Same from my vendor. Got a call that my camera was shipping and 10 mins later another that Canon wanted all inventory returned and to give no explanation to the customers.  The vendor did say they have never seen this happen before.  :o

I actually just sent Craig a message about this.  Beach Camera called me this morning and cancelled my order as well.  He said that Canon pulled the shipment and it may be related to a recall.  The Beach associate said the Canon rep wasn't clear as to what happened but mentioned that there would be an announcement next week if necessary.  I guess I have to wait a little longer for my camera :(.

As i mention on another thread already, on second thought, could any of these delays have anything to do with how manufacturing was hit last year in asia for camera companies?  I mean if they had to setup shop in a different plan, maybe things are not that smooth at first?

The posters list specific stores, it should be easy enough to confirm or debunk the thread by making a phone call or two.

I've been viewing this site for almost a year now...there's another post on potn as well.  This isn't some troll post.  Why would I go out of my way to say that I'm not going to be getting my much anticipated 5d3 if it wasn't true :(

I am sure this topic will get more airtime soon because this would be of interest to many to understand why shipment are call back.  I hear the comment about new members, but on the flip side if i had ordered a 3500 camera and it got delayed or called back, it would prompt me to write about it as well...

Lets see if other members were i mpacted by this also...

That's not a very convincing, you know. It's like saying "I am not lying".

Admins can see IP sig and know if it is the same person. Usually that's how I get them as a MOD, but there are other tricks via admin panel.

If there ever is a recall, it would be no big deal for me. . . . as long as they do it after wedding season haha

Obviously, it's being recalled because the RRS camera plate doesn't fit properly.   :P
