I've been going back and forth on whether I should invest my money in the new 5DMKIII that is bound to be out shortly or the new Canon 24-70 f2.8 II.
My 5DMKII does an admirable job already and I can't think of a reason why "I" would need to upgrade to the MKIII (save for tech envy) so I decided to put my money on the new 24-70 instead.
Preordered mine from BHPhoto this morning. Curious however, with a ship date of April 17th and large distributor's such as BHphoto - how long do you think it will take them to fulfill preorders? Would I be better off buying it locally or at another smaller online retailer where most people wouldn't go to?
With BH being so large, I'm sure that will impact their allotment during the initial shipment of the lens. This is my first time pre-ordering camera tech before and I'm just kind of curious what the turn around time might look like!
