They are back in stock at Canoga Camera again. Pre-ordered on early in last week and it shipped out a few days later. Luck timing? Thanks to the prior poster on the Canoga Camera lead!!! Had been searching all over.

Well, I ordered on from Conoga Camera earlier today, after I saw John Richard's post. I felt good ordering but was a tiny bit suspicious about how they became avialable to them and not to other online camera store sites. I will keep everyone posted.

I wouldn't worry - Canoga Camera has been around a long time and they are a physical brick and mortar store with a good rep.

Just tracked my order and it will be delivered this morning some time.

I think the fact that they move a lot of volume for Tokina makes them a priority distributor?

The nice thing is that I almost gave up and fell for those guys holding their small stock and selling at premium prices. Canoga continues to sell at the manufacturer's suggested price.

Glad it worked out for you John. Hope it does for you too Steve. I'm not sure how they are getting them but I can say mine was brand new and works GREAT!

They are sold out again. I have a simple theory on how Canoga Camera got the Tokina 11-16's before others (like B&H and Adorama). Its because the US distribution center for Tokina lenses is located in California and so is Canoga. Maybe thats why and maybe not but I got my order in before they showed sold out again so maybe I'm in luck. Thanks again for the tip Paul Frederick and John Richard.

Conoga Camera updated my order status to "Shipped" with a UPS tracking number. If you think that I am happy....you are correct.
