Anyone know how backlogged B&H, Amazon, and the other online retailers are with orders for the 5D III?

If you don't want to wait for B&H, you can always order from Murphy's Camera in Kentucky. They had plenty of stock when I ordered mine last week, and for an extra $75 it was overnighted to me by 10:30AM ;D

If you check the "curious about b&h shipments" thread you will see that nobody that ordered after the 2nd of march has been shipped a camera yet and there are still people that ordered on the first day of availability that have not received theirs yet. I ordered the next Sunday morning and was looking at may or June delivery which was unacceptable for me so I cancelled. Can walk into a local store that has plenty of stock in canada now and pick it up for a reduced price. Not hating on b&h they just had way too many orders to satisfy them all quickly. Not their fault at all.

B&H has another shipment in stock. I just got off the phone with them and they will be shipping my body only today. I put in my pre-order March 2nd around 12:30 central time so it wasn't a brand new order. But for all those with a pre-order, here's a more current reference. Order number was 97606xx.

DeepShadows, were you able to find the Mark III in Canada for less than $3700 before tax? Out of principle I'm tempted to wait it out, as I don't approve of being gouged for buying it in Canada.
