I think I saw on another thread that it was due before or around the end of April.

Edit- April 30th. Search for BG-E11 and you'll find the thread.  :)

I think the "April 30" date is a literal interpretation of Canon's "end of April" estimate in their press release. I'm hoping it'll be released before then.

I am hoping it will be released WAY before EOM next April. But one could only hope  :-\

Well it's the middle of May, I received an email from CPS this morning that they do not have a release date for the grip yet.

I think they are testing it with the 5Dmk4 so it will be released when the 5Dmk4 i launched....
Yes, i said mk4....becuase it does seems like the grip will never get released! I too am waiting impatiently...

I read somewhere that Canon would start shipping them on May 15th, today. Anyone hear anything?
I believe it was an interview with that guy Chuck W.........? from Canon USA.

See my post above, as of 5/14 CPS didn't have a release date, so I rather doubt that the 15th is a valid date.

My local dealer here told me that Canon told him to expect them next week.  So dont know if that was just to appease the masses or if it's true.
