Adorama just authorized my card (for $3449, strange, maybe they did $50 orginally?). Order is showing Pending but I guess it's coming!  :)

Yeah, they also just charged mine for $50 less - must be the balance + original hold.

I'm a 12:41am EST 3/2 Body-only order.

Congrats guys, a little patience paid off. I'm still waiting on B and H, but I expect I'll hear something soon.

Something's up....
« Reply #33 on: March 21, 2012, 03:39:56 PM »
I ordered less than a minute after the camera went up for pre-order.  Had the first confirmation email of anyone I know of based on what's been posted online.

Card has not been charged.  Status remains "pending."  Really unhappy.

Yes, that sounds a bit odd.  Have you tried calling them and asking what is going on?

Maybe (just speculating here) they got a very large number of cameras - enough to fill all the preorders placed in the first few days - and are processing the orders in batches according to shipping methods, not in strict order# ... meaning the people with the slowest shipping get processed first ...

That's possible.  I ordered with the slowest shipping (free) but it's one day to me.  Maybe it's by geographical location.

I just canceled my pre-order with Amazon. I went back to the store I purchased my first 5D3 from and picked up a second unit with the kit lens. Horn Photo of Fresno has them just sitting on the shelf.

I got a call from American Express today about fraudulent charges in New York for $3499....had to tell them it was me buying my 5d mkIII. Then I called Adorama to make sure the transaction went through. I did one day shipping and it should arrive at my doorstep tomorrow.

I pre-ordered a few minutes after the pre-order page came online btw.

Adorama order will ship today or tomorrow. Not ordered till the afternoon on March 2nd, so the first batch will be pretty generous, it seems. Status still says pending, but found out when they tried to charge my card. CS was VERY nice.
