Hey guys, I can confirm again that there is a high possibility that BH are receiving quite a lot of the 1DX in their first shipment. Just chatted with them over live chat, and I was told there is a high possibility for me to receive mine in the first shipment, so lets all wait impatiently! ;D
That is weird... All these inconsistent Live Chats...
My B&H representative was very clear that they don't have an ETA from Canon... I even asked about my place in the pre-order and he replied. We don't have an ETA...  :-\

I have just got mine in Singapore, with the minimum of hassle.

Furthermore, plenty more available in the stores, so what is the problem in North america

well, my slim hopes of getting one before next week have been dashed; one place i have a pre-order received a "handful" and they went out to people before me on their list. another store received ONE, and that went to someone who paid for it in full back in 2011. and i'm #50 another stores list. god knows where i stand with b&h (i ordered on the first day, but not until that night).

i find it somewhat surprising, that a $7k camera, that has been delayed for some time now, with rumors of problems, hesitation about expect ions (we all have heard "i'll just get a 5diii for half the price"), is now so popular that many are getting shut out of the first allotments. for example, the with one store, i am #8 on their list. the owner sent out a very nice email stating how they wish they could give more info, but they just don't know when and how many they will be getting. that email was sent to 250 people. so that's how many pre-orders they have. i think that's a lot. and b&h probably has 10x that..

oh well, eventually everyone who wants one will get one, right???

It's also amazing how Canon announces this last year in October and then in July they don't have any.

Oh well. The day's gone by and I haven't heard from B&H yet. Either they're too busy or they didn't get enough in their first shipment to cover my order.

I'm curious to hear if anyone's heard from B&H, and, if so, what your order number was.

Adorama shipped my order today. I called them today morning and they said that there is no way I will get the camera before August. And then they ship it the same evening. 

I am ELATED. :D

Full disclosure - I am a CPS gold member and Adorama is the only store that honored the CPS expedited fulfillment.

Interesting, are you in the USA? Because I am also a CPS gold member but my Adorama rep never even asked about this when I placed my initial preorder by phone last year OR when he emailed me earlier this year to confirm my credit card information and that I still wanted the camera...
