Live chatted with B&H today, they have no way of giving priority to CPS platinum members unfortunately, but I was told I am high on the list with an order # xxxxx86xxx ending with low numbers
They suggested possible delivery by my next project, June 28. One can only hope
You where lucky, the representative I chatted with told me is against company policy to give such information. And there is no priority other than your place on the cue which won't discuss either
I preordered the morning or the 13th, so I hope I'm not to down on the cue.
It is the luck of the draw which sales rep is helping. I also got confirmation a while back that I should be high up on the list to receive the camera, but the company policy basically stops them from telling you exactly what number you are on the list. Also, I think the biggest thing here is not where you are on the list, but when B&H will actually receive their shipment of cameras. Did Canon already send out the shipments and the distributors will have it on the 20th, or is Canon sending out the fleet only on the 20th? B&H basically told me they have no control over when Canon sends the cameras...
Obviously we will know more in 24 hours, but I have been wondering why we haven't yet seen any pictures posted on the CanonRumors main page of boxes and boxes of the 1D-X being readied for shipping (as there were just before the 5D Mark III launch).
Maybe because its just a few boxes here and there not enough to cause any excitement. When canon says limited first shipment..they mean limited.
