Emailed local shop. Didn't hear about that date he says.... But I dont 100% trust them.

If best buy gets on the 30th, I'll buy there.

the original 7d was released sooner than it's expected date too.

Adorama says the first shipment will be in November 2014, not Nov 28, 2014 from earlier. They are also shipping the camera via next day air.

Next day air is good. I think I'm doing in-store pickup. Need a new phone when I drive to town. It's an hour drive off the mountain so a couple birds with one stone.

Same with Canon. Who knows how long it takes to update data on large sites? Could be some vendors are getting an early start.

.....and I really doubt BestBuy has a hand up on the 'big' houses when it comes to getting the first shipment; e.g. B&H and Adorama just havent had time ~holiday for them~ to update.

This also lends credence to my comments that all these pre-production models are really production models (other threads were speculating otherwise). Canon released a new version of DPP on 9/29 for the 7D2. This means that production most likely started somewhere close to that date, and a month to get enough pallets filled and shipped out seems logical.

A coworker ordered an SX60HS, and it was slated for release late October, but they received it yesterday, and all of a sudden, all sites now have it, where they used to show a preorder status and 10/20 for release. Canon probably puts a very conservative release date on the table to give them pad to fix any last minute items, else they can ship early.

Not to be a debbie downer but if BH, Adorama, Amazon, Canon say one thing, and Best Buy says another I know who I'm believing.
