Strange, I thought the preorder started in March 2012... and Calumet does not even have one "1d" body on their site....

i don't know when exactly pre-orders started, but one place i have a pre-order with confirmed that i placed my order january 13...

Berger Bros, NY as early as January, 8th with a $1,000.- deposit, but they couldn't guarrantee delivery with the first shipment, so I cancelled with them and ordered with B&H within an hour them making the 1D X available for preorder on March 14th.

Yes, and when you look at the standard shipping cost of $619.81 this is even more interesting....

It seems to me that Swiss online shops such as Light + Byte or Digitec have stopped offering older 1D models such a the 1D Mark IV or 1Ds Mark III. I am actually hopeful that we may be very close to at least a planned launch date.

Hey there this is my first post I have been hooked on Canon Rumours forums ever since I ordered my 1 DX back in October. I have followed all the doom and gloom surrounding the release of the 1dx, with talk of a delay untill September. I would just like to tell everybody out there that I got an email and a phone call from Calumet yesterday to confirm that my 1DX has been dispatched to there Manchester store via fed-ex!! I am due to pick it up at 2 o'clock today Saturday 23rd June sooo excited! I am not a professional or cps member just an enthusiast who ordered last October Calumet have  been fantastic with me, they only took full payment off me on Wednesday and got me the camera for Saturday! So hang in there if you have ordered one it is on the way!!!

Saturday has come and gone. Pl pl update! Or did someone pull a fast one on someone?

Now go to OpticsPlanet and they don't have it.  This has been like this for weeks now.

I've talked to them on the phone and they don't actually have any in stock, as you can imagine I was slightly frustrated that they did list it on amazon as being available..

They can order it from the manufacturer and the sales rep said he expected that order to be filled by July 15th.

Opticsplanet have been listing this camera as "in stock" since it was made available for pre-order on B&H, Adorama and Amazon. They also advertised that it should ship between 5 - 7 days of ordering it. I contacted them and told them it is false advertising - but every person who answered my emails just ignored this and answered with stupid answers like : "I don't see your order, what is your question?"

I also reported this to Amazon, and nothing has been done about it. You also can't write a review on the company unless you've purchased from them.

All I can say is that I will stay away from Optics planet just because of the way they do business. I don't care if they really do sell good products - it all comes down to ethics.

Yeah, I would think that based on what they are saying that their credibility is in serious question? ;)

Maybe someone can answer this question.  If Canon has, in fact, distributed this camera to specified folks in preparation for the Olympics, why hasn't someone taken the camera and done some serious work in evaluating it?  DPReview, I would think, would have gotten one to evaluate by now.....just wondering....I ordered mine back in December from Hunts and just pre-paid the entire amount so that I could go on the 'A' list, which has me #10 to receive my camera when they get them....they are not predicting when they will get them but they did say that they think that they will have them soon, like by July.

Absolutely a good point. I suspect there is more talk than cameras out there.

The UK has got it, Asia has got it…
I just attended a shoot yesterday and saw 3 1DX being used by regular folks like myself who don't shoot for a living..
My friend has got his the day it arrived so..i don't think it's just for Olympic shooters..somehow that sounds like an excuse from Canon…
Anyways, some camera porn

I'm guessing because people are full of crap.
