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?

CPS price is $5900cdn, got that price from camera store in Calgary after they verified my CPS membership. 2 1dx arrived in Edmonton,  and it's true that CPS gets priority. Camera store has not gotten their shipment yet as of this afternoon.  Vistek is still quoting CPS pricing at 6300.

I'm number 6 on the camera store list. We'll see how many they get in.

Keeping my fingers crossed!!

Cheers!

Just added my CPS # to my pre-order at Henry's TO - they have no idea what the CPS price is until the order comes in.

Nope, every time I asked that question I got the standard pre-programmed answer  "It's all up to Canon Canada, we have no idea" blah blah blah...

CameraCanada just put up a notice on their 1DX page saying that they will have a big shipment coming in the next few weeks.

I have been on the pre-order list of a smaller store in Montreal since the day of te announcement and never got any call from them. But, I ordered Monday online with CameraCanada in London Ontario and they shipped my 1Dx one yesterday, only one day after I ordered it

I should have it by today or tomorrow. Give them a call or order online! :)

Good luck to all!

I called CameraCanada this morning and they said their current wait list has 0 people. So I put my name on their list and as soon as they receive another shipment they will ship mine out.

I got a 1Dx, a WFT-E6 and an ST-E3-RT from the Camera Store in Calgary today.  My serial number was #36 so there aren't that many in North America that have gone out yet.

For what it is worth, I am CPS and heading to London.
