likely I'll bring it along on overnight trips whereas otherwise it would be the S100 only.

Who needs a Point & Shoot when you can have a 1DX + Pancake?
Now you just gotta find a jacket with pockets big enough to make it a true 'pocket camera'.
Too much gear, too little space.

Don't forget it has to be set to Auto mode (if there even is one on that camera)  :P

Worth noting - I was told on Monday that they'd be getting a shipment just after the holiday, and my order would be fulfilled from that. Seems clear now that was accurate, since people with lower order numbers are getting tracking numbers, it's the second shipment that my order will ship from, and they knew that on Monday.

Camera doesn't even have a popup flash, what a scam!

I heard even more frustrating news: no 35mm film!

How can Canon come up with a new camera without having a 35mm film compartment?

Why'd it come with such a crappy-looking body cap?
It's a 40mm pancake lens?

Another joke right over someone's head...........Swewwwwwwwwwww

Daaaamn, got me there.
Wasn't sure if trolling or joking - went for the wrong one. Darnit.  :-\

It's ok I'm just kidding.  Message boards on the internet are very difficult to read into that stuff.  Much better on the phone or in person.

Sometimes it's perfectly clear. This one was pretty much a 50/50 chance haha.

But I should've known 'cause LeeJay has quite a few posts here... :)

Gotcha!   ;)

Just curious, I was playing with the Connectivity menu today, and enabled the LAN port as FTP and as Media Server. I am trying to find an easy way to import the photos quickly into Lightroom via gigabit LAN, however I could not get the 1DX to be recognised as a network location to import from.

Wondering what you guys are doing as far as import workflow, I've just been using my card reader for now.

I ordered mine from Amazon a few minutes before 6:00 p.m. on March 16.  This was within an hour or two of when they started taking pre-orders, as they started two days after B&H. So I was one of the earliest pre-orders on Amazon.   

Within the last hour, my shipping status changed from "Not yet shipped" to "Shipping Soon."

I'll post an update when I get an actual shipping notice and tracking number, but I thought some of you out there might like to know that Amazon appears to be receiving some 1DXs on a similar schedule to B&H and may be shipping soon as well.

I have had mine ordered since January with a smaller dealer.  When you guys start to receive your cameras from the big dealers like B&H, Amazon and Adorama please let us know.  Shipment from the larger dealers might indicate the smaller retailers could get one or two soon.

Actually, it seems like the smaller dealers have already received some and have shipped them out to customers. this goes along with other recent canon releases (5diii, bg-e11, 600ext, etc). the smaller stores got them in a bit earlier, but of course their numbers received were much less. three smaller stores i have a 1DX pre-order with all received some this past tueday. but one received two bodies, one received "a handful" and one received ONE body...

Just got my B/H tracking number :), and it didn't get here in time for Jr Nationals, but it is 'in the mail' finally!

Just got an updated shipping notice-delivery now scheduled for 7/9/12  :-\
Really bummed as I paid for next day air... This totally just ruined my plans for the weekend.  Wife is out of town, so was going to do some serious, real-life, side by side testing of 1dX. 1dIV and 5d3.. I will have to postpone comparing until it actually arrives....
