Two Months

Exactly two months ago I placed an order at amazon for the Canon T2i body, and they still haven’t been able to fill my order. It’s been a little frustrating, but I continue to wait it out. Good things come to those who wait, right?

I think Canon underestimated how popular this camera would be with everyone.  I’ve seen it consistently sold out at a lot of the other big websites like B&H and J&R; they can’t keep the thing in stock.  People are having better luck going into brick and mortar places like Best Buy and picking up the entire kit for $900 plus tax. And sure, I could buy the body from another vendor for $200-$300 over its retail price, but I’m not. That’s money that can be used on accessories or lenses down the road, and since I need to be frugal, I also need to be patient. Amazon has one of the lowest prices for the body ($799) plus a gift certificate I used knocks the price down even further.

So yeah, two months. Though I’m not sure I can wait another month for them to finally get it in. At least I’ll be ready for it with accessories in hand.
