I was on the backorder list for Amazon and Crutchfield since last month, and just cancelled both. Ordered from Buydig.com Wednesday, and it arrived early this afternoon. Body only. What a camera!

Best time would be black Friday or cyber Monday, though I do not see this going down no more than $200.00 - $300.00 due to supply and demand (body only). Canon knows this will (have) sold at $3500.00 hence, it is not financially prudent for them to lower it than much to entice people to purchase it. when the 5dM4 arrives, only then you will see a "significant" discount.

I'd say try buydig.com. Quick and no problems getting mine from them. They shipped out the day after ordering. Last thing crutchfield told me this week was they had no idea when the next shipment would come in.

I checked Buydig. You got yours quick even though it says Pre order?

Hmm, they must have just changed that. When I ordered it said 'Ships in 1-2 days' and had nothing about a pre-order. It couldn't hurt to call I guess and see what they say about the wait. When I talked to them the guy said they had a bunch of units come in, and that 'he wasn't sure exactly why, but Canon seems to like them.'

I checked Adorama, and it doesn't look like they have anything listed in regard to a pre-order now...however I didn't see a estimated shipping time either. Maybe someone else can chime in on that.

Yeah it seems Adorama has then in stock. The only thing is that they're now closed for Passover.

Not sure where you're located, but you may also be able to find one at best buy for in store pickup as well.

HOT NEWS: We're hoping that everyone with a b/order with us is going to get theirs shipped before we break for Passover, on Friday.

Helen,
I just placed my order today for a 5d mk III. No indication camera is on backorder. Does that mean Adorama has them in stock, but will not ship unitl after the holidays, 4/16?

I'm looking for a store outside CO that has 5D3 bodies in stock. Any suggestions?

Sorry, I missed this (always safer to email me directly if you need an answer to a specific question).

I have no idea why they weren't showing as on b/order but the most likely explanation is that at the time you looked they were in the process of being unpacked.
Any that we had in stock before the holidays were definitely shipped before the holidays, but I can't say 'til we re-open what the current up-to-date stock position will be.
