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. :)

Well, all I can say is I am passing on what my local store told me and supposedly I currently #1 or 2 on the regional reps list to get a Canon, but then the rep has lied before. Also given that not all reps even got the first batch of 1DsMkII, it is quite possible this will happen again and the rep won't have one for the store until a later batch. I am however #1 on the store's list and they have never lied to me. So when they get the camera in, I will be called shortly there after.

And I would expect Photographers who work for Canon to be the first on the block to get the new cameras far in advance of everyone else. But at least I am on an even keel with everyone else who is not a Canon Employee, Reviewer, or Famous person in one form or another. In other words I am on the list to get one when Canon does their public release.

I can live with that.

I believe that is true, that is why I think the release for everywhere else may be a little later than expected. However, I have asked a good friend of mine to see if he can get an expected date for me, instead of a round about kind of answer.

Did you beat me by getting on the local camera shop lists before I got on? I wasn't first. I asked to get on before there was a list and couldn't get on and then when there was a list I was 2nd or 3rd (Peace & Southeast). Of course I'm on B&H's list too, but haven't put myself on any other National lists.

I am wondering whether the 1D MIII problem is affecting the release date of the 1dS?
