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...

100% crop of the previous image... The actual size was 8MB, too big for the forum limit of 4MB

1Ds3 ISO1600 = 1DX ISO12800  :o

Exactly! I have to shoot indoor sports and never seem to have time to set up lights so I often have to shoot at super high ISOs. Most high school gyms in my area are extremely dark. I am often pushing it with my 1D MK IV at ISO 8,000 at f/2.8 just to get a shutter speed of 1/400 sec. If I want a higher speed I often have to shoot with my 85mm f/1.2 II which lets me get shots under the basket and the 3-point line if I do enough cropping.

And yeah that seems to be going too far it but a little noise reduction and I still get an ok photo.

From what I have seen with the 1DX I should be able to get a rather clean photo up to about ISO 25k. I'm also excited to try the camera with the new 600EX-RT.

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?

Wooow! Amazing picture!
The detail is incredible.

I have now only the EF 24-105mmL f/4, EF 50mm f/1.4 and the EF 85mm f/1.8 all with the 5D Mark II. My only complain to go crazy to buy the 1DX is to think that with the difference and a little bit more I can get a 70-200 F2.8L II IS and a 24-70 F2.8L

My pictures are basically Studio Shooting, wedding, Boudoir and travel landscapes/architecture.

What do you think?

I did as well.  How do they know if you are a CPS member?  Did you have to tell them?  I am a Platinum member.

Hey Mark if you are on a Mac using Photoshop try NeatImage.com. The best NR plug in... Works very well and 10 times faster than the others... I also have a 1D IV...

No, B&H didn't ask me... I just mentioned it cause I heard on one the forums that CPS members had "preference"...
I hope we both do :)

I think that you are right. Is a very good advice. that plus the grip and I am sure that I will be very happy. I think that the 70-200 F2.8L II IS is a must with enough budget.

Thanks!!!

I'm on a PC and still using Noise Ninja, it is starting to seem a bit outdated but I haven't tried any other noise reduction software really. I'll take a look to see if they have a trial for PC.

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 :)
