Distraught


Argh! Canon has extreme supply problems with their new EF-S 55-250mm IS lens, so the one I ordered ages ago (and already paid for, goddammit) still hasn't arrived, and probably won't before next year!

I can't understand why they don't produce enough of a product they must have known would be immensely popular. Well, actually I can, because everyone who wants one is going to get one anyway, because they can't just order a Nikon lens to go with their Canon DSLR. So they refuse to take the (small IMHO) risk of producing too many lenses, because the sheep, ah, customers, will wait. And buy. Stupid lock-in marketing, there ought to be a law against it.
