Any news from your dealer re: the 1Ds 3 Longwatcher?
Yes, I thought I had mentioned it on POTN, but apparently not.
The rep had lied to the store previously.
The camera is expected in around mid-November, so due to my travel the earliest I can expect it in my hands is 16 Nov, even if it shows a touch early, but mid-November for the 1DsMkII was 23 Nov 2004 for me. Although the person I bought mine from got their's on or shortly after 17 Nov from what I understood. He had tried to game the system to be the first on his block, so ended up with 2 cameras and could really only afford one, so he hadn't even opened the box with mine in it, before selling to me. And there was some serious double checking on both sides to make sure we were both legit before that transaction took place.
So most likely date is actually the 14-16th.
Although with my luck it will be 01 Nov, just after my plane takes off.
