Got my body only order from B&H first thing this morning.  Sixth digit is a 3.  I feel like I just got my Red Ryder BB gun!  Looking forward to unpacking it, charging the battery, setting it up and trying it out over the weekend.  I have a definite use for it late next week.

scotta, what date did you order your body?

Old Shooter - have you tried any services like http://www.shipitapo.com before?

Thanks PhotoNoob! No, I've never used their services before. B&H and Newegg have always been my go to stores. But after nearly a month of waiting, I would like to jump on the first "In-Stock" I can find! They aren't as expensive as I thought they would be!

Aargh! They won't ship APO! It's either B&H or Newegg now...

Ordered a body from B&H on 04/18. Waited. Waited. Never received any updates from their sales department or customer service.

Saw the body for $3445 on the AAFES (miltary PX) website IN-STOCK! Jumped on it and got a confirmation email that the body would ship 05/12!

Cancelled my order with B&H so I wouldn't end up owning two bodies.

Tracked my order on AAFES today and it says backordered until 06/15! "Oops! We're sorry! Our mistake!"

OH...MY...GOD... :o :( >:( >:( >:(

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5dM3 dual card write speed results

Very interesting! Your results agree with Rob Galbraith's!

http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/camera_wb_multi_page.asp?cid=6007-12452

Basically, the fastest CF cards will write 4x faster than the fastest SD cards...

If you want to maximize your burst rate, Lexar 1000x is the way to go!

Save your money on the SD card; even the Extreme Pro's can't hit 20MB/s on the 5DIII...

Wonder how this would have worked out if Canon had enabled UHS-1 on the SD slot?

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Nikon D600

Nikon's pushing hard.  Gotta love competition!  Now if they could only deliver their products :)  I look around quite a bit on NR and there are quite a few people upset about not receiving d800s yet.
By the way, I think the only reason to why there are so many 5D3's in stock is because most 5D2 owners has decided to keep their camera.

In stock? Where? My order with B&H is back-ordered, and they are still trying to fill orders from March from what I hear...

If you're going with a crop sensor; consider the 17-55 f/2.8 EF-S lens.  People that own them swear they are near "L" quality.  It would give you a 27mm-88mm range of coverage.  Wide enough for some landscapes but long enough for some nice portraiture...
