I got mine today! I called around New York City and K&M had one they said they would sell me if I begged. Body-only. Cancelled my B&H order. Woohoo! They also have the D800, for anyone interested in the NYC area.

Anyone order after the 2nd from B&H get a notice yet? I ordered the 4th and am now very sad as well, Henry Posner from B&H responded to me on another forum but can't give details other than another shipment is coming in next week to B&H.

I ordered on March 2 at 10:30 AM (EST). That would be only ten minutes after your order. I hope I hear something soon! BTW - Did you order the kit or the body only?

I ordered from Amazon 6:32am on March 2nd (body only)
this is a chat I just had with them.

Queen:Yes, I see this is for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III 22.3 MP Full Frame CMOS Digital SLR Camera (Body) , right? 1:24:42 PM

Me:yes1:24:51 PM

Queen:In understand that you contacted us about this already yesterday and the shipping date is still unknown since the item is still with the supplier. I am sorry for the delay. But rest assured that we will keep your order open until we get the item and we will email you right away. 1:26:12 PM

Me:I ordered this item hours after Amazon started taking pre orders on March 2nd. Others are starting to ship from Amazon so how could it be still with the supplier? When you spend $3,500 you expect answers. 1:28:22 PM

Queen:I understand how you fell Lynn and I am sorry, I cannot confirm that someone had shipping soon status already because by far, we are getting this concern and I can assure you that we do not have the item yet and if we do we make sure to be fair with the customers to ship it right away as they pre ordered it. You have not been charged yet as well since we charge upon shipping not upon ordering. 1:30:13 PM

Me:so my pre order will be filled in order that is was received? No one should get this before me, that ordered after I did?1:32:19 PM

Queen:Yes, that's correct.

someone is lying.....

Agreed. Considering how many times I've contacted Amazon (and the responses I've received), I'm skeptical until I see screenshots.

i was kinda upset with Amazon because it seems like they were not fulfilling orders on a first come first serve basis. Many who ordered after me (2:16am Mar 2) are alreading getting their shipment notices. I cancelled and ordered with Norman Camera, MI and will be receiving it tomorrow.

Indeed. Color me a believer. And a jealous one at that! There must be a correlation between shipping priority and destination relative to distribution center. Here's to hoping...

Has anyone received a shipping notice from Amazon that ordered the 5D3 w/24-105 kit?   I ordered my kit on 3/2 at 9:30AM PST and received an email that my order would ship on April 2nd.  The Amazon website currently says my order "Not yet shipped".

Are bodies shipping first, then kits?
