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.

hm..what was the time stamp? I received my order confirmation at 9:16pm PST on 3/01 ...

I got mine @ 9:11:22 pm 3/01 :)

No shipping yet...

David KM what time was the timestamp on your confirmation email ?

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.
In the past whenever I ordered from them, I would always get the shipping confirmation/info in the following morning's email.   so if some orders are going out tomorrow people should be getting notification-so let the rest of us know, please.

funny, I did the same, cancelling my 5dmkIII order to pre-order the 1dx first.  I will end up with both bodies eventually but needed to manage my cash flow a bit!  Got too excited ordering both now...or so my wife told me! ;)

The Canon Rumors guy tweeted this evening that B&H confirmed to him that they will get their shipment on March 21st and begin shipping pre-orders on March 22nd.

You can see the tweet here:

3rd tweet down now, but will go further down.

If B&H didn't receive their shipment yet; then how did some of the users on this forum get credit card charges today for the full amount? Isn't the charge supposed to happen when the order ships? Something fishy going on here...  ???

Lots of different information going around. I think I'll just wait it out, hopefully the shipping confirmation email will arrive soon. Good luck guys, try to stay sane. Or sane-ish.

I'm not sure. I'm just reporting the tweet from the Canon Rumors Guy, since not everyone in this thread is following his tweets.

I have an order confirmation email from B&H at 9:32 PM PST on 3/1 and there is no charge on my credit card yet.  The person who reported the credit charge had a email at 8:42 PM PST on 3/1. It is possible B&H got a small shipment already, which allowed them to fill a small number of earliest the pre-orders. Perhaps a much larger shipment is arriving on March 21, which will allow B&H to fill a large number of the pre-orders.

Let's hope that when the shipping starts with the pre-orders that B&H will be a little more open about where the rest of us (those who ordered after the first 24-48hrs) stand.

I Ordered mine on the 12th of March, as an international customer they have taken funds at the time of order. After reading all these posts and speaking with customer service, its safe to say I probably will be waiting weeks, not days to get my camera.

I found citiwideonline.com selling for $3490.00 AU with free express shipping and no TAX / VAT, although they only had 1pc left at the time I ordered today. So i will cancel my order at B&H and hopefully bump up the shipping time for someone else!

Nice to see another user on this forum from Hawaii lol. I got one on next day air as well and received the order confirmation email at 7:34pm HST... which would be 12:34am EST but haven't been charged by B&H as some other user on this forum reported already. Their order went in 18 minutes before mine... but then again a lot can happen in 18 minutes haha! :P

Got this message just now, (I asked to cancel because there were so many people getting 5D3's without pre-ordering from other stores, yet BH could not give any indication on ETA)

"First of all you placed this preorder on 3/10/12, secondly we started accepting pre-orders on 3/2/12, so there are quite a few who pre ordered ahead of you. We are expecting our first shipment later this week. Once that arrives we can see how many ship, and how many will come with the next shipment. Perhaps at that point there will be a better idea of when you will get yours. If you can find it elsewhere and wish to cancel you can do so just let us know."

I cancelled.
