It appears that they prioritize larger markets over smaller markets. That makes sense for me. My only problem is that I live in Switzerland and that is a pretty small place, so I guess here we are kind of out-of-focus for Canon.

They probably sent them by boat  ;D ;D ;D

I buy my gear from a Swiss web site called www.digifuchs.ch very competitive prices and they also have the 5D3 body only available.

There should be no worries, by the time 5DmkIII will be widely available in Europe the 5DmkIV will have been announced  ;D ;D

Even digifuchs have no stock at this moment, anyway they are one of the most expensive for the 5D iii. And why can they have it and none othe others can? See toppreise.ch

I'm in the UK. I phoned up Jacobs in Leicester early last week, and was told to pre-order to guarantee late June delivery - they were getting 2 a week, and had 7 pre-orders.

Anyhow, they got a whole crate in this week - fulfilled all their pre-orders, asked me to come in and get mine, which I did. They had in addition, about 4-5 extra lying around, not assigned to customer orders. I checked a few serial numbers, and they were all xxxx3xxxx stock - i.e. not reworked, but fresh made.

So clearly, large stocks are now coming through. I guess in a week or two these will reach all corners of Europe.

Unless, of course, Canon are revising pricing in the Eurozone, 'cos of the dropping Euro exchange rate, and holding back stock. But that wouldn't affect Norway, Switzerland, etc., who avoided that particular folly.

Anyone who lives in the UK can order the 5d mk3 with the 24-105 f4 kit lens from warehouseexpress and the good news is they are in stock..

Hello there,

I would agree to this and the previous comments about the UK having so much in stock because it's such a huge market, but personally mine comes from Germany and I don't think it is a small country and market for Canon, like Switzerland or Luxembourg may be...

Anyway, still no news for me, glad to see that some of you are receiving your order...

I'll keep waiting...  :-\
