I most certainly agree.  The tax $$ will only go to waste anyway.  Our Gov. Brown the Clown is driving us deeper in debt.  Put it toward a new flash or something 8-)
Thanks

ABT has stock as well (TAX in IL, IN, MI, WI).

I ended up ordering from Beach Camera. Hope they ship it soon.

Never heard of Beach Camera are they pretty reliable? They seem to have a good deal on the 5D MK III bundle with 32gb SD card a 580EX II, 24-105mm and a camera bag. But I think they are also out of stock w/ 5d3. I put an order on adorama they said in a few days they'll get shipment but no exact date.

Yes, I bought in the past from them. They're reliable and ship quickly.

I'm looking to maybe go with Crutchfield....to get their rewards points (will be like $230 worth with purchase of mk3 kit and a prime lens)....free shipping...and they offer 12 mo interest free financing.

You can get the 12 mos interest free at amazon.com......but the rewards points are leaning me to crutchfield.

I never bought from crutchfield. Do you know the website(s) when I can find some reviews?

Just bought today from adorama and shipped today from adorama... email helen at helen@adorama.com and she can help you try to secure one...  I emailed her and she held one until I was able to order.  They are now showing to be backordered...  She's the best.
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

I dunno about any reviews...but they're a reputable site....been in business for decades, catalog only before the internet.

I was very happy with my service, with the exception of the shipment was not signature only, I came home and my camera was left by UPS on the front doorstep. But I ordered, and got it shipped 2 days later, and that delay was due to my CC company wanting to verify with me I'd bought that much. 
I had done phone and web chat with a customer svc guy named Troy, and put his name on my order..and he was watching the order processed...etc.

I used the code I posted here with the rewards system they have there (register for it first before buying) and I now have approx $460 worth of credit, which I'll use for  a free battery grip when they come out, plus maybe most of a 2nd battery.

I''ve had friends that have used them for ages for car stereos....they have a 60 day return policy too I think.

I'm not a shill for them, but just posting that it was the best deal I found with the rewards points thing...and I'm happy with my camera so far.

HTH,

C

Hi,

What is the best place to buy a 5D Mark III right now? I know Canon has start shipping after the light leak fix and I know some are getting their cameras already.

Anybody out there just placed order recently and received the camera already? If so, where did you buy it from? If pre-ordered, how long is the wait? Adorama? Amazon? or BH?

Thanks guys, trying to get one but not sure where to order it from.

check out onecall.com they get stock so often, I got three 5DM3 from them by registering my email in product notification request. they don't have long waiting lists, usually when they receive shipments they appear in-stock (for few hours though).
