Ordered mine from National Camera in MN.  I was number 27, so hopefully first batch.

If a B&M in Minnesota already has 27 preorders in, then I'm guessing that the MkIII is going to sell in huge numbers.  Although it may just be the first wave of early adopters.

Pre-ordered from B&H, but may not pull the rigger when it arrives. I will probably wait for some hard reviews once it's released.  But I waffle on this about x10/day-"get it.  No wait. Get it NOW..."  :-\

I ordered mine from Amazon at 9:20 mountain this morning. I notice it's already #5 in their best selling items list. I wonder how many units you have to move in a day

I ordered mine from Amazon at about 10:30 E.S.T. this morning. It wasn't even on the bestseller list at that point in time. I just checked and now the body is #1 and the kit is #3. These things are going like hotcakes!

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

My order went in at the same time...got my fingers crossed...any thoughts if you guys think I'm in the first batch? Second? Hooping to have my body shipped to FL where my folks winter, save on $827 in taxes etc by having it shipped there and they can bring it back to Canada for me...

pre-ordered mine this morning from Camera Pro here in Brisbane. i was one of the first, if not the first, which is good since i don't see Brisbane getting that many.  ::) and at $3,865.00 AUD, i'm probably getting it for the cheapest price around at the moment.

Nice...that's a bit more like it.

Maybe I should flog off my 7D and 5D MkII on ebay..........

I feel your pain!  I have  the 5D Mark II, so I'm not in a rush.  I've decided to wait until it's in the store, so that I can try it out.

Geez..,,,, Been waiting sooooo long for Mark 5D III pulled the triggered through Amazon last night.  I could have waited and see it real person but given all the reviews and I know I would want it.  Price is what I expected $3200-$3600.  Now I will wait patiently for new toy to come.   :-)

For those of you that are complaining about how high 5D III cost, go buy 5D II or go buy Nikon D800.  In my opinion $3500 is not bad compare to 5D II released back in Sept. 2008 was $2700.  Again that was 3+ yrs ago.  If you don't have $$ just wait until holiday season to buy with $200-300 discount.  I know many of us having to wait another 7-8 month for $200-$300 is not that big deal and I am one of them.

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!

What was the price @ Camtech?

How long does it take usually for the second batch to ship after the first?
