I noticed at the bottom of the OneCall 5D3 page it has a link to the EOS 5D Mark III Firmware Version 1.1.2 Update, like it still needs to be updated.  I wonder why these aren't already updated.  Are these the "Fixed" models?

Almost every site selling the Mark 3 has a link to that software update. They probably are "fixed" models, but putting that link up seems to be standard practice.

FYI, I just got an in-stock e-mail notification from:
www.ephotocraft.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=013803142433

I've never ordered from them before, but thought I'd mention it.

I ordered last night from onecall because I got the notification email, but their site was pretty laggy/bland and caused some issues with my bank thus the order was cancelled this morning leaving no hope despite many attempts to straighten things out. :( anyone order from this ephotocraft site before? any good or bad stories?

The units that Cameta Camera were selling last week had a "3" as the sixth digit in the SN.

I spoke to someone that recently purchased from onecall. They are shipping the fixed ones.

Has anyone received a kit from anywhere since the fix?

I also ordered one last night shortly after this was posted here. I just checked the status online and it changed from 'processing' to 'backorder.'  They sure were quick to charge my CC the full $3500 last night though. I knew I should have just kept my Amazon preorder :(

EDIT:

Just got off the phone with a rep (no wait time) and they confirmed that my order will ship today. Apparently orders that were checked out through 'Amazon Payments' are showing up as 'backorder' because they are out of stock on Amazon. False alarm!

The exact same thing happened to me. I paid through amazon, checked my status and saw it said backordered.  I called in a huff because they had charged me already. They assured me that it would ship today.

I was just chatting with a B&H rep and he said they are expecting a shipment by the end of this week and he confirmed that my body only will be in this shipment.
I ordered on april 3.

Update: I, like so many of us ordered one last night, and Onecall is sorting through the orders to match time and inventory.  The manager appears to have placed "back order" on the orders until they determine if they have enough inventory.  They say I'm getting the one I ordered.  I ordered 9:27pm PST.  If you ordered from them I would call them to verify.
