Man I hope Amazon starts shipping today.

On another note, I called Midwest Photo Exchange again this morning and they said it will likely be the end of April / early May before they clear their pre-orders and actually have units to stock the shelves with.

Just chatted with Adorama. They only have a "few" of the KITS left - and was offered one if I wanted one. But I only want the BODY an they are totally out of them (of 600 !) He said they won't have any more Bodies for "another month" !! My B&H number is 641xx & still shows backordered ... ugh ... I may end up in Italy on April 29th with my 30D .. :-(

Picked one up yesterday after only a two day preorder! Went out last night and had a great time!

Bestbuy, J&R, and Canon Direct preorders have all been cancelled before they sent out.

Sharpness, and looking good with long exposures...

Bummer.. amazon still shows no status. I pre-ordered on march 2nd too! I put too much faith in amazon and used them because I had amazon prime.

I have never had any issue w/ B&H in my short 6 years experience with them, but as of late I'm not too impressed with their lack of information. Some of the user experiences posted here on the forums also makes me think twice as well...

The fact they are also closed for Passover (2 weeks) makes me less confident I'll get my order in a reasonable amount of time. Hence the reason I cancelled it and went with Adorama.

Yup, same here. I guess the saving grace here is that Amazon pre-orders are dropping like flies. I ordered on March 2nd but not until the evening, so hopefully I'm moving up in the queue.

It appears I violated the spamming rules in the marketplace when I decided to switch from auction to selling it on the forum by making another thread. That one was removed, so here's the link to the one that is working. https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1163523

Had a "late" (3 days ago) B&H order and given the indications here that it could be weeks before it shipped I went ahead and ordered a kit from Beach Camera instead since they claim they kits are still in stock. We will see how it goes, and I will cancel whichever doesn't ship first.

Got mine, slapped my 70-200 II on after setting the camera up and don't worry... This thing is SHARP. All the great detail we had in the 5D2, and this is just JPEG's... I turned NR to low and sharpening up in camera (as I always do).

Very happy so far...

So good to hear! Got my 70-200 II with me at work. Just waiting for the damn battery to charge.

Here's my new baby.

B&H received our first batch of EOS 5DMk III cameras and camera+lens kits today and we will ship them this afternoon. We expect our next delivery sometime next week.

We'll be closed Apr 6-14. One day more than a week. Passover ends 4/13 but the 14th is a Saturday and we close every Saturday anyway.
