Finally, I am hearing reports that the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L II USM Lens
is shipping (with deliveries occurring in certain parts of the world).
According to dc.watch.impress.co.jp
, Canon will be releasing this lens on Sep 6th. Canon Japan
is warning of expected initial shortages of this lens. (thanks Kaz) Adorama
is accepting preorders.
