Hmmmm so I wonder if the April 2nd is still another date they will receive a shipment? if so maybe mine will be in it. Does anyone know if they just don't receive shipments during their holiday? There must be some workers maybe receiving shipments or something? If not I feel I might as well just cancel and take the hit for currency exchange and walk into a local store and buy one before my trip to Hawaii in May. Never would have thought that ordering 36 hours after the pre-order became available would put me in the 3rd, 4th, or maybe even 5th shipment. :(

Got an email on the 29th from BH. My delivery date is April 2. I pre- ordered at 9 am on March 2. Can't wait to try out my new lenses.

I heard that too, but I thought it was rather a delivery date of someone instead of a new batch of shipment.

I still hope that they will have a "double batch" after the passover..........

At least I assume there will be another batch Thursday before the passover..

I officially cancelled my order now that Canadian stores came to their senses so maybe someone with patience will get there's a little sooner than they would if I didn't cancel :)

Here in Atlanta, no Best Buy stores will be carrying the 5D3 in the store, you have to order it.  This was learned and verified with a visit to a store that carries the 5D2 and looking at the inventory readout on the BB computer system and looking at the inventory control codes.

I walked into a Best Buy on Sunday, March 25, with a 10% off coupon and a $50 rewards card.  Ordered the camera, the 10% off was honored as it did not exclude Canon DSLR (it did exclude Nikon and Sony), applied the rewards card and was all done for $3165 including tax.   There were 63 in the warehouse at the time.  Now, there are none.

BB called 2 days later and I picked up the camera on Wednesday March 28.



No pre-order

Wow - great price. How much tax do you pay? 10% off of 3500 is 3150, that only leaves $15 for tax.

Best Buy in NY is selling them in store.  You can check inventory on bestbuy.com and enter your zip code.  Not available for shipping, only in-store pick up.  I got mine in Westbury, NY last week and cancelled my B&H pre-order.  Right now the body only is in stock in Valley Stream, NY.  Worth a try to check near you, you may get lucky.

Aish, just ordered yesterday at BH. Probably won't see it until May, makes the kit and sell the 24-105 really tempting

I wonder how far we were bumped up the "body only" list because of cancellations for the kit.
