Well, I just checked with my local camera store this afternoon, and I was told that all of the production is going towards the Olympics and that we Canadians and probably the Americans should not expect to see any units until late July at the earliest or after the Olympics in late August. I would hate to speculate on the timing for the release of this camera if it were not for the Olympics. My 0.02¢ FWIW.
Interesting, but worth noting that this conflicts with reports from Crapking and Erik Klein, both earlier in this thread, who reported that B&H expected they may ship before the end of this month (Crapking), and Adorama expected delivery from Canon by the end of June for shipping to customers by 1st week of July.
Don't know who is right, but at least the U.S. stores are telling customers that they expect to be shipping cameras by the first week of July. I hope they are right, and that they are shipping for delivery prior to July 4th. I've got some festivities I would like to shoot with the camera!
