It's "unobtainium" for sure. Seems they can't make 'em fast enough for Canon shooters. Best chance is to get on an auto-notify list or pre-order.

I got tired of waiting myself for the 11-16 and ordered a Tamron 17-50/2.8 VC this morning. Hardly the same lens, but a good stop gap for me.

Tokina just can't keep up with the demand. I got mine used of Ebay.

It's definitely worth reserving one. The supplies come regularly, but sell out fast. Well worth the trouble though, the lens is super sharp.

I put myself on the BH notification list.....but I think half the 7D owners in the world have too....wish they would accept downpayment or something to assure I get one but I understand that they won't.

B & H is still the best bet. Just keep checking in with them - thats what I did 3 months ago, and suddenly they are instock .... and then out of stock!! It's like waiting beside an ice hole trying to catch a fish!

The Tamron 17-50mm is the sharpest of the three for a general purpose lens. The Tokina is nearly impossible to get. The 17-85mm Canon is a discontinued lens..replaced by the new 15-85mm.

The Canon 15-85 has variable aperture but is wider and longer than the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8. If you really need the ultra wide angle of the Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 and have found one in stock, then that's what you should get. Canon makes a 10-22 variable aperture in the same price range. My personal favorite is the Canon 17-55 f/2.8 IS.

Sigma also has a 10-20mm with a constant 3.5 aperture, it's an update of the 10-20/4-5.6. It seems to be more available, but it's more expensive than the Tokina.

I took a chance and bought it from Ebay. Granted no warranty but the canon mount is just much harder to find. As I write this I see three international sellers, which is even more of a risk.

I bought mine here a month ago:
Tokina AT-X AF 11-16mm 2.8 PRO DX Zoom Digital Camera Lens for Canon EOS - Canoga Camera
It was in stock at the time when NO ONE else had it! Looks like it is temporarily out now though. Plus the price is $599 and free shipping! VERY good experience ordering from them, complete with an associate calling me up (after online ordering) to verify everything. Highly recommend Canoga camera now!

I have used many of the "chinese" ebay sellers for accessories - step down rings, filters, etc and it's been fine. They offer free shipping usually but this does take 3 weeks or so. Some are Hong Kong some are mainland.
A friend ordered a Canon lens and it arrived no problem - in Japanese packaging. Check with paypal to see of you are covered by them first.
