That's awesome. I placed my order at 10 PM PST on March 1, but my camera just shipped last night and will arrive later today

My order was placed 3/2 at 10:30pm EST (def not in on the super early orders) and my order is still showing 'not yet shipped'

How people who ordered after a lot of us have better order statuses at this point is beyond me. 

I'm baffled by all this and it's pretty obvious there is no rhyme or reason to what Amazon is doing on this one.

I'm a lot later in the order cue (around the 10th) so I'm not expecting anything but when checking Amazon today (and I made a username just for this) they are now stating on the order page for the MKIII that it will "usually ship within 1 to 2 months"!

could it be that folks with amazon prime are getting preferential shipping timelines?  no one seems to mention whether or not they order with that perk
M, 5Dc, 1Dx, some lenses, a few lights

I'm an Amazon Prime member and I pre-ordered on March 5th (actually pre-ordered from B&H on the 2nd but cancelled and went to Amazon assuming they'd be more efficient...).

I'm still seeing "Not Yet Shipped" and have been contacting customer support on a daily basis to see if I can get any additional information.  So far I've seen everything from "We get new shipments in each day and are sending them out in the order we received orders" to "This is not a high demand item and we have not received any shipments from the supplier yet."

Your guess is as good as mine, but it just seems like Canon is making sure that they all send out the Kit shipments, but have deprioritized the body-only ones.  Smart move on their part, definitely making me consider buying the lens too if it means I get the camera 1-2 months early.

I JUST got an email from Amazon... it's set to be delivered on 3/29. 

Looks like they finally got off their collective asses over there.

I am an Amazon Prime member... I did order it with next day shipping for $3.99.

Otherwise... if there was any special treatment... I'm not seeing it.
