1. Anyone been able to purchase a grip for the 5D Mark III? I know the big retailers don't stock them yet, but I find smaller/local shops have items/have them earlier than others sometimes.

2. Also, B&H's "coming soon" price is $349 while everywhere else I've seen it advertised at a whopping $490.

Any insight on either topic is appreciated.

I looked at the 5D3 over here last week and told no grip was available yet and the sale guy could not give me a date on when they would hit the market. Not much help I know.

I heard from Canon that it would be out some time at the end of April. Most retailers have the grip priced at $490 but once's there's a release date the prices will come down. I pre ordered mine at Amazon

Man this same question comes up every other day now it seems... I have answered like four in the last week or so! :D

It is not out yet... Mid or End of April.

Price will be $349... MSRP is the $490 or whatever. Adorama and B&H both at $349 for preorder.

I'm curious of when the grip is available, it just feels weird without it.

It would be funny if the copies beat the OEM ones to market.

like others have said, Canon is not even shipping it until the end of April, you aren't going to find it anywhere early.

Deciding on whether to get the grip or GPS unit instead.The grip doesn't get you anything other than dual batteries and portrait shooting comfort right?

I guess that depends on how big your hands are and your style of shooting, among other things. I've been shooting exclusively with a gripped 50D w/ hand strap for the past 2 years and my hand is noticeably sore after using my 5D3, regardless of what orientation I'm shooting. For me, the grip makes an enormous difference.

I "miss" the grip badly, my MK II had a grip and my "other" body is a 1D MK IV so this MK III feels so small. Looking forward to getting the grip! I know - end of April :rolleyes:
