Adding some B&H information from another thread to try to keep it all in one place.

I also ordered the evening of the 14th and have been told that I won't make it out of the first shipment, and maybe not the next.  :(

I also ordered mine on 3/14/12 in the evening (just after 9:30 CST).  What I was told is it was after business hours, so they considered it ordered on 3/15/12.  My order number is 101989xxxx.

They cannot give me any shipping or delivery date for my order.  The fact of the matter is they don't know.

I would like to add some information to the top of this topic for new visitors that might also help.

From what I am hearing here; am I wrong to infer that B&H has been filling orders from two shipments from Canon?

This meaning that the third shipment they receive should serve those who ordered AFTER 6PM EST on 3/14.

Does this sound correct?

Also, please post if you have received a tracking number.. that would be most helpful!

That sounds correct; that's essentially what I was told by a b&h csr. Seems like I missed the initial two allotments by 5 hours.

Just in pure numbers and times:
Lowest order number I've seen here from afternoon calls is 12:50pm EST with 1019886xxx.
My order number from 9:25pm CST with 1019892xxx.

That's in the order of 5,000+ camera bodies difference.  That's a lot of camera bodies, and no one knows how big the shipments are until they hit the loading dock.

Ahhh...I didn't think of that.  Good point, but it seems like most of the volume for that day and evening seems to be 1D X related.  Either way I'm still on back order, and I don't think I'll see it any time before the next two weeks.

It's also entirely possible that they don't use fully sequential ordering on their invoices. With larger sale systems, you have to worry about multiple systems all trying to add records at the same time, and they may have a database cluster, as well. So, different servers would use different numbers for the last digit. It may be that they only got 500 orders, and the last digit is there to ensure there are no collisions on the order number.

At least, I certainly hope so, or the order I placed on 3/16 might just be my Christmas present. :'(

That would only be true if every single order placed with B&H that day was for a 1D X...I sincerely doubt that's the case.

I'm not saying it's so; it seems a pretty good possibility though, considering the angst that's been shown on this forum over one camera body.  You would think half of the Canon owners ordered one.  At $6800 I don't see how that many could afford it or could explain to their spouses why they needed it. :P

I hope your point is closer to being right.

I really doubt there were a large number of 1D X orders.  Consider - there are less than 20 people on CR forums (maybe 10 or less, I haven't counted) posting about preordering a 1D X on 3/14.  That's out of close to 1300 members here counting only those with 10 or more posts.

Soon after 3/14 when people posted a few times and order numbers, I looked over my order history, and a back-of-envelope estimate showed that orders on 3/14 were at about the same pace as any other day.

Yeah it does seem like a surprising number of people placed Pre-orders for this camera; im number 50 on my local "small" dealer's list. 50!?!?

I should say, 'large number' is relative.  Compared to the 5DIII, the numbers are small.

At almost twice the price I guess it's not surprising.  Plenty of griping over the $3500 too.  Well, hope you get yours soon and mine follows not too far behind the rest.

I just had a chat with someone at B&H and he said they are still waiting for the shipment that was supposed to show up on Tuesday.


Looks like I was misled to say the least. And as happy as I am for people that have or are about to receive their orders, as disappointed I am to see that B&H apparently is shipping weborders that have been posted after my phone order was placed, especially after being told last Tuesday that my order should ship either on the 5th or the 6th of July. And as a matter of fact, I don't recall seeing people with phone orders posting any shipping information, but I might have missed tha.
