Contacted again the dealer (in Luxembourg) where I had placed my pre-order 5 weeks ago and he still didn't expect anything arriving in the next couple of weeks !!!

Really got fed up with waiting and ordered my 5D3 from DigitalRev in Hong Kong.

Total price: 3162 euro (including shipping, customs tax, local Luxembourg warranty). 63 euros more expensive than my pre-order but still a good price and at least I'll have a camera by the end of next week  :)

BeneLux including France seem to be the last countries scheduled for the 5D3 shippings..

FNAC customer service called me today. They told me shippings won't start until June....
I purchased a lens on a Hong Kong website, I had to pay taxes to get the package from the deliverer (around 70 euros)..

I'll wait.......

I've got my 5D Mk3 with 24-105 in Switzerland from a Saturn store three weeks ago. They said that they ordered many from Canon Switzerland, but they just got one single piece (which is now mine   ;)  )
They sold it for 4199.- CHF    (about 3500€)

I've heard that they had some stock in the Saturn shop in Thun, but it seems that the price increased to about 4500.- CHF...

Hey there,

I also called them yesterday to know if they had any news on the availability but they honnestly told me that Canon themselves told them that they simply didn't know when they will start shipping to Luxembourg... Canon...

As for my German shop, I e-mailed them yesterday also to tell them that if I didn't receive a clear date of delivery untill the 1 of June (yes, I'm still patient and kind), that I would like my money back.

I hope that they are kind enough to reimburse my money so I can purchase it somewhere else.

Need my money back... Or my camera...

Good to know about your store in Hong Kong, I was thinking, if I manage to get my money back, to maybe order mine from B&H, but I'm afraid of receiving a 300 euros taxes invoice from FedEx or whatever delivery company I will choose.

Anyone ordered from the States here? Any information on the tax delivery fees?

Tell me please Antoon when you will receive it if everything is ok, I may buy mine there too, fed up of waiting. :)

Thanks!

Mine has been shipped. Yay :) Seems like there is a batch coming to Scandinavia around the beginning of June.

Hi Lily,

DigitalRev is apparently a well-known bric and mortar shop in Hong Kong. An Australian friend already ordered there and had no issues, so everything should be alright.

I explicitly asked them about customs duties and they replied that it is already included in the price and that they pay for it.

I'll drop a line when it arrives next week.

Hello everyone,  from Switzerland

Here things are starting to move a little bit.
I asked my store for my 5DIII and he told me that he received one today but it was allready preordered and shipped today to the costumer.

I'm the 4th on the list, so it's really frustrating.

Another online store has it in stock but much more expensive (about 700$ difference from my order):
http://www.digifuchs.ch/index.php?advised_product=15308

Another vendor told me that Canon Switzerland are hesitating to buy more of 5DIII's,
and that they are shipping not more that 5-6 units per day i suppose.
5D MK III / EF 16-35mm f2.8 L USM II / EF 24-70 f2.8 L II /EF 70-200mm f2.8 L / Extender 1.4 / EF 35mm f2 IS / EF 50mm f1.4 USM / Sigma 85mm f1.4

Obviously not my distributor since I still have no news from him! ;D

It's really a big joke over here to manage to get one of these.

Big shooting tomorrow morning and still no expectation of receiving my camera anytime soon. :-\

Have a nice week-end guys. ;)

FINALLY !!!

Browse the web, find small retailers ! They are probably hiding boxes..

After waiting for more than 5 weeks, I had no news from one of the biggest tech store in France.. but I never really stopped  browsing the web... and I finally found a small store (in my own town!) having a body for the exact same price.. Sooooo lucky !

Sorry for those who are still waiting...

In Rome, Italy, on my local reseller, 3 5d Mark III boxes lie on the shelf unsold since 2 weeks (when mine arrived)

Too many bad rumors in the past weeks, too high the sale price (in Italy), not a real big improvement from Mark II.

Why did you not order in Belgium or Germany?
