments by 9 year olds on the forums.
I have seen some who think that every lens is exactly the same and perfect, in spite of the abundant that lenses vary, including Zeiss.

Do you have a link to onecall?  I could not find it on their site.  They are local, only a few miles from me, so I was going to see if I could get one. Its much easier to return if it is not up to par.

Yeah it doesn't seem to be on the OneCall site. Maybe only if you call them?

Watch out for Beach, they have no local stock and their web page has it for $2999! So don't make a quick order expecting $2299 and not realize that.

Good catch. Son of a beach I didn't even notice that.

PC Nation thing was a bust. If you were a new customer they waited on verification while selling to others who ordered later apparently and you got shafted or maybe they were just slow in updating stock status and never had them left for most of the time they said they still did today. I think only a few of the first callers got them, at best. Everyone else will be in for a bad surprise even if you chose expedited shipping methods. Glad I called to verify what was going on or not. Kenmore did have them though! Nice service.

This morning I noticed Spammer listed the lens in stock and I purchased 1 of the 3 units they were expecting to receive this afternoon.  It was shipped this evening and the lens is now again listed as backordered.  I believe today's was the fourth shipment they have received in the last few weeks so they seem to be getting a steady supply.  Very friendly and helpful staff.

Spammer?  Spammer = Spammer

hah, the bulletin board is obviously hating on most vendors, you need to mispell the store just enough to trick the filter but let people still known who you were talking about

So I guess they did get them in so the In Stock notice was real, but I got shafted when they sold my copy to someone behind me in line while they were waiting to personally verify my CC with me.... kinda poor policy IMO. Don't say it's in stock for a certain delivery date with fast shipping and then bump someone aside just because you need to do a CC verification and have it sell out on them in the meantime.

Anyway proves the point to always call and never bother with website ordering, who knows what is really going on when you do that.

They had been spamming the forum with fake users making posts about how great they are.  Now a mention of them turns to Spammer.  Well deserved.
