Nevermind. Mine just shipped out yesterday evening! B&H usually e-mails me a shipping confirmation on all my orders, but not this time. Weird.

Nobody seems to have received a shipping notice for the 5D3 shipments.

I have my camera in hand, but no notice.

B&H still lists both the 5D Mark III body and kit as: "Pre order. Released in limited qty" on their web site.

Yup. No shipping confirmation email from B&H although it has definitely shipped. Mine is actively tracking in the UPS network.  It is on a truck and out for delivery today! ;D

Just a little reference for ya...
I was told by customer service that I will not be part of the first shipment...My order number (placed 3/2 at 8:30am est) is a 576xx number...
So needles to say.. if you are over that... you are in the second batch at the earliest.

He only went on to say that they are expecting their next shipment the first week of April.

It was shipped overnight from B&H yesterday ... made it as far as down the street (in CA) today then mysteriously shipped back to NY!
:o >:( :'(

Now that's what I call overnight shipping money well spent ... Not!  ::)

UPS Epic FAIL!

Buy.com seems to still have stock for body only 5DIII's.

Just called them and it looks like I'll have mine early next week. :) I'll cancel my B&H pre-order once I have the tracking number.

Got the tracking number. It'll be here Tues! B&H will be canceled.

It appears that the 5D Mk III is a bit too expensive for most New Zealanders.  I went into two camera shops in Auckland today and they just had stacks of them available for sale off the shelf.   No queues here...  but who wants to pay US$4200?  I handled one for a little while - it feels so sturdy and well built - can't wait to buy my own.
5D Mark III, 40D, 1V.  Bunch of strobes, lenses and other bits.
They're, their, there, it's, its, too, to, than, then, you're, your.  One lens, two lenses, the lens's aperture.

So I ordered mine from B&H on 3/6 body only, kind of late I know, I wasn't expecting to be in the first shipment anyway. Thursday night my card was charged for the amount 3,499 but when I check my order on the website it says that it's backordered. They specifically told me that I wouldn't be charged until it shipped. Has this happened to anyone else??

Thanks

I got my order confirmation from B&H on March 2, 2012 12:34am EST. This was within the first hour of the camera showing up on B&H's site. The last five digits of my order number were 528##.

Hey Guys,
  Why don't you goto Crutchfield?  They seems to be getting regular shipments of Canon 5D Mark III now.  I ordered it on 3/21/2012 and they ship it out on 3/23/2012.  They also told me that they will be getting more in on a regular basis.   With their 5% credit back program, it makes buying from them an even better deal.

Hi folks. Been lurking since August, when I bought my first DSLR, a Rebel t2i. Now ordered a 5DM3 to learn FF.

I ordered my 5DM3 + lens kit on 03/15/2012 from B&H. They shipped it 03/22, but said I won't receive it until 03/29. Most likely due to my standard shipping, and it coming from New York to California where I live.

I am done with B&H and their lack of communication.  I ordered early on 3/2 and have no idea if they will be getting additional bodies this week or if I will get trapped by their closing for a week next Friday.  I can get no information from them.

My order number is 559xx

I will be cancelling a 1Dx pre-order as well.
