Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye available for pre-order

A couple of days after it was reported "in the wild" in Canada, and now the Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM Fisheye Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens [$1,499] is now available for pre-order at B & H (there's no ship date quoted, though B & H now only charges your credit card when the product ships; though they do send through an authorization.)

I love wide-angle lenses, and would love to have one of these. Note that you only get 180 degree fish-eye if you have a full-sensor camera like the Canon 5D Mark II.
