I received the answer from B&H:

"Hello Michael, my name is Alvin L.

Thank you for contacting the Customer Service Department at B&H Photo Video and Pro Audio.

Unfortunately we don't have an expected delivery date yet for your backorder as it is backordered by the manufacturer. As soon as we receive it in stock we will promptly ship it to you. Once the order has been shipped we will notify you via e-mail. I apologize for this delay and any inconvenience it has caused you.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with."

I very sad  :'(

same response I got. Quite tired of waiting, I will be in HK next month and if BH still doesnt ship it out then I will snag one up in HK, seeing that they already have stocks there.

I have contact in HK they yet no have in stock.

mm maybe not right now, but probably in the next few weeks or so. At least I think they will have stock earlier than in US.

He he. HK have 1DX, but price!!! 10625US dollars :)
Certainly, I think very soon, the price becomes normal.

In Hong Kong the price is HK$ 51,980 and that is also Canon's RRP which is what the shops normally sell at. That is roughly US$ 6,700.

Anyone selling higher than that is ripping people off. Anyone buyingt at that price, would be smarter to get on a plane and fly to Singapore if they cannot find it for the normal price.

Stock in HK is the issue at the moment, as it seems to be everywhere else.

I am still waiting to hear back from one retailer about if I order today when would I receive it.

Yes, and like I said, anyone that buys for US$ 4,000 over the RRP (at the price you quoted) needs to see a doctor, or has too much money for sense.

If they are that desperate to own the latest and greatest, and cannot wait a few days/weeks, it would be far cheaper to hop on a plane to Singapore (which seems to have them in stock) and buy one there for S$ 9299 (roughly US$ 7,311).

There are plenty of places in HK that will rip you off when buying a camera and accessories etc. Looks like you found one.

This doesn't mean anything but I did see that Canon USA is now also listing Digital Photo Professional 3.11 on the EOS 1D X page. This used to be only under the 5D III page. So there is some movement on the site... Let's hope for some box pictures on Monday  ;D

I'm on the waiting list with George's. Late order, told hopeful availability prior to August.

Not seen any news of them in the wild here yet though.

Thank you.. I'm still setting it up the way I like.. Want to start a thread and see what others do with their custom settings.. I also want to test the pocketwizards Flex and see if it will work or not... hope they get a new firmware out soon.

Congrats! Don't you just hate getting a new gadget like a phone or something as awesome as the 1D X, only to have to wait for the battery to charge!

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the new camera. What will you be using it for?
