For what it's worth, after seeing these posts about Crutchfield I looked into an order with them (I placed an order with Adorama on 4/10 so I am probably looking into 2013 before seeing a camera, it feels)... Customer Service at Crutchfield told me,
"This is a new item, and we haven't received our first shipment yet. We'll be sure to keep you updated with information as we receive it from Canon."
So, it might seem, just like everywhere else, information and responses are dodgy at best.
I will note too, that as of an hour and a half ago they had approx 20 people on their wait list, and I was #15ish based on an order yesterday.
