Helen, do you still have the kits in stock? I noticed it looks like they're in stock on the product page, but in the cart it has a note saying they're in route to the warehouse.

Thanks!

Only 100% way is to call in to the sales team. As I now work exclusively from home I don't have access to the system which gives that info.

I just bought a body-only from Norman....went ground as I couldn't justify the overnight cost.

should i change my mind? ;)

Change your mind on Shipping? Overnight is only $30 for me (it was $65 from B&H - New York). That's like < 1% of the cost of this puppy - and will be less man-handled if on the ground for 7 days. IMHO

I ordered my Body only from Adorama on 3/9. My account online says Pending still but when I called the 800 number and typed in my order number, it says it was packed today and provided me a shipping number! Hoping I get the official shipped notice today!

If it's packed it should ship - plenty of time before the truck arrives!

It states on BHphoto's facebook that they are shipping out the first batch of 5DIII already. The second batch should be coming in next week.

Norman Camera from Michigan? That's my hometown store! I wanted to buy from them but sales tax would have killed it for me.

Yes ... and that's why I chose "THEM" ... because of the huge 9.5% state sales tax in California .. :cool: You might search this thread for a California store .. I thoght someone here mentioned 1 in southern California that had a few.

Ouch, and I thought our 6% sales tax here was high.

B&H shipped my order out today. Was a little slow on the preorder (March 2nd, 3am EST), but I knew they'd pull through. :cool:

karma?

lol, well, I cancelled my order after I made sure there were some in stock locally, and when I called I asked if he had an idea of when it would come or no and he said looks like my order would not go out until early to mid April as they had gotten plenty of orders but very little stock. I asked him if I could cancel the order and he said no problem.

that was precisely my issue from my order of 3/02, and showing BACKORDERED still. I just couldn't chance not having this thing by April 29th when we leave for Italy. Glad to have found Norman Camera. I really have been a loyal B&H customer - and had it not been this trip, I would have tried to be patient and just wait it out.

Did the same exact thing! My status was still backordered as of 12pm and I speculated that I did not make the first batch based on some posts here (my order # was 58xxx). Looks like Norman Camera is making many of us happy campers!
