Cancel your order and purchase it from Adorama, this is my first time using them, I ordered on saturday and it was shipped today. It would have been shipped the day I ordered had it not been for their holiday... If you order it from them tomorrow, you'll more than likely see it before the week is over.

Do this, I saw they got a shipment in over Passover, ordered yesterday, shipped today and cancelled my BH order.

Yeup, we have two coming from Adorama tomorrow.  Shipped today.  $90 for over night shipping isn't so bad when you spend so much on a camera.  Should be here by 10:30am!  :-)

I still think paying $90 for shipping when you can have it for free is insane. Unless getting it sooner enables you to make money in that couple days you would have waited, then of course, its totally worth it! :)

Let's just say we wanted to play with them before learning them while shooting a wedding this coming weekend.  Well worth the money, especially if we end up having issues with them, we'll know in advance and can use our "backups".

True, but couldn't have ordered them a couple days sooner to save $180? I don't know your situation so i was just curious. I'm just about the most impatient person you'll ever meet, so its amazing that I didn't pay for rush shipping myself.

In fact, my wife is, at this very moment, having some pretty major contractions. Im going crazy waiting for this baby. I'm super happy I have my 5d3 for this epic event! :D :D :D I have an idea for a photo you guys on here will like. Fingers crossed that this happens tonight or tomorrow!

Well, couldn't order a few days earlier.  We also had trouble finding someone with stock until the end of last week.  We tried to buy local, but that just didn't happen.  It was $90 total, $45 each.  :-)  I also probably misread Adorama's notes about the shipping, but I wanted to make sure we had them in time to practice with them before the big day.  It would be worthless to learn a new camera on a job you can't reshoot. 

Oh, and my wife was totally on board.  She made me push the submit button.  haha!

Congratulations on the new baby!  A suggestion, have a friend bring you some taco bell really fast because this will be the last time you get to eat for the next 6 months.  Oh, and go be with your wife and get off the forum.  Tell her we said hi!

Ok! $90 TOTAL is much more reasonable. You scared me.

Thanks you, and I'm going! I swear. Shes right here next to me, so its not like I'm just letting her labor alone. lol.

Expect photos soon. :D

PS We had taco bell yesterday. When we found out she was pregnant, we had for our first dinner pasta with PREGO sauce. When we have the baby, we are having BABY BACK RIBS. :)

Looks like I have to check these forums more often. Adorama is now out of stock today. I guess I'll keep waiting for my order to be filled through B&H.

I ordered from Adorama on the 11th and my 5D MkIII should be here tomorrow.
