Sorry to repeat myself but does anybody have any indication that B&H handed any 1dx2s to UPS on Monday?

Thanks!

Nothing with my order yet, still shows the same as Sunday night. I called B&H and they said it will be here tomorrow but no indication from UPS to that effect

I got the same. In transit with an updated delivery date of tomorrow, May 4.

I would have gone Bryan's route if I didn't see that.

I've still got the spare battery on order with B&H. I'm still deciding if that remains...

Hm... no updates for me beyond sent to warehouse and that my CC's charged. We'll see how this pans out. Since I called them early in the morning, I'm assuming that if someone on staff was doing their jobs right, then it'd be packed and shipped tonight and I should have it in my grubby paws sometime tomorrow.

However, if I get a late e-mail saying it's just "picked-up" and that it won't be delivered until Thursday... then BH will be bumped down my list of vendors.

Congrats Erik! That is great! In less than 24 hours time, you will be holding your new Canon 1D X Mark II...

Everyone sounds really psyched.
I have a bit more wait. Delivery scheduled by 8pm Thursday.
I bought the 'package' including card and reader----does it come with the camera? Or do I fill out a form
and send it off?
My go the day after will be macro. Why not :)

It comes with the camera. The outer box says "Canon EOS-1DX Mark II Premium Kit", which contains the reader, the card and the retail box for the camera itself. Quite nicely done actually.

Speaking of which, I like the look of the box that has shipped in the USA. When I saw a few pics of the boxes that were shipped last week in some other countries, I did not care for the big red sticker plastered onto the box. The USA ones I've been seeing today look a lot more classy.

Geez...I sound like a box collector, huh? :oops:

My 1Dx sold in its original box with the unopened manuals, CDs, strap and cables.

I don't know if it adds value, but I think it's a nice touch and adds a bit of buyer interest when you sell it down the line.

The big red sticker was a bit of a turnoff.

This thread is going to be filled up with lots of really happy people tomorrow and Thursday as cameras begin getting delivered en masse. Picking up mine from UPS tomorrow morning. I've never been on the first wave of a new release before. It's exciting.

Sorry to hear about folks' troubles with B&H. Glad most of it seems to be getting resolved well.

I checked the site today and it said back order status- Top of my list is to get one. Dont like the pro media gear plate. Bottom hooks dig into the body. Learned that the hard way with my 1DMKIV

Oh ~ My ~ Goodness.

Following my dissatisfaction with B&H on some things with my early March pre-order, I cancelled my B&H order earlier today and took my money over to Adorama instead. Adorama was polite, gave me as much info as they could (to include my place in line), and they are even running a promotion for call-in orders that includes and extra battery, for free!

Well guess what...less than 10 hours after placing my pre-order with Adorama, my credit card was charged and my order has shipped! They must have gotten a shipment of 1DX2s in this afternoon. I can hardly believe it! (Tracking number in-hand.)

I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! It's not clear yet if it was shipped early enough this evening to get out tonight, but if it was, I will be greeting Big Brown at the door tomorrow morning between 11 am and noon.

Yippee!
Bryan

Congrats from another RI 1DX ll, sweet deal with the battery. B&H matched a Best Buy deal for me with a video light and other goodies worth over $300 for free
