Sadly, Canon will make sure a good number of the first batch of Cameras sent out get to the youtubers first and foremost. That seems to be the way it worked out for the R3 and R5c. Tons of videos popped up on YT for those right after launch date and im already starting to see the R7 ones pop up while everyone else's is on "backorder"

Presumably they ran the numbers and concluded the cost of design, manufacture, and distribution was unlikely to yield much profit. I can't think of another likely explanation.
Also, they probably guess (rightly), that people buying this camera will not buy a grip.

The R7 is now distributed in smaller numbers at least in Europe and Sweden (where I live)...
I have been notified I will receive my preordered (May 24th) body tomorrow Friday July 1st.

Can't help you except to say that I'm in the same position. I emailed B&H and the CS reply was that they didn't know when they were getting "more". I ordered at 7:30AM EDST on introduction day.
Ordered mine around 10am EDT from the Canon Store (after placing orders with B&H and Adorama around 8:15). The order came in Wed or Thurs. I'm not sure because my daughter's family is visiting and accepted delivery. No one bothered to tell me!

I was anticipating the R3 released but passed on it due to the limited resolution. The R7 is less than what I wanted. I would have preferred either a stacked sensor or much faster read-out to control Rolling Shutter. Also, CFexpress support would be nice. I don't care about a BG. If it doesn't increase performance (speed, AF accuracy), then I don't need it. I've loved shooting with the R5 and don't requires the additional bulk.

Thus, between two cameras that left me wanting more, the R7 was the one that came close enough to bite on.

I think bodies are coming in faster than kits with lesnes.
