I'm in Montreal, but I put a hold on one at Henry's in TO early on (I think it was February). I used my CPS number and was told it would move me up the line. I got an email in June asking me to confirm my postal code, but they did not have an expected date. I haven't heard anything since. Canon did want to know if I was going to the Olympics. I am not. I figure it was for on site support.
To be honest, I bought the 5D Mark III at the beginning of May when the 1DX was being delayed again and again. I'm considering not nabbing the 1DX and going with a second 5D MIII instead. I am actually nervous about that phone call now: "Sir, your 1DX is ready to ship. Shall we charge your card?" "Ummmmmmm...."
Anybody have news on the expected Canadian CPS pricing? 6500$ still?
CPS price is $5900cdn, got that price from camera store in Calgary after they verified my CPS membership. 2 1dx arrived in Edmonton, and it's true that CPS gets priority. Camera store has not gotten their shipment yet as of this afternoon. Vistek is still quoting CPS pricing at 6300.
I'm number 6 on the camera store list. We'll see how many they get in.
Keeping my fingers crossed!!
