Received my 5DII and 60D (wife's) today. 5DII looks brand new and has a shutter count of 99 per EOSCount, including 2 from me before connecting it. Very happy with it so far.

Won't open the 60D until I get home from work.

Now to read the manual...

That is awesome! Most "new cars" have about that before you get the keys.

Seems they have popped back in stock. Just placed my order for a 5D MII and 50mm 1.8 - I finally have a FF DSLR :)

For 1,562.39 including tax and shipping for both lens and camera it was a heck of a deal. If you buy an accessory they upgrade you to free 2 day shipping.

A lot of good stuff is in right now.

When I called earlier today to order, the rep (Barbara, I think she said her name was) was laughing about how quickly things have been coming in and out lately. She said that they (the reps) know that people have been watching like hawks, because it will be quiet, quiet, quiet, and then everything suddenly EXPLODES with calls, because someone saw they had the 5Dii back in stock, or some of the L lenses, etc.

I got a 5D MKII refurb a couple of weeks ago and the shutter count was almost 17,000. The top LCD had some small scratches, the tripod mount area was scuffed and the battery compartment/grip was loose. I called Canon and they transferred me to the Technical Support department to document my issues. When I mentioned the shutter count, the technician almost laughed and told me that it wasn't a big deal and that the 5D shutters are rated up to 150,000 actuations. It took me several days with lots of refreshing on the Canon page, but finally 5D stock came in (and stayed in stock during the phone call) and I could exchange the camera. I just got the exchange and it looks great. Looks like new and only 20 actuations. I did an informal survey of shutter counts from 40 refurbs as reported in a Slickdeals thread and figured out the average was ~800 actuations with a high of 3200 (not counting mine). I would've been fine with the camera if it was in better shape and less than 5000 actuations.

This is a follow up to a CLP purchase I made in March. I purchased a 7D and 24-70 2.8L lens for a combined total of $1982.56, not counting tax. Very good deal, but there was one hiccup. After a week of shooting I started to notice some problems with the images: CA in the center of field even when stopped down, and some softness across the whole frame for many pictures. It just did not look right for an L quality lens. I took my rig to a local camera shop and took some identical pictures with my 24-70 and theirs, and could tell a difference when I examined the results at home. Worried about the short warranty on my refurb lens, I sent it in right away, and sure enough Canon confirmed the problem and replaced the 2nd group and a few other parts. Overall the warranty process went very smoothly and only cost me shipping one way, took about two weeks total, so it was not too painful. I am not sure the lens problem had anything to do with it being a refurb, but I thought the folks here might want to know my experience. Assuming the lens is really better (I have yet to test it), I am still happy with my CLP purchase.

Everyone's all hot and bothered by the 5D Mark II...
I'm still completely shocked that I was actually able to grab the 50D! :-P

If you sell the 28-135 that comes with it, you can have a ridiculously good camera at a very, very low price. ^_^

Me too, Ryan. You are only the 2nd person who has posted anything on getting the 50D over the past few months--always out of stock

I was told that it's body + lens, or body + speedlite, or all three, for the free 2nd day shipping. I.E. if you buy a body and a lens hood or something, that doesn't count, but that's just what the rep I ordered from said.
