Well I called Foto Riesel in Sydney (AUS) and they are saying the pricing is around 4200-4400 (I believe he mentioned $4344)

They had a presentation apparently in the IMAX theatre those lucky boys...

But still I can get it from BH for 3500 = $3350 aus rate + about $80 shipping ($3420) the GST which will put it
to about $3762 ($500 cheaper than AUS)

So to anybody who has preordered bith BHP, what does it say for your order status when you log in and look at your orders?

New Order, Back order, Pending? An approximate shipping date or what?

Mine says: New order processing.  My confirmation email (from B&H) was received at 12:13am.

Just pre-ordered from BH. With the kit lens 24-105mm. Hope I won't be too far back in the wait-list.

Any one else having issues with the payment for B&H? Maybe it's just my card haha.

Also, I should be fine if I order it tomorrow afternoon, or am I going to be thrown way back in the Pre-order line.

When you open the "track order" screen it just tells you "new order processing". There is no anticipated ship date or anything so I dunno if there is any truth to the rumor that the 5DmkIII may be shipping "this month".  Doesn't really matter to me though... It will be available whenever it is available. I'm just happy that I got on the pre order early enough to possibly get one on the first shipment... errr... or at least not have wait as long as I would have to wait for it to become a regularly stocked item in stores. ;D

I confirm that the only info I have on my order is "new order processing", no shipping date mentioned.
The availability at the end of March is not a rumor, it is quoted in Canon official press release,  but it is far from being a guarantee that Canon will honor his words.

Edit: it may not be an official info in the press release since I could not find the availability info on canon.com. The source that mentioned that is the following (last paragraph) http://www.digital-photography-school.com/canon-eos-5d-first-look?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+DigitalPhotographySchool+%28Digital+Photography+School%29

Got an immediate backorder on BH

Adorama has a lead page, but dead link at this moment.


The actual product page with "Add to Cart" button now shows up.

I just placed my order with B&H and it says "preorder, released in limited qty".  I don't see anything about when it'll be released though.  And it does say that my credit card was "amount charged - $3499.00".

Wish I had the $$$$ in my account to pre-order -  thats about a about a month off for me.

Weird though, isn't it usually policy to maybe take use your card to reserve the pre-order, but actually charge the card when it ships?

The $3499 is a temporary charge B&H does to confirm that you can actually buy the camera. The pending charge will disappear in a day or two and you won't actually get charged until the camera ships.

Canon Japan says "Available for sale in late March" right there:

I did preorder from Adorama, and of course I would like to receive the camera "soon", but I find it hard to believe the "end of March" date - my guess is that, yes - they will start shipping in late March, but only to a select few buyers - pros that get their stuff directly from Canon.

The people that buy from places like B&H and Adorama (or their equivalents in other countries) will probably have to wait a bit longer ... April/May?

My order status now shows "backordered".
Since it it the first time that I do a pre-order on B&H (normally, I just buy items in stock), what does it mean ?

Does it mean that I ordered too late and did not make it to the pre-order waiting list ?
Do you have a different status ?
