So I get an email from Amazon regarding my 7D order and I get all excited thinking it may be a shipping notification, then I read the email and my jaw dropped:

"Hello from Amazon.com.

We're still trying to obtain the following item[s] you ordered on August 31 2009 (Order# XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX)

"Canon EOS 7D 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 3-inch LCD and 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Standard Zoom Lens"

Still want it? We'll keep on trying. To keep your order for this item open, please click the link below. Otherwise, we'll cancel your order on October 30 2009, if we haven't located it by then.

<link removed>

You'll still be able to cancel at any time before we ship it. If you want to cancel the item now, please click the link below:

<link removed>

If there are other items in your order, they'll be shipped according to the delivery estimates listed in the order details in "Your Account" (www.amazon.com/your-account).

By approving the new delivery estimate, you are letting us know that you still want the item(s) though they may arrive later than expected. If there are other items in your order, they will ship according to the delivery estimates listed in the order details in "Your Account" (http://www.amazon.com/your-account).

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this delay."

I ordered the camera about an hour after it was announced on 8/31 and this is the first time that I have heard from them since then. Not very encouraging. I am hoping this is just Amazon's way of clearing out pre-orders that others may no longer want.

Canon WITH lens kit

I dont remember where I read it, maybe just another forum rumor, but I had read a post claiming the 7d WITH lens would'nt start shipping till mid october. Since Im switching from Oly to Canon, I dont have any lenses yet, and need that kit setup. Anyone else have word on the kit?

Yeah no word from AMZN about my pre-order body with lens. I can't really do anything without the lens since it's my first still camera. Luckily I can be patient and wait a few weeks.

In the UK I'm still waiting on my pre-order with the 15-85mm lens from Jessops. If I'd ordered the body only then I'd probably already have the camera by now. They said I should receive it by mid next week (wc 5th Oct).

My retailer told me that they were expecting two variations of the kit with lens... one packaged with the EF 28-135mm lens, which is the kit version I had previously heard about, and the other packaged with the new EF-S 18-135mm lens, which makes perfect sense as a kit. However according to the press release for the new EF-S 18-135mm lens, it won't be available until later in October, so we can't expect that kit to reach the shelves until that new lens is ready.

Leaving up in the air the question of availability for the kit with the existing EF 28-135mm lens... my impression was that it would be another week or ten days or so from now until it starts shipping.

Hi Simon, without wishing to rub salt into your wounds, my Jessops body only, arrived on Monday. If it's any consolation, I haven't had a moment to try it yet...torture!

Still waiting for my 7D with 15-85mm lens to arrive from Jessops. The lens is apparently the problem as the body only and the body with 18-135mm lens is readily available in the UK. I just wish they could have sent out the body and then the lens when it eventually arrived. So much for pre-ordering...

Anybody know why a lot of typical electronic stores (Best Buy, Amazon, etc.) still show Canon 7D as a product that has not been released yet? Do companies like B&H, JR and other camera specialty stores get preferred distribution rights from Canon or something? Just a curious person waiting for the 7D to arrive. :) Thanks to anyone who knows something regarding this area.
