I'm a new member here but I've been lurking on this site for the past year. I was waiting on the release of the 5d Mark III but due to the last two big "anouncements" that did not include a new 5D Mark III, I pulled the trigger this past Tuesday to take advantage of Amazon's reduced price. Needless to say I felt pretty lucky since Amazon raised its price an hour or two later.
This event opened the floodgates of a lot of pent-up waiting and now I have Canon fever. I also purchased the 8 - 15 fisheye, the 100mm macro IS, the mp-e 65, the mt-24ex flash along with a lot of other sundries.
By tomorrow it all arrives! The night before I was contemplating buying through Henry's in Canada which would have been a great deal also (even with Paypal's 2.9% cut--I live in the U.S.).
I've learned a lot on this site.
A big thank-you to neuroamatomist for his insightful posts!
