I just finally got the 5d mark iii body today. It feels surreal especially since I am upgrading from 500d. I think my 3 years of yearning finally paid off :P

Just for everyone's info, I had ordered at BH on 6th March, did not make it to first batch, cancelled the pre-order and then ordered from a local online store to get it this morning. Wishing everyone here in this thread "HAPPY CLICKING".

I dont think I will be checking back on this thread, thanks everyone for your suggestions that got the body quicker to me.

Sadly for me Puralator just picked my package from B&H. I was ready to go yesterday. I could have had it today if they picked it yesterday. Well, atleast I will get it on monday.

I've had mine for a few days now and I'm ashamed to admit I haven't switched it on.

Where's the on button? They moved it!

I did play with a 5D3 at Focus on Imaging recently, and TBH I hate not having the camera set up for my preferences and not knowing where the hell all the options are. So I'm going to be a bit OCD and read the manual first so when I do take it out I can shoot and not fiddle with menus etc. But that's just me, I'm weird like that :)

Yep, that's what happens when you meet then UPS truck and have to drive back home, but hit some red lights and have a phone that can connect to the Internet.

Has anyone actually received their camera from B&H yet?  I ordered just minutes after the announcement.  I've received a tracking number and my card has been billed but my status for the last 2 days has been the following

"A UPS shipping label has been created. Once the shipment arrives at our facility, the tracking status--including the scheduled delivery date--will be updated."

Print the label, charge my card, and just let it sit there... what gives?  Anyone else see this?

That's typical of UPS. It might show up at your door, and the tracking system could still be reporting "...shipping label created..." or "... shipping information has been received..."

I pre-ordered my 5D Mark III kit from Amazon and seem to check their site throughout the day to see if they have shipped it... even though I am confident they will send me an email.  I am so excited!  Hopefully everyone will cancel their pre-orders from Amazon so I can get mine sooner!!!  haha

Calumet Photo in Washington D.C. is showing 1 body in stock right now 10am CST but have to order it over the phone.  I have to get mine online so I have to pass.  It might actually be called Penn Camera there.

After going through this myself, mine is out for delivery this morning.  Got the email Saturday, with expected delivery today, Monday.  Now I just wish it would hurry up.

Good luck!
