5DIII pre-order thread
« on: March 02, 2012, 01:31:57 AM »
With all the hoopla surrounding the 5DIII, who actually put their money where there mouths are and put in a pre-order? Me  :D

My order went in at 12:10 EST at B&H. Hopefully that was fast enough to get one of the first batches.

My confirmation email is 12:18 AM EST from BHPhoto.  Hopefully that gets me one of the first cameras shipped.

I placed my B&H preorder a little after 10pm PST.  Hope it was early enough to get one from the first shipment to B&H, which is probably one of the largest retailers for this camera and so I would expect they will have a sizable allotment in the first wave of mkIIIs (at least more than Adorama).  I do wish I saw the preorder earlier though.

As soon as I read enough to see that it was, indeed, a big improvement especially for video, I put a pre-order in at B&H -- 10:15 PST.  Hopefully I'll be in the first batch, but didn't realize so many were jumping in so fast to get one.   I really like the 2 stop noise improvement in the ISO.

I've pre-ordered as well.  I can always cancel if I find that its not the improvement I am hoping for.

Maybe it's because I'm coming from a 50D, but I looked at the low light/high ISO samples from DPReview and was incredibly impressed. I'm a low light junky so the step up for me should be night and day. I preordered around 2:30am from Amazon.
5DIII 8-200mm minus 35mm in there.
