Live chatted with B&H today, they have no way of giving priority to CPS platinum members unfortunately, but I was told I am high on the list with an order # xxxxx86xxx ending with low numbers ;)
They suggested possible delivery by my next project, June 28.    One can only hope :)

Just asking, you have 10 numbers in total? I have 9, does that mean I will get it around the same time frame as you? =D

clicstudio said "I placed my pre-order on B&H on March 13... That's exactly 3 months today!"

I thought the first day they had them was the 14th when I ordered mine.  My order # is 10198871xx, what is yours?
Oops I made a mistake. I preordered on the 16th. Order #10199120xx

You where lucky, the representative I chatted with told me is against company policy to give such information. And there is no priority other than your place on the cue which won't discuss either  >:( >:( >:(

I preordered the morning or the 13th, so I hope I'm not to down on the cue.

By the time you pay freight with insurance & GST the difference between 7,800 & 6,800 is not the great.

Hmm weird in Brisbane at Teds store they are still at $7599 which is a bit more reasonable to me.

Yes, this corresponds with what I've been told by Canon CZ a week ago - 1D X will be available by the end of June. Finally.
The question is: to buy or not to buy? :)
I have a big doubts about what to buy... 5D Mark III Vs 1DX....
I know... some of you will say: "If you don't know the differences, you must to buy the 5D Mark III for sure"

I don't care the FPS, but the rest of features of the 1DX are great... But with my budget, I can buy a nice lens if finally decided to buy the 5D Mark III...

I know that is annoying thing but... what is your opinion?

what lenses do you currently have?

The 5D III is an amazing camera. It might not have all the custom functions of the 1D X but you can't go wrong with the price... I was shooting Architectural photos with it today from my boat, using a Canon 70-200 F2.8L II IS and the photos I got were amazing!
All shots were 1/500 F8.0 ISO 100... Camera has the BG-E11 which is not the best but usable... Actually after 2 hours trying to stand on a moving boat, the grip was the only complain I have...
The focusing was lightning fast, the viewfinder is huge and 100% and the LCD, even on bright sun light was great to look at...
The 5D III is for sure the best Canon camera ever, until the 1D X, of course, but still a great camera.
If your budget allows, get the 5D with the grip and you still have money left to buy 2 nice "L" lenses... I would get a 70-200 F2.8L II IS and a 24-70 F2.8L :)

Good luck!

Check out this sample of what I did today...
Weren't you the guy that said he would never own/buy a 5D Mark III a little while ago on another post?
Canon 1DX, Canon 5D Mark III, EF 85mm F1.2L II USM, EF 100mm F2.8L IS USM Macro, EF 16-35mm F2.8L II USM, EF 24-70mm F2.8L II USM, EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS II USM, 600EX-RT Speedlites, Profoto Studio Strobes, and a whole lot of boat load of light modifiers.

It's much closer in price than first meets the eye. That Ted's price includes GST @ 10%. So $6800 plus $680 = $7480. There's very little in it really.

Sydney must have it easier then, I manage to get a 1d-x on order for $7199 at George's, Sydney. It's $7280 at Foto Riesel, and $7399 at Digidirect. All CPS approved dealers (Most importantly)
