5D Mark III is in-stock!!
« on: March 13, 2012, 05:21:04 AM »
Someone just posted this in another forum, he took the picture in a camera store in China.
You guys who ordered from Amazon or B&H shouldn't wait much longer.
The seller said the retail price for body only is 20800RMB which is $3287 according to today's exchange rate.

CR: "There was a lot of confidence from a couple of the retailers that initial preorders would be filled very quickly and that Canon had a lot of initial inventory of the camera."

Boy do I hope this is true! 9 days and counting! ;D
Happy owner of the 5D Mark III, 24-105 f/4L and other L lenses

Interesting - I had read somewhere that the initial shipments would be bodies only and that the kits would perhaps be delayed until June - that is good news.

Music to my ears....I put my pre-order through BH at 9AM california time. I'm not sure if I'm lucky enough to receive 5D III in the 1st shipment. Even though I don't have any big events coming, but still I want that 5D III in my hand NOW NOW NOW :o :o :o

China always seems to get them first.  They have a embargo date to release them, but it is usually ignored.

US sellers stick to the embargo date, because its not ignored by Canon North America.
