this seems to be a very popular lens according to alot of websites, including Canon's websites. I'm sure alot of customer would like to purchase this from Bestbuy. I went into a Bestbuy recently and spoke to one of the sales associates in the camera dept and told him some customers like myself would rather buy from Bestbuy since you can walk into a store when you have any issues, especially if you're gonna buy the extended warranty. So hopefully we will see these lens in the store or online. Hopefully

This is a very nice lens, and unless you need f/2.8 this is the best walk around lens for full frame sensor cameras. If memory serves me right we did carry this lens at one time on BestBuy.com. I will try to find out if we plan on carrying this lens in the future, and post back once I know either way.
It is possible that our stores could special order this lens, and to find out just go to your local Best Buy® (or call them) and ask if they can place a special order with the manufacturer for this lens.
Hope this helps!

I am also interested in this lens. i tried calling three different stores and they all told me it is NOT possible to special order the lens direct from the manufacturer. This is very dissapointing. I saved up my points on a Chase Visa card about $3500 worth enough for this lens and the Canon HF-S21 and best buy does not carry either one. Come on best buy, help us out with the quailty stuff!!!!!
