    I visited two outlets in the UK for Canon, Jessops and Jacobs. Both are out
    os 5D Mk.II gigital cameras. The former informed me that they were on their
    way from Canada and are now past their delivery date. The latter informed
    me that she had no idea when they would be in suggested I look at what
    they had in stock.

    I also looked on line and "out of stock" signs were all over the place.

    Can anyone throw some light on this situation?

    Canon uses national allocation in distribution. Sometimes Canada gets Canon
    product before the USA as it's a smaller market. This can often be a bonus
    for Canadian dealers who do on-line sales, as when a new product is releases
    Canada often has 2 to 4 weeks lead time over the USA. I suspect the EU has a
    similar practice, maybe the European allocation is for Belgium at this time.
