Pre-ordered 5D3 w/24-105 kit from Amazon on March 2nd at 9:30AM PDT.  As of today (3/18) shipping estimate is Monday, April 2nd, with delivery to California between 6-9 April.  All looks well. 

While waiting I downloaded a copy of the 5D3 manual and am busy reading away.  I'm finding there to be a lot of similarities between the 5D3 and my 7D, which is not too surprising.  Should help my learning curve.

What local shop near you has it in stock?

Found a place showing 1-2 days shipping for the 5D Mark 3 kit, so cancelled my Amazon order and ordered with the other location. Lost my free 1-day shipping, but looks more likely to ship.

Well it's almost Tuesday and still no updates my local shop said they would have them Thursday around 2pm. If Amazon don't do something soon I might just go pick mine up at the shop and pay the hefty tax

Ordered from Amazon March 2nd @ 12:19 EST. Still no email about estimated ship time.

How are people who ordered after me getting a shipping date? Does my super shipping saver selection screw me over in the preorder line somehow??

Best I can tell the only people with estimated shipping dates ordered kits. I've yet to see anybody that ordered just the body have any sort of confirmation.

There was one thread started where the OP said they talked to Amazon and they gave him details on his body only order, and I'm not in anyway disputing their claims, but no one else has been able to get any sort of information.

Your shipping method should have 0 effect on your place in queue, only in how long it takes to get from warehouse to your house.

Yes, this was me. I was told Friday when I spoke to a rep at Amazon that my body only would ship Monday and arrive Tuesday. I have since called Amazon and they do not know why I was told that, nor do they have any estimated ship date for my order. Sorry for the confusion.
