Have to agree with you on that, I also ordered on 11/3 to be sure to get some as last year they ran out. I don't mind waiting but wish it was run like Amazon where you card isn't charged until the items are shipped.
Yes, mine has also been charged to my credit card which actually gives me hope that it has been shipped. We are all just a bunch of cranky photographers who want our Wetpixel t-shirts! hahaha
