Beast is backordered all over!

  1. Any idea why this old lens would be backordered at both B&H and Adorama? I'm looking to replace my stolen 28-70mm and it is just not available. I can't figure this one out. Neither place has any idea when shipments will be coming in.
  2. I wonder if the rumored 24-70 2.8 is taking its place.

  4. I believe they do production in batches. this occurred last year also. It will be available again soon I am fairly ccertain.
  5. Helix in Chicago has one.

    Not at my house it won't, lol.
  7. Many thanks to rbsmith who pointed me to Buydig for this lens. They had it in stock at a reasonable price.

    My new beast is being expressed shipped as we speak. Hopefully it will arrive before my next shoot on Friday.

    Thanks for the tip, Rex!!
