I just received that exact same email.  Not sure if it means I didn't make the first batch or not.  I ordered about 4 hours after the initial announcement, so I won't be too surprised if I did miss it.

Just received an email from B&H related to my 5DMk3 Body order:

Dear xxxxxxx:

You placed order #xxxxxxxxx on 03/02/12.

One or more items from this purchase are still out of stock as we haven't yet received the merchandise from our supplier. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. We will keep you posted on a weekly basis.

Got the same email. Placed my order March-1 at 10:22pm before it even said "Pre-order"!! I hope it's just a automated response.

B&H just wants us to calm down because they know other parts of the world many people got their cameras already. Probably they're tired of 500 questions everyday from customers asking about the order status of 5D mark III lol

I received the same e-mail. I doubt that this message has anything at all to do with the 5D3 specifically. I agree with others that this is just something programmed into their system for ANY product for which someone has placed an order, but XX days have past since the order and the item is still not in stock. Customer service 101.

Definitely.  I'm very confident in the above assertion as I had ordered one 600EX-RT when I ordered the 5Dmk3, and decided a week later to order a 2nd and the ST-E3 transmitter.  I only received the notice for the first 600EX-RT, and not for the 2nd that I ordered later on.

Yeah, I got the same thing. I pulled the trigger at the equivalent of 2:30AM Eastern. I imagine it went out to everyone, for no reason other than to stop people calling up. Everyone needs to unclench and be patient. I hope.

So what are other's best guess on when we will see the first shipping notices?  Maybe the 21st in the evening or
maybe a couple days before?

Is the Canon model "not to leave the room until March 22"? <g>

or

"Not to be delivered until March 22?"? (A La iPad)

I'm not really fussed - mine is going to my girlfriend in Philly, and I pick it up April 4th, so as long as it's sometime in the next two weeks (it's gotta be, right? RIGHT?) then I'm set. Now... who wants to buy a 7D?

I got a survey email today and not one like has been posted-I ordered on the 6th.  so in my survey I blasted them about giving the same canned/scripted response even on their chat line.  Maybe I'm not the only one to complain, so these are going out now to calm the masses.  Maybe some ahead of me will jump ship and cancel their order ;D  ;) and then I can get mine within the next few weeks or -fingers crossed-sooner!

Didn't pre-order, walked into Jessops (Leeds, UK) this afternoon and bought the kit with the 24-105 lens.  Am happy, but poor.

While I'm jealous, in two weeks I'll have my own and be £800 better off. Which kind of alleviates it.
