Thanx,

Yes, 4/22 order from J&R came in. And even some people who ordered from them as late as last night had them ship today already.

Hey LetTheRight..did you contact August and get it for the $4169 price I had posted?  Mine shipped form J&R on Thursday 2 day air so will have it Monday.  They got 40 kits in stock on Wed. evening.

So Cayenne they may still have a few left.  If you call J&R Order By Phone: 800-806-1115 ask for August at ext 1041 and tell him you saw my note here on Canon Rumors and request it for $4169..he will honor the price.  Tell him Anthony sent you.  I've not seen any web site discount this.  he told me a few folks already called him and he did honor the price as promised.

Good luck!
Thanks

I called J&R they quoted me 4199 but August also gave me a discount on LR4. He's gonna call me back as soon as they have it in stock to finalize the sale.

I just pulled the trigger just now...on the 5D Mark III and the Canon 85mm 1.8 lens from Crutchfield.

I found a good deal there too....with their rewards system.
For signing up , I got 150 points...
The kicker is, I found out from searching the internet...that they also have a special going right now, if you put in a promotional code, you get DOUBLE REWARD POINTS through the end of April.

The code, if anyone is interested is:  3A923

Now...that gives one point for every dollar spent. So, double purchase points, plus the 150 for signing up, gives me about 9470 points.

If you cash out a bunch of them at once (go to the site to see the breakdown) which I intend to do, you get 5% cash value for those points, so, I basically can now buy $473.50 worth of stuff from them.

Essentially, I've at least bought the new battery grip and a spare battery for FREE.

I also used a CC that gives me 1% back for purchase..so, I get like $47 cash back from that.

Now...I just get to sit and wait for them to get stock....but hey, anticipation is half the fun, eh?

I've waited for about 5.5 months since I started looking for this...I can wait a few more weeks.   :P

Quick update.

I ordered my 5D Mark III from Crutchfield last Saturday  05/12/2012

On Sunday, I'd gotten one of those 'fraud alert' things from the bank that has my credit card...I had to notify them that it was in fact...me.
I'd called Crutchfield to let them know this..and to keep my order up.

I confirmed that it was me with the CC again today...and it appears the Crutchfield is shipping my 5D Mark III with the kit lens today...

Actually...the 85mm is on backorder with them...but should be in tomorrow or so..and will ship after that.

Crutchfields' site still shows out of stock..but apparently they have them and can ship almost immediately with orders?

I'll report back on how many rewards points I end up with on this..since (per my last post on this thread) I found that code that gives double rewards points....

I had ordered from Amazon a month ago and it still showed "not in stock", so on Sunday night (5/13) I cancelled it and placed a new order with Adorama for a 5D3 (body-only) and a 17-40/4L combination (to get the $120 Canon discount).  The order shipped Monday afternoon (5/14).

5DIII (soon!) | 7D | 35/1.4L | 10-22 | 17-40/4L (soon!) | 24-105/4L IS | 70-200/2.8L IS II | 50/1.4 | 85/1.8
