Apparently B&H received a shipment from Canon - this would be a good time to check any other previously OOS Canon product (there have been many) you are looking for.

Sold out: And while on the in-stock topic, B&H also has the still-hard-to-get-9-months-later Canon EOS 5D Mark II Body and 24-105mm IS L Lens Kit versions in stock.

 
Gone: Act immediately: B&H has the awesome new Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5 L II Lens in stock. These have been lasting for only a few minutes.

 
Gone in about 5 minutes: Act immediately: B&H has the Canon TS-E 17mm f/4 L Lens in stock.

Stuff for sale ... These offers are available within the cUSA. To be fair to everyone, all items will remain for sale until I receive a firm "I'll take it" under agreed-upon conditions. I will accept Paypal if shipping to the verified address. Email me if you are interested in purchasing.

Canon TS-E 24mm L Lens - $875 shipped
This is the original version of this lens. It is like new except for a tiny fleck of paint missing near the serial number (smaller than the center of an 0 in that number). Includes hood (couple of very small rub marks), pouch and manual (no box).

Sold: Canon 580EX II Speedlites - $325 shipped
I have three of these to sell (had 9 for a project - no longer need this many). Comes in box with pouch, mini stand and manual. These might have a tiny bit of tape residue, but otherwise they are in excellent condition - no dents or scrathes of any significance.

PowerShot SX20 IS
PowerShot SX120 IS
PowerShot SD980
PowerShot SD940

Here is the Canon Press Release.
