Over the better part of the past year B&H has been really bad on getting stock. I ended up canceling items I pre-ordered from them (ie: GFX 100S, S5, etc.) as I found them elsewhere a lot faster.


I've been finding the same thing, particularly since the R5 launch. We kept track of it back then, and Adorama was the place to order and get it the fastest... https://camnostic.com/2020/08/adorama-shippiest-seller-of-r5-pre-orders/

This remained true with subsequent RF-related launches.

But my Adorama order of the 100mm Macro is still back-ordered, even though I bought within seconds of launch. Sounds like Canon may have de-prioritized the two big internet retailers for some reason, although this is both speculative and anecdotal.

Very eager to get the RF 100, especially as my wife has stolen my EF 100 L. Thought I was clever getting her into photography. Think again.

Since 2020 I've preordered 3 systems of bodies and lenses. Fuji, Sony, Canon from BH. I got every single thing on day 1 including the R5, A1, 100-500, all the harder to get items. The only thing I did not get on day one is the 100 macro which is suppose to ship tonight but so far nada.

But it gave you a reason to buy the RF version!

Sounds like a nice track record so far! Unfortunately items are getting increasingly harder to find, Good luck getting the 100mm macro. I love using it so far and I am sure you will too.

Similar situation here in the Netherlands, my preorder that I put in a few minutes after it went live at the #2 online retailer didn't get picked for the first batch. But store.canon.nl suddenly showed to have stock late at night and I ordered it. Two days later UPS dropped it off. I like it very much, it behaves like a much closer focussing RF100-500 and as a bonus, my copy is sharper than my EF100L!

My order went from "due to begin shipping on 7/8" to backordered. I contacted them and asked what gives? I had my order in within minutes of being announced on 4/14. The guy told me they did not receive any RF 100's and were told they'd receive them next week on 7/16.


Got an email from B&H this afternoon, my RF 100 shipped today, FedEx delivery tomorrow.

If someone doesn't use Canon DSLRs, and uses RF mount cameras then it makes sense to get native lenses for the system one is using. The adapter can add a point of vulnerability by adding another layer of electrical contacts between the camera and lens..


Lack of weather sealing in an EF to RF adapter would also seem important to some photographers.

Well, i broke down and added an R6, and of course i also ordered the RF 100 mm USM Macro IS lens, while a little pricey, the extra 1.4 magnification being the driving reason. The R6 has landed, but Adorama is telling me i MIGHT get the lens before years end 😢. Only consolation is my current EF 100 Macro IS works well with the darned adapter!

Bah humbugÖ Come on Canon!

The Canon EF to RF adapters are all weather sealed.

Thanks

Good news .. somehow I never noticed. Makes me feel like I got a litter extra for my investment now. Hadn't really looked closely enough before to notice. After reading your reply, I grabbed my control ring adapter for a close look, and the gasket is certainly there.

My shop has the 100mm in stock and we don't charge tax to IL. Free shipping too. Shoot me a message if you're interested and can cancel your Adorama order.

Best,
Jim

Just got my RF 100mm L IS Macro from Amazon. Said they had one in stock with more on the way. Ordered Wednesday, got it Friday.

Lighter than I thought and it takes a 67mm filter (Naturally I have a 77, a 58, and a 52 sitting around) I will put a filter on this as the front element is really close to the front and the first time I used it I actually poked my subject while trying to see how close i could get. Glad it wasn't a rock. It seems to hunt a lot when you are at the closest focus point, and it hunts in low light (more than my other RFs) when not being used for macro. Works nice as a portrait lens too. Haven't fooled with the SA yet.

Watch out ... I had similar with the 24-105, hence ending with two of that range, and now my wife does not care for it - rather use a P&S for that range, since now in addition to the 100macro she likes the 100-400 too ( she sets a limit of 3 lenses max to carry) - my 16-35 f/4 was also abducted
That's the result of bringing her into the hobby - on the bright side, I now have potentially 3 extra lenses that I don't have to carry when we go out shoot together

How long are people waiting for their backordered RF 400 f/2.8? I would rather not pay the tax, and wait till my camera shop gets one. It has been over two months now, not that Iím complaining.
