Canon Australia put out a date for the grip foe the first time today - late May also. (On Facebook site)

AARRGGHH!!

I actually called B&H yesterday morning with an "Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?" sort of thing. The rep had absolutely no information beyond the "This is a new product and we don't have any information from the manufacturer yet about when it will ship."

Canon, oh Canon. Why have you been wasting so much of your resources on making happy those who do nothing but take underexposed, unfocused macro shots of the insides of lens caps when you could instead have been making those of us who want the damn grip happy?

<sigh />

Shocking, simply shocking!  I suppose that delays the L plate from RRS until they get their hands on the grip!  I just don't seem to be able to use the 5Diii without a grip with these hands!

Unless I'm missing something, these are all non-US sites reporting this.  Has anyone seen / heard information from Canon USA?  Perhaps there's a difference in the availability between countries.

I'm a bit groggy right now and don't feel like scouring the interwebs myself so I'm kind of passing the buck a little bit...

Wow Canon, I was hoping to jump up from my 7D in time for wedding season but without a grip, limited raw support, and a handful of minor but well documented issues, I think i'll be shooting with the 7D for a couple more months at least. I'm so glad now that I did not preorder.

So everybody is assuming a Japanese web page is the definitive source on release date?  Assuming the quality control on the web page is perfect?

I seriously doubt it considering the 5DIII was released in several countries before the US.

Am I the only one seeing why this is happening? Add the this to the light leak issue, and you should understand that they rushed the 5D3 release. Probably due to panic over the D800.

Not to worry about RSS. They have well-placed friends in Canon corporate, and have had their grip for a while. Indeed, at this point, I'm expecting to get the plate before the grip...right about now is when they were guessing / hoping to start shipping.
