Purchased mine on May 8th, so it sounds like I might be one of the lucky ones.

Haha, I ordered mine Apr 29th and it still hasn't come. Although there are others that ordered after me that shipped.

Ordered mine on May 1 and I too am without my kit, however June 30 is looking like the real deal.

Ordered a 100mm F2.8 through aafes who said expect delivery in August and they shipped the Lens ex Japan on June 23, so maybe stuff is finally getting manufactured.

Spoke with Brainstorm this morning. She stated my camera/lens should be shipping within two business days and I will receive an email confirmation. Looks like they finally received the shipment.

That's what they've always said just to get you off the phone. Did your card get charged yet??

Not sure if the card got charged yet. At work, and can't check the balance yet. This is actually the first time I have called them.

As of tonight, credit card not charged. Guess the June 30th arrival date is not correct, or I'm farther down the list to receive the first shipment.

Fifty-Eight (58) days later I finally have a tracking number for my new 5D II from Continental/Brainstorm Logistics. Had to call them though. Never received an email like they said I would get.

Hopefully, the rest of you will be getting good news also.

One thing that I needed to add. Is Continental One pass/Brainstorm an authorized Canon dealer? Here is a link to all the updated Canon Authorized dealer and I don't see either Continental or Brainstorm on the list. http://usa.canon.com …anonAuthorizedD​ealers.pdf (external link)

If they are not an authorized dealer, the warranty won't be honor unless there is something I don't know about.

Warranty is good....there was a post about it on this thread. And I think Canon stated they would honor the warranty.
