I saw on Canon Rumors that Adorama says they will be shipping out pre-orders today. The next question is where do you fit on the pre-order list list in relation to the number of cameras they received. I hope I am on the shipment list for today. I ordered on Sept. 17.
Another reason I am glad I pre-ordered locally. Not only am I guaranteed a copy, but it also worked out cheaper than ordering online, somehow. That, and I pick-up today; don't have to wait for shipping. Win-win-win!
