I was in my dealer's shop this afternoon in Calgary and they haven't even seen a demo model yet, so who knows when it will get here.  The fellow I talked to indicated that Toronto and Montreal would probably get them before Calgary - so we wait. :(

I ordered from a smaller shop in Montreal and they still haven't heard from Canon yet. Other, bigger, shops in Montreal received some 1Dx but they have a bigger waiting list so... I'll wait for Canon to deliver to the smaller shops.

Nice to know that some Canadian shops are getting them - there is still hope for this summer.  ;)

I called Henry's Toronto downtown store last Wednesday. The rep said as Canon Canada requested, the initial batch of 1DXs will directly go to CPS member. Non-CPS member, even placed their pre-order in mid-March will (probably) have to wait until after the Olympics (mid-August) timeframe.

I'm in Winnipeg and did not order one.  I did not call the store and they did not have any information.  :(

I'm in Montreal, but I put a hold on one at Henry's in TO early on (I think it was February). I used my CPS number and was told it would move me up the line. I got an email in June asking me to confirm my postal code, but they did not have an expected date. I haven't heard anything since. Canon did want to know if I was going to the Olympics. I am not. I figure it was for on site support.

To be honest, I bought the 5D Mark III  at the beginning of May when the 1DX was being delayed again and again. I'm considering not nabbing the 1DX and going with a second 5D MIII instead. I am actually nervous about that phone call now: "Sir, your 1DX is ready to ship. Shall we charge your card?" "Ummmmmmm...."

Anybody have news on the expected Canadian CPS pricing? 6500$ still?

Most sites that I have looked at are quoting a price of $CDN 6,999.00, subject to change.

I ordered mine from Camera Canada in London Ontario.  However because I am not a pro-photographer going to the Olympic, I will likely not be getting it for a while.

I had originally ordered from B&H the first day so I would have gotten the camera this week or so had I not cancel, but with BH being an international order they wanted me to pay in full 4 months ago, so I cancelled...almost regret it now...cant wait to get the 1dx!
1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses

Not sure I understand the relation to the CPS situation.  I am a CPS member and I called them and spoke directly with them and they told me in 'NO UNCERTAIN TERMS' that being a CPS member AT ANY LEVEL, would not expedite getting a 1DX!!!!

I ordered from Henry's in March and have talked to them two times since.   After pre-ordering I was told I was in the top 3 orders.  I'm now much lower on the list to receive the 1DX as I am not a CPS member.   

If I get it mid-august that would be awesome but with the way things have been going Sept/Oct seems more likely.

When I placed my order in March I asked the same question, if CPS member gets priority and they did say no. Then when I called them last week, all of a sudden they said that they have to fulfill CPS order first.

Now I start to thinking this CPS thing is one way Henry's used to bullsh*ting customers who are anxiously waiting their order to arrive.
