Funny how the cameras were announced:
1Dx --> D4 --> D800 --> 5D3

And they are being released:
5D3 --> D800 --> D4 --> 1Dx

I just don't understand.

I suppose it depends upon how one defines out. There are like 4 people who have them.

The D4 did come out first, I have a friend that has one.

I preordered a D4 over a month ago to use with a 200-400 lens... nothing. crickets. I ordered a 5D3 last night and it's already on its way to my house. But I suppose technically I'm wrong, even though nobody has one.

Waiting is over...mine just arrived  ;) ;) ;)

I pick mine up Monday when I get back from a trip I am on.  Cancelled B&H-I was a March 6 pre-order.  Got on a short waiting list from a local store and hour+ drive from where I live. I was 6th on their waiting list but they had a kit with the 24-105.  I had a buyer lined up for my 5D2 (my son-in-law) asked if he wanted a kit lens as well.  He said yes, we struck a deal and today I bought the 5D3 with kit lens!!  If I was home it'd be in my hot little hands.  I got the idea to go local or other sources form you Dylan, so thanks!  If I waited for my pre-order it wouldn't have arrived until the end of the month or early April - at least for those of you in a similar time frame, I hope my calculations are wrong. Atlesat those behind me are one spot closer. To all, ENJOY whenever you get yours!
Happy owner of the 5D Mark III, 24-105 f/4L and other L lenses

Has anyone else heard from Adorama? Sales reps seem to be very unreliable.....they tell me they haven't received any MIII's but I see confirmations on this thread. Calling around now.

Also have the "Pending", I feel it will be worth the wait. People are posting footage and unboxing videos, waiting to see what Phillip Bloom has to say about it.

Cameta.com is 100% certain that they will be getting in a shipment today (Body Only), he has Kits on hand. Between them and Adorama we will see who gets my money first.
