Update: Crutchfield has shipped the 1D X as of this morning. I should be receiving it soon. Yay!
Sephknite, congrats! That's an impressive turn around time from order to shipping. Were they pretty good about providing you with information about expected upcoming shipments and when you might receive your camera?
I ordered from Amazon back on March 16 but have not been able to get any info from them about when my camera might ship. Based on past experience, it might be tomorrow, or it might be several weeks. So, I'm considering placing another pre-order with Crutchfield and seeing which can deliver first. Any thoughts?
Thanks! For me, my credit card comany called to confirm a charge. As soon as I did and checked my email, I saw a message from Crutchfield that it had already been shipped. They have a lot of available agents on their website to check your orders with, and they're pretty responsive. I was in the same boat as you with Amazon. After I talked to one of the reps at Crutchfield, I figure I try them out since they won't charge my card until item is shipped--let them race against Amazon. I guess they won!
Both places allow you to cancel. Once I got the UPS tracking updated, I canceled with Amazon since my pre-order was a bit late in May anyway and wouldn't expect the first batch to include my pre-order. I would definitely give Crutchfield a go. Visit their website and chat with their reps online. Good luck!
Thanks! I think I'll give that a shot and see which can produce a camera first. Given your experience, I wouldn't be surprised if it is Crutchfield.
