I sold my 1Ds II last week....like the day before Canon acknowledged the light leak issue. I could care less about the issue at the moment. I was hoping to pick up the 5D MKIII kit and all would be golden, well stock isn't being replenished and it was pretty hard to locate one...

I called Adorama this am and the tech said they had a few so I ask that is was new and I let him upsell me on a battery and would have on a 16 mem card but he didn't try...

I am guessing Adorama is ok or it would be plastered all over the place to stay away?

It's just a bit of change for a camera for me and I am a bit nervous!

Adorama and B&H are great. They've taken mucho $'s from me. I've been VERY satisfied.

Adroama and B&H are top of the line stores... Buy with confidence from either.

Adorama and B&H will take care of you.

Abe's of Maine WILL call you to try and sell you a bunch of other crap. You can just tell them no, but it took an extra day to ship my order because they had to "speak with me to confirm my order." No quality issues with them, but that irritated me.

Adorama is great but it indicates "out of stock" on the 5Dmk3

The first time that happened to me was the last time I ordered from them. Indeed stick with Adorama or B&H.

Adorama or B&H! The last two years I have ordered more from Adorama but both are top notch. You have possibly saved yourself a great deal of trouble by asking ahead of time! It is sad to see so many be lured in by "Used Car" type camera businesses!
Happy Shopping!

Either Adorama or BH are great as others state. I have 5d3 being delivered tomorrow from Adorama. I'm fairly excited to get on this thing.
