I downloaded this one last week and it doesn't have the 'copy' watermark on it. http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/slr_cameras/eos_5d_mark_iii#BrochuresAndManuals

GOT MY COPY !!! Thanks Peoria Camera Shop. First in Peoria ILPost pics or it didn't happen Also, was it a kit or body only?
those stores may have stock, but Canon USA will not allow stores to sell them until a certain date. same with Canon Australia.
I just called B&H to amend the shipping location. I spoke to two guys, both of whom towed the party line. No word on stock or shipping, but we will be emailed as and when. Lame.
Thanks for the update. I do hope they will update the status soon and send us some ETA emails.
Pretty sure in the next weeks that will be lots of unboxing threads/pics lol.
March 15th, Just got off the phone with BH. I am #118 in the cue, I ordered about 30 seconds after the pre-order page came up on their site. My order was termed a "backorder" but 5 minutes later the page was updated to "pre-order". Hope that helps with those trying to figure out where they stand in line at BH. I was told there were thousands of orders and after the initial shipment, they should be recieving 5-10 per day... YIKES!!!!
Got my initial order in very quickly RIGHT after announcement (backorder NOT pre-order screen) and I received a confirmation email AND an email with billing info, AND my CC was actually charged.
When I looked at my CC statement this week, I saw the original bill posted,BUT a few lines later, I also saw a "credit" reversing the original charge Tried to reach B&H to see what's up, but they are closed today. Have ordered a few other things from them in the past, but never a pre-order (backorder) item like this.
Should I be more worried than everyone else ??
The way for Canon to make a splash here is simple, price.The 24-105 is too much money to do that, I could see the 28-135 or something close to that price range (although I'd be stoked if it was the 24-105).
Price it at $2699, just like the 5d2 at release. Drop the 5D2 to $1999. And voila. Loads of sales.
The thing that doesn't add up about the rumors is the price. $3500 is a lot of coin. The inclusion of the 24-105 kit lens in that price makes a lot more sense. So I imagine that's the deal.
I have to say I'm a little disappointed. Canon still don't have a built-in eyepiece cover for the 5D line like the Nikon D700 - making you use that S___ty little rubber eyepiece cover that might be attached to your neck strap, if you use a neck strap.
First chink the armor.
ummm... are you serious? As a professional, I cant say i've ever in the last decade thought in the back of my mind... I wish my camera had an eyepiece cover... Never... Not once... I think it could be a nuisance more than anything else... when I want my camera ready to shoot, it better be ready to shoot... If any dust gets in the peice, I'll take a qtip and clean it... done.
Sounds like you need to go back to camera school - it's nothing to do with dust. It's for light leakage doing low-light long exposures. Star trails, Lee Big Stopper work especially. Read you camera manual about why it's useful, and in some cases required. Similarly it's why we use lens hoods. Not all light is good light.
