I live in Miami, but Since I am in NYC I had to stop by B&H. I preordered the 1DX 3 months ago and still haven't gotten it.
I asked the manager about my order and he showed me the computer and I saw for myself, 840 cameras on order and 680 on Back Order... That means more cameras than back orders so I will definitely get one and if you placed a pre order and still gotten yours, you are surely getting one soon!
They didn't even have a sample camera to show. I got lucky and the manager told me to wait and 10 minutes later he came back with a brand new unopened camera and let me open it and play with it for a while. Not even the employees at the store had even seen one. I was the first to play with it. It feels incredible in your hand. The viewfinder is huge and the screen is amazing. I asked the salesman for a 24-70 2.8 and then a 70-200 2.8L II... Wow. The store has very bad light, and at 4000 ISO there is no visible noise. Even at 8000 ISO I was able to go to 1/1000 at F4.0... WOW!
Bad for me, he couldn't sell it to me. He said the camera was Canon's property and it can't be sold. I will have to wait for my order to arrive in the mail
at least I was able to unbox it myself and use it for a while and I believe it's the best camera ever! I can't wait!!!
