    UK Lens Delivery Problems.

    Can anyone tell me why the EF 70-300mm f4-5.6 appears to be as rare as rocking-horse dung? Is it so good that they are in short supply due to demand or is it so awful that they have had to re-design it? I have been trying to get one for my 350D since February and no one sems to have any.

    Maybe it's because Canon has found a fault with them

    We have been studying the symptoms of this phenomenon in order to determine its precise cause and to develop an appropriate remedy. We have now determined the cause and have developed the remedy.
