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.

So if anyone is still showing Backordered now, it's likely we didn't make the first batch?

That's how I felt yesterday with all the Adorama people getting their orders fulfilled. I admit it's silly to get so wrapped up in it but at the same time, it's nice to have something like this to look forward to at all.

lol, I ended up cancelling my pre-order 1019752700 from B&H after I walked out from our "local" camera store with a discounted 5D3/24-105 kit.
FYI, I had ordered on the 02nd at 00:20 and it was still showing backordered an hour ago when I cancelled.

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.

Likewise, I cancelled my pre-order (no. 58978, ordered @ 3/2 at 10:30am CST) after I saw your post about the late April/May delivery. Don't get me wrong, I still like B&H but it's frustrating w/ this waiting game, especially since others on the forum have already received their units.

my order JUST went from backordered to In stock, order sent to warehouse within the last 10 minutes. Today is the day they were supposed to ship them and it's the day they are shipping them.... Too bad about the tax. :confused:
