Adorama, 9:41 Pacific (12:41 Eastern). 

I probably lost 5 minutes messing around with the interface to be sure I had it correct.

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.

I did....see attachment to see BH receipt  ;)

Dropping fast, especially since it will remain in the Canon lineup at a lower retail price...

I'm happy to see all those that have taken the plunge.  Makes me feel comfortable knowing alot of folks will make sure it's a good, solid camera and any bugs will be worked through quickly.  Also, maybe the price will come down, ensuring that when I buy I'll have a thoroughly vetted product at maybe a better price.

I'll keep my 60D as crop body and use it while waiting 5D III to be arrived.

Hi neuroanatomist,
With 5D III Specs...are you going to get 1D X?

Most likely the 1D X, yes.  Still not 100% decided, but I definitely didn't preorder the 5DIII.

Yeah, interesting Canon is keeping the 5d2.  I can only assume the 5d3 must have baller AF and killer IOS vs. 5d2 to justify the 5d3 price.

I sold mine last week for $1925.00.  But I doubt you can get that now.  Lucky me and my timing  ;D

I just ordered *MY* 5D3 from Best Buy.  The estimated delivery date printed on my order is 03/05 to 03/10/2012 (not 2013 ;D ).  I don't know how accurate this is, but I get a discount as a frequent buyer and free shipping...

Cheers
