Rebates & BG-E11 Shipping Updates
« on: June 04, 2012, 05:28:48 PM »
Canon Rebates Extended
The Canon rebate program that was set to expire at the end of May has been extended until the end of June. This is the double up savings program if you buy a camera body along with a lens. There are also instant rebates on lens purchases only.

The 5D Mark III isn’t found in stock in too many places, so at least you get an extra month if you’ve been waiting to take advantage of the rebate when buying a 5D3.

Click to go

Visit B&H for the rebate portal.

BG-E11 Shipping Everywhere
I’ve received notifications that B&H and Adorama have begun shipping the BG-E11 to preorder customers.

Sigma Lens Rebates
Sigma has rebates going on until July 31, 2012. Visit B&H for more.

Canon EF 500 f/4L IS II & EF 600 f/4L IS II Availability
Various smaller retailers have received lenses. I know of a couple of 500′s that appeared in Toronto, and I received my 600 today.

I know B&H is expecting a shipment this week, however there is a preorder wait list. They expect the first 2 shipments to cover what is already preordered. I am unsure about the status with Adorama.

B&H: 500 f/4L IS II | 600 f/4L IS II Adorama: EF 500 f/4L IS II | EF 600 f/4L IS II

If you’re a retailer and get a 500 or 600 in stock that isn’t spoken for, please let me know and I can let the readers of CR know.

5D Mark III Stock
Stock of the 5D Mark III is low at the moment. Shipments for the camera should start arriving near the end of this week. I’m waiting to hear from the large retailers.

Woo-hoo!

I can confirm that Amazon still hasn't shipped the bg-e11 and still has zero updates on it.  I know, I know- many of you are suprised.

I ordered mine on 3/30/12 from B&H and my order tracking still lists it as a backorder...I hope it ships soon, my pinky finger is looking for somewhere to rest!

Unfortunatly they don't seem to have this rebate program here in the Netherlands. Bought my 5D3 like 1,5 month ago, together with the 24-105 f/4 lens.
I wonder when Dutch companies will have the BG-E11 on stock and start shipping...who knows..

Regarding Dutch availability: I just received my battery grip and GPS receiver for the 5Dmk3 from Foto Konijnenberg ( http://www.fotokonijnenberg.nl/ ).

I've been using a 1Dmk3 for the past 4 years, so I'm crying tears of joy now, that I can finally attach the battery grip to the 5D!  :)

For those wondering- according to amazon, it has NOT be released:

"I've checked into the battery grip, "Canon BG-E11 Battery Grip for Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera" and this hasn't been released yet and unfortunately, the expected release date is not known."

BG-E11 Badly designed

My best friend just got the grip. I had time to play with it.
My first impression: very uncomfortable and badly designed.
I own a 1D4. There is no way a grip on a small body can feel like the real thing.
It is too wide and flat in the bottom.  The joystick is place too low on the grip and you have to strain your thumb to adjust focusing positions and you lose grip since it's
Uncomfortable to keep your index finger on the shutter and move the joystick.
If you compare the camera's joystick position, which is perfect, to the grip's, it's
Like 1/2" off. It actually sucks.
It also feels plastic and hard.
The battery compartment is cool though. The opening Looks like a 1D and it comes with a AA Bettery adapter
For emergencies. Not bad.
Luckily I am waiting for the 1D X.
