Yup.

Ordered 5D Mark III (kit) late Saturday night 5/12....after messing with CC, order actually went through on Monday 5/14..and was shipped that evening by Crutchfield.

It should be here Thurs 5/17......85mm shipped separately, and should be here Friday...I got a prime in addition to the kit lens.

I got mine on March (27th), and sent it back a month later.  I bought a used 1D MK IV with 1400 actuations instead for the same price.  I'm buying a D800 to compare them, mine will arrive tomorrow.

Why did you send the 5D Mark III back? Something wrong with it, or you just didn't like it?

Got mine a few days ago - takes some getting used to (the menu coming off a 7D) but overall results are most pleasing.  Majorly impressed with the AWB vs. the 7D AWB - skintones and colors are more exact without a gray scale card.  Simple things like soil (do landscape) are more correct wheras I didn't have to use the WB Shift +/- .
Thanks

I just got mine in yesterday.  And..even though I'd been reading on the manual before I got it...and some books on exposure...whew...when you have it in your hands, it is something else.

I foresee a LOT of time just learning the menus, and tons of shots to learn what does what...but last night I did manage to play on manual, and get a couple of nice shots with depth of field that I wanted...with the soft background, and only my dogs face in profile, was focused clearly.

She's getting older...and I think I'm gonna prize that one already for a long time....

I got a call a few minutes ago. Will be picking mine (with EF 24-105) up today. I've waited 4 weeks since ordering. (Germany)

Just got off the phone with Crutchfield customer service and they verified that the Canon 5D Mark III body and kit are back ordered.  They said they've been getting orders in every couple of weeks to fill existing orders.  They also said that the double rewards points would not apply to this purchase because of the demand.  Bummer!

When I put my order in....they whole time it said mine was out of stock too. I was shocked to see them ship it out basically 2 days later.

So, I think  they tend to get them in a bit more than they advertise.
