Just talked to B&H and the package delivered last night was not the one ordered. Now, I need to go home and see just what is in the box that came last night. With my luck it will be that 100mm 2.8L IS Macro lens my wife wants and if she see it in the house it not leaving.

You wouldn't be that lucky would you?

Just check the box and it wasn't even from B&H. My wife is the one that wants the 100mm macro lens. Would like to have that lens also, just don't want to pay for it.

Back when I had my Canon 40D, I bought the 60mm Canon macro and the images were razor sharp. Awesome lens.

Bought a Canon 60mm macro for the wife last May, she didn't care for the lens. She wants her own "L" lens with IS and she usually gets what she wants.

I believe they all get what they want. "It's my lens and I want it now"!

B&H may promise, but UPS may not deliver. I am expecting the delivery of a 3 day shipping item, that B&H promised for 12/21. But UPS got it stuck in NY, an extra day; "Merry Christmas".

Is a pretty busy time for UPS. We were suppose to get a package yesterday from our daughter and it never showed up. I ordered a lens from B&H on Monday and I don't expect to get that any sooner than Saturday. My lens has been in Groveport, OH for two days.

Guys, you are not making me feel very confident about my B&H order showing up today as promised. I don't want to be sitting by the Christmas tree watching the wife open an IOU from me for a present. She will be very unhappy and I will end up giving her Christmas present late, which means I will have to get her a make up gift too. I really don't want to buy that Canon 100mm 2.8L IS lens just yet.

Calicajun, didn't you ever hear of "Christmas in July"?
