Cancelled my B&H and Amazon pre-orders and I picked one up at Pitman photo in Miami for about $8 more than what I would have paid at B&H with 2 day delivery.
I almost bought one from The Pro Shop For Photographers in West Palm Beach, I called, they told me they had it in stock, $379 + tax, after waiting for it for a while I said what the heck I'll get it so I asked him to hold one for me, drove the 40+ minutes there and there were none, another salesperson came and said "oh yeah we sold the last one last week" ..... >:( Thanks for wasting my time ..... lol
That sucks, next time ask them to hold it for the day. I always do that.

Yes I asked them to hold it and gave them my name, problem is that they actually had none in stock, so nothing to hold, yet they still told me it was in stock and they were holding one for me lol.

I didn't feel like driving 30 min to Norman Camera so i ordered the BG-E11 over the phone today and it already shipped later in the day.
Although i haven't really needed it majorly because i usually get 7000/8000 small jpeg images out of one battery shooting sports events i do like how my 1d3 feels on a monopod with a really right stuff tilt head and that extra portrait button is nice to have. I don't plan to use it for weddings though. I want things to be light weight for that. It looks like i'll be able to shoot a race this weekend already.
