    Look carefully -- it's a coffee thermos! If the darn thing didn't cost $20 to ship (apparently in almost any quantity) I'd get one in an instant! Then again, I may anyway...:D

    Purchase linky

    Hmm, just down the road from me, maybe I'll swing by this weekend and see if they have any in stock.

    Ha. I rent from Vistek all the time; they're about a 20min walk from my office. I'm definitely going to get one of these!

    If I shot Canon, and drank coffee, I'd be all over this :). I think it's a pretty sweet idea.

    i shoot canon, but i don't drink coffee..........hot chocolate? :D

    i actually put it in the cart, and it said "out of stock" but underneath it said, available 4/16/10..but it still let me proceed to check out...

    weird.

    and if i wanted one, it would run me about 64 bucks including shipping, shipping is 30bucks from Canada. oh well, hopefully they actually make it and release in US!

    Shipping alone was $40 for me.. No thanks! I'd take one for $35 with shipping though.

    I thought this was a really great idea and I was planning on buying one. Hopefully someone will make these mugs available in the US as well.

    Just ordered mine.. $43 out the door! I figure that if I decide I don't want it, I can easily eBay/POTN/Marketplace it for more as it is a promotional item that is very hard to sell.

    Still waiting to hear about my order for two mugs. Ironically, it was going to be a surprise gift for my brother, who is the photography buff in the family, but HE took advantage of the deal directly from Canon where you got a free mug with an order of $200 or more. So he's had his mug for months (and is pleased as punch with it) while I'm still waiting to see if I'll even still be getting mine.

    I want one too, but it looks pretty expensive for a novelty thermos.
    These were originally made for Canon to give to their CPS members at the Vancouver Winter Olympics earlier this year and thus were produced in small quantity.

    Obviously the story and pics hit the internet pretty quick and Canon have now been inundated with requests to produce them for general sale. We can only hope that they make them due to popular demand and at a reasonable price.
