I ordered mine a little before 12:05am EST at B&H, so about 2-3 minutes after it was listed. My order also says "back-ordered". I think it just has to deal with them not having the camera in stock.

Received confirmation at 9:24 PST from Adorama (ordered a minute after the page loaded)--and yet I just got an email saying it's backordered?  How?  I doubt more than a few people were able to order before me and Adorama should get a huge first shipment.

What have others who've ordered from Adorama found?

I'm sure your fine, they probably don't know how many they are getting and are playing it safe.

has anyone heard anywhere if the live view lcd cuts out when you attach an external monitor?
if we don't have clean hdmi, then we better have at least that!
my gh2 from last year has that!

I ordered the body only at 12:10 and the kit later on at 11AM in the morning.

Does the kit normally ship later than the body?

I ordered, body only. Debating whether I should have picked up the kit lens and sold it. The difference was about $750 in Canada for what is normally a $1k+ lens.

This is my first full frame. I have a 50mm 1.4 and a 70-200 f4. Was planning on getting the 16-35 when I went full frame. I only opted out of the kit lens as I do miss the higher speed on of the 2.8 70-200 sometimes ( not the weight).

Maybe the f4 will feel fast enough ln this camera to debate keeping the 24-105?  Maybe I could sell it for around 1k?  I am sure i canchange my order with little hastle.

Thoughts?

I ordered both the body and the kit in 2 separate orders at about 2AM from B&H.  Both receipts said I pre-ordered it.  Checking online they both say  "back-ordered".

I have a 24-105mm but thought i should replace it, and sell my older lens with my 5D II.   I think I will cancel the body order.   

I ordered the 5DII kit about a week after it was introduced.  I got it about 3 weeks after it started shipping.

I pre-ordered from a local Canon retailer in Montreal, Camtech Photo. They asked for a $100.00 deposit and said I was the third one on their list, that i would be most likely in the 'first batch'

Hoping that my support of local business will pay off and i won't wait much longer then those who ordered from B&H or Henrys!

Guys, I think you misreading it- of course it's back ordered- it's not out yet at Adorama.  That's why you are seeing that.  It doesn't mean the you preordered it and now they are sold out.

I just checked my order at Adorama and it says the status is pending.  I hope that is just because it is not out yet and there is not some other problem.

Ordered mine from B&H at about 10:00 AM EST today and order status says, "Backordered". Not sure what that means.

A lot of times it seems to be a crap shoot. May depend on how many the dealer orders of each and how many of each they get delivered.
