In Perth Australia $7759 AU (which is a hell of a lot more then 6800 US!)
Hmm weird in Brisbane at Teds store they are still at $7599 which is a bit more reasonable to me.

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.

PW

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)

Hi thanks for the info, just cancel my preorder of the 1dx fromTeds and preorder one from George's. Also placed an order for the 24-70ii. For some reason they say it's available, so yeh just give it a try and who knows, they might really have it instock :D

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 :)

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.

It is the luck of the draw which sales rep is helping. I also got confirmation a while back that I should be high up on the list to receive the camera, but the company policy basically stops them from telling you exactly what number you are on the list. Also, I think the biggest thing here is not where you are on the list, but when B&H will actually receive their shipment of cameras. Did Canon already send out the shipments and the distributors will have it on the 20th, or is Canon sending out the fleet only on the 20th? B&H basically told me they have no control over when Canon sends the cameras...

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?

Yes, he did say he'd never own one.  However, he doesn't own one.  He borrowed/rented I guess.  Maybe that doesn't "count" as owning it.

I called my dealer yesterday - they said Canon told them they'd be getting a shipment on the 24th, but didn't know the size.

I'll believe it when I see it though.  They were told they'd be getting shipments May 29th and June 9th too... :o

Obviously we will know more in 24 hours, but I have been wondering why we haven't yet seen any pictures posted on the CanonRumors main page of boxes and boxes of the 1D-X being readied for shipping (as there were just before the 5D Mark III launch).

Maybe because its just a few boxes here and there :) not enough to cause any excitement. When canon says limited first shipment..they mean limited. :)

In all of my adventures with couriers, policy when dealing with enterprises varies wildly.

But I will certainly be calling them next Monday. :D

1. canon webpage link in the OP, no longer shows 20/6/12 date
2. singapore canon site has an official RRP ($9299) - http://www.canon.com.sg/personal/products/dslrs/eos/eos-1d-x?languageCode=EN <- was this the case previously? (no official pricing on aust canon site)

Thanks for posting those links 4thchicken.

It is great news that it is gradually beginning to appear. I wonder how much stock the shops in Singapore will have and how quickly they will sell out.

Canon HK has not posted its price yet but using the Singapore price it would be around HK$ 56,XXX which is cheaper than I was expecting.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.
