I just received an email from Canon CPS offering CPS members an opportunity to see the new Canon 5D Mark III at two seminars this month, one in Atlanta and one in Chicago.

The email starts off saying "The camera doesn’t begin shipping until next month," so if you think you'll be getting a 5D Mark III this month you're probably dreaming. Looks like we may be in for a long wait to get this camera now that it's "officially" released.

Might be a miscommunication somewhere, considering:

I have confirmed March 22, 2012 as the for sale date in both Canada and the United States. Cameras will arrive before that date to retailers, but cannot be sold until then.

Somebody is wrong...

That was my thought.

Typical internal corporate confusion.

I tend to believe the March 22 date more because it looks like an active response to a dealer issue.

(though perhaps it is an optimistic date)

I got the same email and that's what I took away from the message. 
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, Canon 85 1.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

Sounds a lot like when somebody started a thread prior to the announcement of the MDKIII stating that a canon rep confirmed the MKIII would NOT be announced on March 2nd..... but here we are.

I'm going to stick with what CR says.

Yeah, my dealer guaranteed my 5d3 will be shipped overnight to me and I'll receive it March 23rd.

It's annoying when these type of supposedly "corporate" emails show up stating bad news.  How can the news go out that there are 2 factories pumping out 5DmkIII's and that retailers will be receiving shipments before March 22 so pre-orders will begin to be filled on March 22?... Then out of nowhere some supposedly official email for an event states that the 5DmkIII will not be available on March 22...  >:( Gotta filter out all the BS even after the camera is officially announced? These clowns... lmfao  ::)

I got the the same email. While it did say they were shipping next month, it also said this:

Along with the EOS 5D Mark III, we’ll also be showing early production samples of the:

• EOS-1D X
• Speedlite 600EX-RT
• Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT
• Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E6A (for EOS-1D X)
• GPS Receiver GP-E1 (for EOS-1D X)
• EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II
---------------------
I really think this one is getting blown out of proportion. This isn't an official announcement. It's just an email.

Henry's Canada sent out a 5D3 announcement earlier today that said "available late March in limited quantity."

More info here:  http://www.henrys.com/Canon-EOS-5D-Mark-III-Camera.aspx

I think the 3-22 date is legit.  Albeit, for a small number of people who are 1st on those lists.
