That would be good to know. I ordered mine on the 2nd from Adorama, and can't find out anything on where I am in the queue.

:O  in Ireland its €3500, retailers / distributers here think there is no such thing as Online stores or distance selling!
laughable really Germany Italy France all have cheaper electronics typically 20% -30% than Ireland once it comes in its "oh Ill have a slice of this from distributor to retailer" the greed is blinding! they need to get serious.
€3,000 in Ireland Id more than likely buy, but 3500? no!

I ordered mine also for 3,500 euros; I live in the Netherlands... I was out of town on March 2nd and 3rd, so I ordered on March 4th... I'm very curious when it will be shipped  :)

I preordered today. I'm behind 95 others.

I wanted to see what the sensor can do before buying - but it looks like it'll do what I need. The major addition for me is the focussing and maybe the dual card slot. I'm pretty happy - unless it turns out to be a step backwards from the 5d2 ;)

5D II leaves today after an eBay sale.  :'(  Total cost for 3.3 years of ownership? $1321, or $1.14/day.  And that was for the kit and grip.  ;D

Hoping my 5D III ships soon after the March 22nd date...    Have a crop camera to tide me over.

This UK dealer shows camera for sale March 22 (as CR shows), but Kit not available until June.  Same for the US?

http://www.jessops.com/canoneos5dmkiii

I ordered the kit from B&H on March 2nd at approx. 9am and now I am wondering if the kit will be delayed. Is there any speculation as to why the kit may be delayed? I live in the states, but how would that affect whether or not the kit would ship at the same time as the bodies alone....?

On another note, I spoke with a local retailer here in Florida and they said that they missed the first pre-order because they didn't have anyone order, but that the Canon rep said they are shipping to the store this week. I asked her if I order from her how long it would take and she said that Canon has filed allotments on a monthly basis in the past and she suspected the same, and that it would probably take about 3 weeks to get it.

I dropped by a major specialty camera store here in Houston today at lunch.  They have the camera for pre-order for $3399.  No, not a typo, thirty three hundred ninty nine and no/100.  He suggested that is what they were told is MSRP.  Would cost me an extra $180 over online, but may be worth it to support local.  He also looked up how many pre-orders and there are only 10 so far.  He sad Canon is set to ship next week and he was hoping to be allocated by end of month.

Oh terrific the iPad 3 (or is it iPad HD) is clogging up all the planes and boats coming out of China right now.

(I am guessing this will affect 5D3 shipments as well)

Doubtful...  all of Canon's EOS bodies and lenses are manufactured in Japan.

Not all, most of the consumer grade bodies and lenses are made elsewhere, right now, they are made in Taiwan, but over the years, they have been made elsewhere as well.

The higher level bodies and lenses are made in Japan.

Yes, all.

Every EOS, from the T2i to the 1DX, is made in Japan.  As such, shipping issues in China will not impact 5D3 deliveries.

Update:  OK, you got me.  The T3 is the one EOS *not* made in Japan.  My bad.   8)

I pre-ordered yesterday from Camera Pro in Brisbane (Australia) (I'm in Melbourne) and they said that they'd be shipping within the first two weeks of April (this is for the 24-105 kit) :) So just over a month wait for me. Very excited!

Many of the Rebels were made in Taiwan, the T3 is the current one being made there.  To further confuse the issue, some bodies were made both in Taiwan and in Japan.

There was a thread here about a year back where users posted images of the camera name plate.  There were some hybrids as well, that indicated something like parts made in Taiwan, assembled in Japan.  My Rebel was made in Japan, but others had the same body made in Taiwan.

A ton of EOS lenses are made there including the nifty 50.

Just noticed on Amazon that the 5DIII body says "not yet released" while the 5DIII kit with 24-105 f/4L lens says "will be released on March 31, 2012." Is this a good sign or bad?
