From information I gathered; others may not have the same problem as me. It would depend on which warehouse the order was sent to to be fulfilled. It seems that orders from the website get sent to specific warehouses based upon customer location. And from there it depends on that warehouse getting stock. And their ability to get stock may not be related to the age of your particular order.Damn, I wonder how many people are ahead of me in the queue for the refurbed 28-70. I was hemming and hawing for months. If I'd known how long it would take I would've ordered way before December.
And yeah, wanted to change my credit card on the purchase, and after an hour wait on the phone they told me I'd have to cancel the order and reorder, which I would not do since it was like $400 cheaper than usual refurb. I did buy the 24-240 refurbed recently, and I got that in like three days and its turned out to be a pretty nifty walkaround lens. The 28-70 is the first time I've had any problems with the refurb site. I don't know why they list them in stock if they're... not.
