Why is my order still "Being Prepared for Shipping"?

Hi, just wondering, on Thursday (Aug 5) I ordered the pancake DA40mm ltd lens, but according to the tracking on the website, it's still being prepared for shipping. The last time I ordered from B&H, I also ordered on a Thursday (or was it a Wednesday), and it arrived 2-3 days later, on Saturday (obviously it wasn't available for delivery till the next week), but still. Or is the online tracker just off and it's somewhere en route?

Also, just reread the confirmation email email:
"Tracking #1: 1ZE6W3116754351137
Shipping Method: UPS EXPEDITED
Scheduled Arrival Date: 08/17/10"

Unless it wasn't in stock (even though the site said it was) and you're awaiting a shipment from pentax or whatever, why is the scheduled arrival date a good 2 weeks after the order, when I paid for 2-4 days shipping (which worked out fine last time)? =/ Also, that tracking number doesn't work; UPS doesn't recognize it.

This might have something to do with it:

If he ordered it on the same date as he posted "looks like it is back in stock", we ordered ours on the same date. His arrives a good 6 days earlier, though, and it's kinda like LBA frustration, except I've already bought it
