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).
Onecall is a good store, they no longer have Pro Photographers in their brick and Mortar store (Huppins), but they are still a big cut above Best Buy. They are about 20 miles from me, so I shop there often. I can try the gear, and get web prices.
There is also a old fashioned camera store about 35 miles from me where the people who work there are Photographers. Its called Camera Corral in Couer D Alene, ID. I ordered a D800 from them on 4/19, and it arrived Monday 5/14. I received e-mails every step of the way, so I knew exactly when Nikon shipped it, etc.
I'll be buying most of my gear there in the future. They also have a camera and lens repair shop. They will do mail order business, but their main focus is on local photographers. Its a small store, so they do not stock all the high end lenses and Camera bodies, however, they order them for you and that worked well for me. As much as I like Adorama, One Call, and B&H, I'd like to keep the local old fashioned camera stores around.
