It has been well over a year since they were announced.
Since the new supertele's were announced, Japan was devastated by an earthquake and tsunami.
Two new camera bodies have been announced and one released by Canon.
We had storms locally, with golf ball size hail. Parts of the state were hit by an earthquake, which is unheard of in this part of the world. We had the worst drought since the great depression.
Allot of things have happened, and allot of time has passed.
The last news was that the lenses would be released in April, and April is almost gone.
Soon, we will have genetically engineered pigs that can fly, then maybe...just maybe.. we will see these lenses on the market.
