When did you place your pre-order?

About 30 seconds after BH went live with mkIII page... last week I was told I was 118 in the cue. I was also told they were only recieving 100 copies. BH are total BS'ers though and not sure I will ever order from them again. Just checked again and card was def charged for the full price, now waiting for delivery notice. Signature is required so I will have to have this info to know when shipped.

what does the status of your order say on B&H's website?

I have not recieved any new email with shipping info yet. Only my credit card was charged...

My order was termed a "Backorder" , when I spoke with them I was told that meant I was pretty fast as they were supposed to be "Pre-order" status. About 2 minutes after I placed my order that was indeed changed to preorder but my order remained a "Backorder".

Like I've said, until I get a shipment confimation... hopefully this evening here in Cali, it all is up in the air. Actually, until it's in my hands...

Just checked again... def charge for 3529.65

Sub Total $3499.00
Shipping $30.65
Sales Tax $0.00
Total $3529.65

BTW... did anyone else get a customer service survey this morning? I did and it was specifically about this order.

So does your credit card just show a lower available balance? Or does it actually show a processed charge from B&H?

It is a charge not an authorization, I just recieved a call from BofA asking if this charge is legit.

 And no... Im not giving you my credit card number.

8:42:12 pm 3/01 which I can only assume was 3/02 in NY

I did talk to Leon ( a CSR) at BH and he did confirm my order, changed my shipping method to 3 day and confirm I was 118 in the cue. Changing my shipping method did not move me (forward or back) in the cue.

Until I recieve a shipping notification, who knows what the real story is. Bank of America did call to confim this charge though... hopefully I get an email with shipping confimation. Only then will I feel a bit better, then next will be it ACTUALLY arriving.

Anyone else pissed about BH's "policy" in regards to the 5DmkIII? Enough to never shop there again. I am pretty close to never going back, or at least making them the last resort.

What time zone are you in - I thought I was pretty quick on the draw getting in 11 mins after midnight EST - but you look to be in well before... :)

EST mine worked out to be :

Fri, 2 Mar 2012 00:11:20 -0500 (EST)

This was still while it was flagged as "backordered" rather than pre-order.

Congrats on the new camera - enjoy it :D

If it helps any. I just cancelled my pre-order that I ordered on Mar. 1st at 9am EST @ B&H. 

I decided to get a 1DX, however since I only got on that list today not sure how long I will have to wait? I hope not as many will be buying the 1DX so hopefully I won't have to wait too long  :D
1DX(pre-order) | 5DII | 40D |14L II | 24L II | 35L | 50L | 85L II | 100L IS | 400 2.8L IS |17-40L | 24-70L | 70-200 2.8L IS | 1.4x | 2.0x |

Ordered mine around 8am EST on the 2nd...
I imagine I'd be in the first batch but maybe not...
I did use Bill Me Later...so I've already paid for the camera...:/

I'll give them to the 22nd to start shipping...before really freaking out.
