Site seems to be stuck again. No change on the list of current active threads for two days.

I've noticed that also. Nothing has updated for two days. The list of recent posts hasn't changed and several of them give me the same message you received. Tried clearing my cache and history but nothing improved.

Ordered mine from BH this morning. Paid $2199 and BH emailed the rebate form at the same time as the just shipped email. $1899 after rebate. Plus 4% points.

In case you haven't seen this before, the autofocus guidebook for the 5d MKIII:

Lenses / Re: EF-M 11-22 f/4-5.6 IS STM Not Coming to North America?
« on: July 12, 2013, 10:23:28 AM »
I posted this yesterday in a different thread, but it applies more here I think:

======================================================================

I sent the following email to CanonUSA today:

I ordered an EOS M from B&H Photo this week that is on it's way. I just noticed that a new lens is available everywhere but the U.S. and notices from Canon that it will not be and won't be supported. 

This is making me nervous about the future of the M and whether I should just return this to B&H upon arrival. Does Canon intend to support and develop the M line in the U.S. or abandon it once the current stock is gone at the discounted prices?

Concerned in the U.S.

And received the following reply a couple of hours later:


Dear Robert Taylor:

Thank you for contacting Canon product support about the EOS M.

You are correct.  At this time, we do not have plans to sell the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM due to current market conditions.

As to the future of the EOS M line, I do not have any information to support one side or the other.  New products will be announced as they become available, should they be released.

As always, the best place to locate current information and press releases is on our newsroom website here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/about_canon/newsroom?pageKeyCode=20

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance with your EOS M. Thank you for choosing Canon.

Sincerely,

Andrew
Technical Support Representative

Special Note: Certain issues are very difficult to resolve via email. If your question remains unanswered after you have received this email, you may call our special toll-free number for email customers with unresolved issues and speak to a technician by dialing 1-866-261-9362, Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 midnight ET, and Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. ET (excluding holidays).

If you prefer to continue to communicate via email, reply to this message and we will respond as quickly as possible.


The statement about not releasing due to current market conditions does not inspire faith. I'll still keep it but I'm not expecting many new accessories.

EOS Bodies / 5D3 Firmware
« on: April 18, 2013, 08:26:55 AM »
I don't recall seeing this date anywhere before. It now shows in the link to the 5D3 firmware on CanonUSA's website that the firmware will be released on April 30th. It use to show late April like we have been hearing since back in October.

Look at the advertisement/link on the right side of this page:

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Nik Collection Bundle for $126.65
« on: March 29, 2013, 11:01:55 PM »
I'll join the low count recommenders.  Saw this on MacRumors a few days ago and jumped on it.  This compliments the Topaz bundle I already have. Never bought the Nik bundle before due to price.  So far I am impressed, especially with the area/spot application of modifying pics.

I bought the Hitech 85mm Graduated Neutral Density Kit 6 from B&H just to get started and do some experimenting. Have been very happy with them. Haven't noticed any color cast and they seem durable with reasonable care. Got a couple of Cokin adaptors and a holder to use them with.
