Is it a marketing ploy to get the kits out for a few days earlier than the bodies only?

Wondering how many might consider upgrading from body only to a kit?

I considered changing to the kit, not because it was coming earlier, because I thought it may make a good walking around lens as when I go FF my current walking around elns becomes too wide.

Anyway, when I asked about changing I found that because the kit is a different product I would go from quite high up the preorder line for the body to bottom of the list for the kit... so I changed my mind!

Adorama guy is still telling me they don't have any in yet and to call back next week to check on status.  He also said the kit version doesn't have very many pre-orders.

Just had my 5D III body status changed to shipped so look like they are starting to send them out from DigitalRev, that was ordered on first day they had them on their site.

Can't wait to get my hands on it, it's on 3 day DHL so should be here soon.

You're lucky and ordered from DigitalRev. Which country are you in though? it may take some shipping time for the 5D3 to get to you from HK.

Mistake...! You MAY get the kit faster and even if you get it a few days later, you do not want to miss out on getting a super walk around less at discounted cost....

Ditto! Mine shipped, although I think it said ETA 28th March so maybe they shipped mine via tortoise.

I will soon be in desperate need of a 3.2" loupe. I don't think anyone's making them yet :/
I called Hoodman and the CSR told me that the 3" should fit the 3.2in screen. If that helps or even if that is true.  Only was to find out is if someone of us has a loupe and test it out on the 5D3
Happy owner of the 5D Mark III, 24-105 f/4L and other L lenses

I'm in UK, it usually doesn't take long about 3 days to ship stuff from them to me, they take care of tax so doesn't get stuck in customs.

Its best price for someone in UK as I got it for £2499 and from any where in UK its £3000. They give you a full uk warranty so easy £500 saved.

Although order from them now and price has gone up bit, they have a fair bit of stock as new orders deliver on  21 Mar 2012 - 23 Mar 2012, guess the benefit of them being so close to Japan.

The dimensions of the 5D3 screen are 1.78" by 2.66" (unless my maths is wrong, which is quite possible!!) - so if anyone can check their loupes that would be very handy. My GGS loupe is not wide enough - I suspect most / all other 3" 4:3 loupes will be the same.

Just sold my 5DII and BG-E6 so . . . Just pre-ordered new stuff from B&H.

Compared prices for body, BG-E11 grip and extra LP-E6 battery.
B&H and Adorama are exactly the same. Amazon was also the same for body and battery except the BG-E11 was USD490. While it was only USD349.99 at B&H and Adorama.

I know I am probably waaaaay down the pre-order list. I wonder when I can expect my stuff?

Last time I checked their T&C the buyer had to deal with Customs?

When did you put your order in? They put a pending 50.00 charge on my credit card on March 1st.

They cover the tax if you add it to basket just below the total price they say:

No Import Tax/Duty to Pay:
Any import tax/duty charged will
be billed directly us.

I did double check this and any duty is billed directly to them, the price i've paid is the total price, it not same for all products, they do it one three ways, this page explains it:

http://www.digitalrev.com/ebay/support/uk/uk_fpp.html

Usually ebay auctions cheaper and have no tax included but web site stuff has tax but its more expensive, i'd prefer to buy in uk but £500 saving to good pass up, just must stop checking my tracking link every 5 mins :)
