Pre-ordered at Adorama around 9:30 pst. Just sold my 5d mk2 that I got during christmas to a friend of mine for $1800. I was gonna sell it for $1900 on craigslist but this was for my friend who lets me use his studio for free.

it's probably just a temporary pre-authorization.  they run your card to make sure it's legit, but it's different than an actual charge.  they "pre-authorized" my card too.

they'll for-real charge you once the item ships. 

i believe it's illegal for vendors to charge you unless your item is about to ship (unless your'e special ordering something)

My order went in at 9:22pm PST, when it still said backorder, not pre-order. They charged my card, I used paypal. I ended up canceling the order and went with my Amazon order because I had credit.

Depends on which state it is being shipped to. Adorama and BH charge for NY and I think NJ. Amazon there are a couple states. http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=468512

I pre-ordered from B&H on the 2nd at 5 AM EST.  Today I see a $3500 charge to my debit card.  B&H status still shows backordered.  Can't wait to see the high-ISO capabilities of this camera!   :o

Yeah, despite no-one getting back to me from you guys about what "new order processing" means, I'm guessing it's fine, as B&H have taken the money from my credit card! I'm sure by tuesday it will all be ironed out though. Like you said, they can't charge you without having the goods in stock.

Correct- this is like checking into a hotel.  The do a preauth charge, but don't complete the charge until you check out.  If you ordered from Adorama, you will see a $50 charge on your card.

I actually was one of the first orders for Camera Canada with the free "$120" Pro Lexar 16GB CF and I have sent a request to cancel via their contact us form (anyone know a different way to cancel?) because after doing the math for me the order from B&H is $400 cheaper!!!. I weighed my pro's and con's and came to the decision that even though I ordered only today and not right when it came out it will not matter if I don't receive it in time for my trip to Hawaii if I save $400!!! How can a Canadian ignore those savings? (also because I used paypal to check out with the money I had sitting as USD from sales of lenses) Seriously though? $400 DOLLARS??? I can't ignore that even though now I will probably not get it till June or July... I just need it by August for sure or I will be screwed! I have a bunch of payed work that requires a pro body by the end of August.

Why is this thread pinned? It's completely inappropriate, IMO.

Who cares THAT MUCH who's pre-ordered a 5D3?

The "5D3 Review List" thread deserves to be pinned, because it's useful to many people.

Can someone un-pin this one, please? It's just stuck up there, making the forum look untidy.

Why are you preordering before you know about the IQ, Dynamic Range and high iso noise? (Im not telling you not to just wondering why)
I will for sure wait untill I know how much IQ improvement there is from 5D2.
Even if the 5D3 is better at all points than 5D2 it would just be impossible for me to buy if the D800 has higher IQ at both low and high iso and is cheaper. In that case I will keep the 5D2 and wait for 5D4. Perhaps even consider switching.
