Canon store shows backordered now. Amazon.com has been showing them as ‘in stock soon’ for the past couple of days. I ordered one, mine shows as preparing to ship with an expected arrival 8 days from now.

Canon says "in stock" now.
I see that now, and have on a few occasions previously. Try adding it to a shopping cart, then view the cart. Does it still show in stock? Not for me.

Since the Canon store seems to be getting more in stock lately, I'm hoping there is light at the end of the supply chain tunnel. Mine are on backorder from B&H and while it's temping to cancel and order from Canon, B&H gave me a discount since I ordered R5s and extenders at the same time and used their card to rebate the sales tax. I've waited this long, I'll just wait it out.

Update. I just checked my B&H order and they are now saying "in progress" with delivery estimated 8/23. Fingers crossed.

Good luck and hope your order goes through. I was one of the lucky ones that was able to get one last fall. The R5 with the 100-500 mm is my favorite lightweight wildlife setup.

Update #2 -- B&H has now marked the lenses as shipped and added the tracking number. Maybe supply chain issues may finally be ending.

I hope so. Several RF lenses show as ‘in stock soon’ on Amazon.

I also hope this means early, decent R3 availability.
