My wife, always looking to save a buck, found the camera "in stock" and for $3379 from

http://www.rythercamera.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=42083

The reseller rating appeared more favorable than non... any thoughts if it's credible or not? 

Interesting.  Dont know them but the price is attractive!

+1

Dell seems to run under the radar but they do carry Canon stuff.  I ordered one when everyone else was out of stock and it arrived in Juneau, Alaska 2 days later.  Not too shabby.

Thanks for the tip.  I never thought Dell was selling Canon.  Will check them out.

does anyone have any news if canon are looking into the varied problems with certain bodies that have been coming out? i wonder if sworting these issues out could temporarily make supply limited. It makes little sense to keep sending out faulty units only to end up having to replace them

Not sure they have acknowledge any of them (or would).  I would assume production is going full steem right now.   If they make change, it would probably included in batches shipping in a few weeks but would doubt they would hold shipping current production for any of the reported bug...

I ordered at Adorama on the 4th of April and I got an email that says it's packed, don't know what that means since they are close for the Passover, means I will cancel my B&H pre order, which i did on the 14th of March. I did call Adorama on April 3 and spoke to one of the sales people(Mike F) he was awesome enough to give me a heads up that they're pre orders are mostly covered and if you place one you'll likely get yours within the month of April, I could've gotten one locally but taxes are about the same cost for some Pocket Wizards.
