EOS Bodies / Re: 5DIII pre-order thread
« on: March 21, 2012, 07:05:58 PM »
Kenmore seems to have come through !! Just got the tracking number from them, should be with me within 2 days. Called up BH to cancel pre-order, they still dont have a clue when they will get stock or push them out. I ordered on the 6th so wasn't hoping on making into the first cut of people. Now I breathe a little more easier and relax while the camera makes it way to me. Excellent service at Kenmore. Will post again when I have it with me. All the best to the others !!  the wallet just feels lighter all of a sudden :P

Kenmore Camera is great, I live about 15 miles from them and buy most of my stuff there.  Nice group and very helpful.

B&H just charged me in full for my 5dIII kit.   :D Which means I have to pay  :'( But I get my 5DIII ;D

I have 2 day shipping, so maybe, just maybe, they will ship so I receive on the 22nd. Apple is famous for that.

mind sharing your order number except for the last two digits to give folks something to compare theirs to?

It's like 404 pages, why would you want to print that?  If you buy the camera you'll get the official manual, I loaded it on my iPhone so I'll always have it for reference when I'm out and about.

Just looked at the website for the shop he mentioned, they don't list any 5D's let alone the MIII so I think you may be right.

I downloaded this one last week and it doesn't have the 'copy' watermark on it.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5D Mark III in Stock - BestBuy $ B&H???

those stores may have stock, but Canon USA will not allow stores to sell them until a certain date. same with Canon Australia.

chatted with a B&H rep the other day and they said they will start shipping as soon as they came in, this was in response to me asking if they had to wait until 3-22.

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.

They really aren't able to do that because they don't know how many they will be getting in each shipment.  However I wish they would tell us where we are on the list so we have at least some idea.  I got my order in 3-1 after it was announced (I'm in Seattle), about 30 minutes after I got my confirmation email I got their mass email with the pre-order links to their site so at least I'm ahead of all those folks.

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!!!!

Sounds like I'm pretty close to you in line, it read "backordered" as well.  Saw a link on the forum I was on and placed my order, about 30 minutes I got B&H's mass email with links to pre-order it.  My confirmation email came in at 9:17pm west coast time.

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 ??

Same situation as you (but I haven't checked my cc statement regarding the credit), I think B&H ran an authorization to see if the funds were there and your card will actually be billed once it ships, I think that's what the "credit" means.  For confirmation though it is best to check with B&H.  I'll be a little ticked if my order is scratched because I got it in too early but the only email I have received is my order confirmation so I'm assuming everything is good to go.

Someone's a little insecure about something to have to post a pic of cash.

EOS Bodies / Re: The new 5D Mark III ?!?! PICS!

The way for Canon to make a splash here is simple, price.

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.
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).

Yes as long as the price doesn't go over $3,500 (curious if this is packaged with a lens but I doubt it).  I currently have a 40D so this will be a significant upgrade for me.  If I had the 5DMII and these specs do turn out to be accurate then I don't think it would be a significant improvement to warrant an upgrade.
