I placed my order on December 8th and was notified on Dec. 23rd that they were shipping me the camera and grip but that the extra battery I also ordered continued to be on back order.

It looks like the Adorama lead time is 3-4 weeks from the time they take the pre-order to the time the camera actually ships... They also seem to take pre-orders when they have been told by Canon what their order allocation looks like, so when they are available for pre-order that means that you have a definate slot for one of the cameras. While this sounds really slow, many other retailers are still trying to fill pre-orders taken, I was on two other pre-order lists that I got on much earlier than Adorama and Adorama was the first to actually get me a camera.

I think Adorama is getting more units than anyone else, even B&H, etc.

I will have to note that despite the fact I got a tracking number early on the 24th they didn't actually get the camera to UPS until mid morning today. I understand that it's the holidays and that they are busy but find it silly that a box that was packed and ready to go didn't get picked up on the 24th or the 26th, and now despite the fact I live only a 2 days away (in UPS shipping zones) they aren't saying they will deliver until Jan 2nd, argh! But I'm just happy I finally have one on a truck headed for my house...

When did you initally pre-order with Adorama? What was the time frame from pre-order to getting a shipping number? Curious if you were seeing the same lead times I was...

...UPS updated it's status and I get mine tomorrow, whoopie.

After reading this thread, I emailed a friend of mine that was looking for a 5DMII. They called Adorama this morning and scored. It shipped today!

Turns out Adorama received a shipment of 400 bodies last night. They sold over 300 within one hour of opening today...

I got mine yesterday... yeah Adorama hands down has gotten more bodies than anyone. I was on the wait list at a few other stores and they are still working back orders from Oct/Nov...

It does seem that Canon is shipping the MkII in much greater volume.

... now if they can just get those batteries in stock.
