Ordered mine on the 6th as well but canceled and got one from a local store instead.  Thought I'd be in the third wave, but also thought that I might be getting it by the end of this coming week. Hope yours gets shipped out soon.  B&H will be closed from Apr 3-9 for Passover.  I would hope that they would really make an effort to get everyone's orders out by then.  The only hang up would be if they didn't have the inventory-which I would think they should have given the column of business they do.
Happy owner of the 5D Mark III, 24-105 f/4L and other L lenses

I just got off the phone with Customer Service at B&H

"All orders are put into the system together. They are NOT lumped by 5DMIII so any speculation on when people will be getting their order is imaginary."

"It appears that all orders are either already filled or will be filled tomorrow."

IF you ordered a grip or flash with your camera, they are holding the order until everything arrives unless you selected 'ship when available'.

Also, I asked if I could add one, two or three to an order for delivery this week and they said "Sure, how many do you want?"

I talked with customer service at B&H this morning also.  I was told "we will be getting some 5DIII bodies in about a week, but we do not know how many or exactly when"

So going by this, when they say ALL orders...they even mean orders placed, oh I don't know, JUST last week (aka mine)?  I spoke with them today, and all I got was an order number.  Judging by how everyone posts the last 6 of their order number, I'll state mine is 5620xx (not sure how much help that info is).  Incredibly excited for this camera.

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.

I saw that. I really hope they will be able to get it out before then. Thanks! I just like the fact that I don't have to pay 7.75% tax in CA. So i hope it's worth the wait. Got some jobs coming up that it would be extremely useful on compared to my 60d for lowlight wedding videography...

I spoke with them a short while ago about my 3/7 order and was told that I will not be in the next queue and they could not say when I could be queued. So I just ordered the kit and that I will get tomorrow.

B&H wouldn't give any possible delivery date for the MK3 body.  Their Cust. Service did verify that no order will be shipped during the Passover Holiday 4/6----4/14.  Therefore, I'm giving them until 4/2 to cancel my order.   Having used BillMeLater as a method of payment, my account has already been charged.  I also lost a month of the six-month grace period, and have already paid $1,200 for a camera I don't have.  Will cancel so my acct could be credited accordingly and I could purchase it elsewhere.

I was order # 689xx on Feb 4th.  Watching the order status and this CR thread every day was getting to be a drain on me.  I cancelled from B&H and ordered the body from markertek.com.  I should have the body by Thursday with 2nd day air.

Just got off the phone with B&H customer service, and the gentleman said "there's a good chance your camera will ship next week if we get in the number we think we're getting."  My order is 558xx.  Hope this helps!  Keeping my fingers crossed it ships!

But still waiting for them to actually ship from B and H. Hopefully we will start to get shipping confirmations soon.
