I should have ordered though Adorama! Still says Backordered on B&H!

I am pretty sure the difference is in backoffice software agility, you'll get your confirmation by EOD today I am sure. But Adorama looks pretty awesome right about now :)

Congrats!! You'll be playing with it tomorrow? Mines won't come till Friday. Have fun with new toy :D

Thank you and thank you ADORAMA!!!!!!

I will ABSOLUTELY be playing with it and I'll probably be sleeping with it tomorrow night as well! :) Question is what lens will I use for the very first pic? 70-200 2.8 IS II or the 100L 2.8 Macro?

I am having it shipped to my work just to make sure I'm around to get it.

I have to admit, I had a lot of fun in this thread with everyone and met a few friends along the way. Can't wait till we all go through this again with the 5D MK IV. :)

If it goes out tomorrow, i'll still be happy. i ordered it overnight shipping, assuming that it would ship ON the 22nd and arrive on Friday before the weekend.

I like your optimism. :lol:

Considering they all probably get their shipments the same day, I just don't think they would let Adorama (a friendly competitor) one up them.

I cancelled my BH order after the CSR was rude on the phone yesterday when I asked about potential ETA 's. I went and grabbed it at my local shop. Normally BH is my camera gear outlet, but after that exchange, I may change my mind.

Adorama and B&H are a whopping 1.3 miles apart (google maps) so if Adorama got shipments I'm sure B&H did.

I used my nifty fifty (because I did not want to waste time getting the 24-105 off of my 30D). 5D3 and nifty fifty did not get along well :( It takes ages to focus. But with the 24-105 the focus is instant.

I called Amazon this morning to check status. They had no status to provide, but I mentioned that I was considering cancelling to purchase somewhere else that had already received them, and the rep at Amazon upgraded me to 1 day shipping. So there's that.

Really? That close. Then it's a guarantee they received their orders. But, the day is slowly coming to an end. It's 4:37 there right now. They better start hurry up and process those orders

Adorama was probably going to ship tomorrow but after dealing with me on the boards they probably said to management "I can't take another day of Christian or the other impatient members on PTON. Just ship them out already".
