I tend to agree with the comment on lack of communication on B&H's part. I also ordered a 5DMKIII body on 3/2/12 and have not been given any details as of when to expect it. I contacted B&H today since I know that their store will be closed for their holiday from 4/6---4/14, I believe, and wanted to know if I should receive my item before closure. The answer I got was, "I hope so." I've dealt with B&H for the longest time and have always been pleased with their customer service and reliability. However, I do not know who to blame for this one Canon or B&H for the lack of clarity. Furthermore, I thought they would service primary Canon users who have pre-ordered a body instead of shipping complete kit (fulfilling the orders by time and date received)? If one orders a body, chances are that individual is already a Canon user with at least one additional body and several lenses. Off course what matters to them is their profit margin. By so doing they remind me of DTV always offering better deals to new but not existing customers.
