2 left in stock here (at the time of this post anyway). ;-)

Search for Canon 55-250mm at amazon.co.uk

do we know why this is? is the man making them on holiday this month?

(by the way, im pretty good at internet buying ;-) google is my friend

Yes still says 2 in stock, but at about £60 over the average internet price, i can hang on a week or two lol, and see if it comes back in stock generally.

Love to hear the offical word from canon as to why this is happening, and when stocks will be back up.

Got mine from MicroGlobe, but they are showing a 1 - 3 week delivery!



Try ring these - they are letting me go through to order without telling me its out of stock so maybe......

simon
didnt check stock levels here in canada but here the 55-250 IS lens is going for 300-400 cdn dollars and maybe even cheaper on demo or used
try
HENRYS.COM or CA
VISTEK.COM or C

both are very reputable stores and very helpful and in fact may offer worldwide warranty
try emailing or if your at work then a quick company paid phone call
be warned its not the sharpest or greatest lens but it does cover a wide zoom length
and the key factor is IS which works pretty darn good on my little18-55mm IS lens kit

in fact if you have the 18-55mm then the 55-250 would be a good complement lens
the reviews for the lens are very mixed
but all that really does matter is that you are happy with your pix
i just read an article that TAMRON has introduced a 17or18mm-270mm 'stabilized' but no hint of price, dunno how long you wanna wait, but that would be the almost perfect stay on lens since there is no perfect stay on lens
good luck
pete
