Just got my tracking number.  It will likely be picked up tomorrow though.  I guess the Adorama guys are all working hard today trying to fill those orders.

Honestly this has more to do with the Jewish holiday. Adorama probably doesn't sell much between now and Tuesday night anyways they boost sales with this deal and don't offend canon because it's sold through their eBay store.
Since Adorama does not close online sales over the Jewish holidays, how do you figure they make any difference??  B&H closes, but not Adorama.

Same. Crazy that they processed so many so swiftly. I was in the 600 range with my order. Now I get to watch the announcements tomorrow and see if I'm going to keep this body or sell it.

Hahahaha that would be great, but we can dream on.

I had a chance to buy it yesterday, but was indecisive. I really want high iso, but high dynamic range sensor and it seems I'll have to wait for a while...
...so this morning I felt a bit sorry :-)

Yes, the retail store closes, but not their online store.  B&H shuts down the online sales too, but not Adorama.  Online is where most of their sales happen.

Darn, by the time I saw this thread the price has already gone back up to US$3459! They sold 818 units at $2745, it was almost like one body bought per minute!

I think it is possible. Again, I´d like to thank libertyranger, the guy who posted the first link. It was a party!
The last 100 orders:

What are the chances another price like this will come out for any retailers in the next month or two? Kicking myself I didn't pull the trigger  :'(

Doh! After waiting to talk to my wife about it and her definitely approving of it, I went to order it... and it is now sold out!  :'(

Don't fret. It's been just 6 months since initial release and already we've seen 3 different instances of $700+ discounts, with 2 of those being from authorized dealers. 

Chances are it will happen again and we'll probably see a price drop as the Holiday season approaches.

Chances are good that we will see more deals.  Its a way of reducing excess inventory without officially lowering the price.  As long as the economy is slow, Canon is going to have surpluses.
