Has anyone who ordered from the US Amazon store had theirs shipped yet?

I pre-ordered July 2nd, and Amazon was quoting an 8/26 release, and now they are showing out of stock on the body, the 18-55 and 18-135.

Wondering if they didn't get any stock allocation from Canon?

I was in the same boat as you.  this afternoon I canceled my order with amazon and ordered from abt.com, they are a BIG local appliance and electronics store north of chicago and are awsome.  I know for a fact that they still have three body onlys in stock as of right now.

I pre-ordered mine on July 4th so I called Amazon today to check status.  She told me the first batch shipped out today and they are now sold out.  They are awaiting more inventory from Canon.  She said her internal system was giving her an estimated date of August 29th - 30th for my camera to be delivered.

The waiting is the hardest part.

I dont know for sure but if i had to guess I would say the 29th-30th would be a pipe dream but i could be wrong.  please let me know if I am!  hope for you it shows up on the 29th

I pre-order the 10-18mm f4 E Sony lens for my Nex the first day it was available for pre-order from Amazon and they had not send it a month after release.  In the end I canceled and bought it from another dealer.  It started out as next shipment expected in 2 days then one week then two weeks then Unknown.  Lesson Learned NEVER pre-order from Amazon.  That said I get 90% of my camera gear from Amazon. 

My Nex 6 ordered a week after because they had a system glitch preventing pre-orders was only 2 weeks late. 

Hope you have better luck.

Then again this is a much bigger problem with Sony than Canon.  They are practically chronically over ordered on initial release.

I just got an email saying it would arrive the 29th.

Hard to believe they sold out of the first batch already, and I wasn't included... considering I pre-ordered really early. Strange.... but they just charged my card as well so I'm thinking the 2nd batch is shipping out tomorrow/Wednesday.

I tried to buy one in an shop in my neighbourcountry Austria today. CPS store. 1099€.
They got  just a few dozen of them. One will be reservated for me :-) and I will fetch it tomorrow.


Got the info, that only CPS stores get them @ this date. Others have to wait longer.
Amazon Germany wrote today, that the delivery date at the end of October will be possible, because of the small amount of Cams they get and the huge count of preorders.....

BTW: cheap way to hold an higher price: Deliver the item to be sold only piece by piece....

Lots of pictures of boxes but no actual 70D images!

Update - I went to a local camera store during my lunch break to play about with the 70D. The LV AF is amazingly fast, you just touch the screen to focus and it's instant and accurate. The ergonomics are similar to the 7D but everything is smaller. It's like a mini 7D in a way. Feels solid and the grip is similar to the 7D too, glad they got rid of the 60D grip, yuk!

Only played about with it for a few minutes but it seems like a well rounded solidly built little APS-C with very good, sharp images with good color rendition.
