So I've been itching to get my hands on a t2i for some time now, and decided to puchase at Best Buy for the financing offers as well as the performance plan. I was approved for a $750 credit line on my BB card, so have to wait until payday next Friday to purchase. I stopped in to my local store last evening to check the inventory to make sure it would be in stock when I returned to puchase.
I service rep advised me they were currently out of stock, so I asked if she could tell me when they expected more to come in. She checked the inventory on the computer and advised that they have no order in for restocking them, and the closest store that had them was over 3 1/2 hours away! How could they not even have an order to restock? She told me my only option was to either drive out to a store that had them, or to order on BB.com which is currently on a 2-3 week backorder!
I was really hoping to have this camera for an event which is the weekend after I wanted to puchase. Any ideas?

I am also looking for this camera (bundle) for about 2-3 weeks now, been to bestbuy couple of times and I got the reply that the stock will arrive last Friday, but nothing happened till date. Now I have backordered it and still waiting...
I got an urgent assignment to finish and I am waiting for this one.
Out of frustration i even wrote to canon and they say they cannot commit a date and the manufacturing is in full swing!
If anyone gets a camera, please let know as its very urgent for me

I know Canon underestimated the potential demand for this camera, and has been playing catch up in trying to get more to retailers ever since the release date. I searched on BestBuy.com to see what stores in my area have this DSLR available, and it looks like most of the stores in my area have them now. If you already haven't gotten this camera I would suggest searching on BestBuy.com under Check Shipping and Availability to see if your local store has this camera in stock right now.
