Sold out everywhere

I've been looking to buy the T2i body (without kit lens) and it seems to be sold out everywhere. Anyone know an online retailer that has it in stock, or when one of the big retailers like amazon or adorama might restock it?

Thanks!

I got the same problem on Amazon/Pixmania (UK) and after a series of delays, had to buy the kit with the 18-55mm. It was that or wait another month!
The kit lens is now - brand new on ebay - waiting to be sold.

But the kit lens is such junk, wouldn't I end up taking a loss on it?

I ordered it through B&H and just waited till it came in- took a couple of weeks, but the sooner you place the order, the sooner you'll get it. Waiting until something has it in stock now will end up taking longer.

The kit lens debate continues- you may find it very handy for the $100 you spend on it.

The kit lens is OK, but for film-making its not nearly as nice as any prime lens or fixed f-stop zoom lens. The main issue with the kit lens for film-making is that it is not fixed f-stop, so when you zoom, the picture will darken (if your shutter speed and ISO are also fixed, but even if they are on automatic I would imagine there would be some visible picture adjustment happening when you zoom)

Yes and I think they say it: 3.5-5.6.
This is a film approach to HD not a video one.
At least when it comes to photographic terms.

Tip for NYC shoppers

I just did a hard target search of every camera store on Manhattan island and every place has this camera on back order 1-3 weeks, most of them closer to 3 weeks. Only one store I found had it in stock (sadly, with kit lens) and that was the Best Buy on 23rd Street. I got mine there today. They have about 5 more left. I predict they'll be gone soon.

i had just sold my canon 300d and 400d so i was in the market to upgrade my dslr and i had been waitng for the t2i...i got lucky as i stumbled into one last weekend...i had just read an article in usa today stating that the t2i was hard to find...i saw that b&h was out of stock...i am not the biggest fan of best buy but i was just wasting some time in their camera/video dept and they had a price display card for the t2i but the camera was not on display...i said to the guy it looks like you don't have that in stock...he opened the case and they had two sitting there...the dslr for stills is great and the video quality is amazing...

I'm so tempted to walk into Best Buy and grab the one they have. But its the kit and I dont really want to drop and extra $100 + sales tax when places like adorama have the body for $799 and no sales tax. I'd rather put that $130+ toward a 24-70 f/2.8, or a Zoom H4N.

Decisions, decisions...... :-)
