The way prices are falling, you will actually be able to afford a 7/16 sheet of OSB!
I was hoping to get one to cover my hole in the Ozarks before winter.The way prices are falling, you will actually be able to afford a 7/16 sheet of OSB!
If I said 'cover your hole' and it didn't pertain to lens and body caps I'd get banned for sure.I was hoping to get one to cover my hole in the Ozarks before winter.
While I can't speak for the camera industry in particular, the chip shortage on a wider scale is most definitely true. Chip shortage has affected a wide range of products, even appliances.
Sure, there are plenty of raw materials for making chips: around 30% of the surface of the earth is Silicon, but that's not manufactured, tested, and packaged chips. Bosch might have supply enough for their (and their customers) use, but they aren't the industry.There's not so much a 'shortage' as a displacement of supply. For example, car manufacturers massively reduced their production requirements for 2020 onwards so the chip fabs switched to other contracts for other industries.
Bosch has brought its own fab online for internal use, there's no shortage of raw materials.
I walked through my local Best Buy a couple of days ago, there was plenty of Canon stock. R/RP/R6/R5, 90D, a couple of Rebel DSLRs and a couple of M-series bodies. Several RF lenses: 24-105/4L, 24-105 non-L, 50/1.8, 70-200/4L, along with some EF lenses (I noticed the 70-200/2.8 III, but there were others). There was plenty of Sony stock too, but personally I don't put much stock in Sony stock.When I look in the store it's all Sony. Canon - is that a gag?
The Best Buy nearest me only had a rebel and an 80D (about a month ago). There's one across the river like yours...I walked through my local Best Buy a couple of days ago, there was plenty of Canon stock.

I’m betting that’s an error, as it violates Canon’s policy for authorized dealers. If not, that is some bull-sh!t.A little depressing and shocking to see Amazon tonight has the 100-500mm L series in stock for $600 over MSRP. I can't remember seeing this before. NOT a third party merchant, but "sold by Amazon."
I'm lucky I got mine back at the beginning of the year. (I only saw the price because I was buying a card-reader and Amazon's algorithm just wanted to show me a lens I already bought from them over seven months ago.)
The chip shortage explains why my bag of Ruffles seems so empty...The chip shortage is not true and they’re simply creating a false demand bubble to justify increasing the prices
I ordered one of these in April - paid a fortune for it and still don't have the item in my hands. All I get from Canon is the BS that they had too many orders for it. Any further info from Canon & the retailer I have purchased from is just silence, no ETA nothing! Not happy about this. Instead of putting putting out new products, Canon should focus on supplying their current inventory to the market.I'm more surprised that there have been that many orders for the RF600 f/4 - or did they just not make many in the first case??
You joined and made your first post a sales pitch?Hi Everyone, I joined after lurking for months. Sorry in advance if dredging this up from 2021. This old thread is similar subject about R3 supply issues. This is my 1st post, and only here since I cannot find the September 17 2022, Canon Supply issue thread.
Evidently the Sept 17 thread it was a deleted thread with 100 comments?
Anyone interested in buying an R3 from stock?, I know of a supplier but outside the USA. Thanks.
