Mine came yesterday. Sixth digit is a 4.

I'm impressed with the camera, but wish it wasn't so bulky and heavy.

I don't have mine handy, but I'll check my s/n too and post later. 

To those who want to get in on the next round of these deals, I signed up at slickdeals.net and www.canonpricewatch.com.  It was the email from canonpricewatch that got this done for me.  I never got anything from slickdeals.  I thin over there it is harder to predict how people will title their posts and where they will put them, so you have to have LOTS of alerts set.  On canonpricewatch.com it sends a note anytime the mkiii price changes below their listed low price the day you sign up.   You can also sign up for the ebay daily deals alert.  That may help you too. 

Good luck everyone!  And Thanks to Ebay, Adorama, and Beach/BuyDig for these deals!

Where can you sign up for price alerts through Canonpricewatch? I only see notification option for items not in stock.

Ours came yesterday as well. Took a few shots with it, and the AF performance was awesome. Very excited about our entry into the world of full frame photography. :)

Mine also arrived yesterday.  The Serial Number was good and it is not one of the light leaking models.  Very excited to move up from my 7D.  Thanks Adorama.

Right next to the picture of the camera body there is a link that says:

Get notified by e-mail when in-stock, prices drop, or used/refurbished is available.

Click there and put in your information.  It brings up a pop up, otherwise I'd try and put the direct link here.

Thanks! I'll also just check this forum regularly. That's how I saw the Adoroma deal anyway :)

Adorama has sold 818 5D Mark III's on ebay alone, which has netted them well over $2,400,000!.. not too shabby.. 100 5D3's were sold alone in the last 9 or so hours of that sale!! and that was when everyone was likely sleeping.

I hope you are not in business. They didn't "net" $2.4 million. The grossed $2.4 million. What they netted was the sale price less wholesale cost, less shipping, less overhead. If they actually made $50 net on each one (which might be more generous than you think) that's about $41,000. That's not bad for a one-day sale, but it's a far cry from $2.4 million and assumes they actually made $50 in profit on each one.

No, I am not in business, I am in law. But I do have an economics background and a business degree and understand it is revenue, not net profit. That is still a nice chunk of revenue, and revenue and volume do tend to correlate with profit. They obviously didn't make as much or any profit on the one day sale at the price point they unloaded the cameras at but what they did do was free up inventory space and cash flow.

She's here!  She's beautiful! (And I probably not going to be posting for a while.  ;) ) Painfully long weekend averted.  Here come the snaps!

finally received it.  everything is great except joy stick... not really as solid as 7d.  anyone has the same feeling?  like it so far, but will see how it handles low light focus tomorrow.

Mine has said "Departed Hodgkins, IL" for the past 3 days with no updates from UPS. Was hoping some miracle I'd get it today, but nope. Monday it is... when I have to work. Lame. =)

Checked my S/N and my magic digit is a 3.  I think that clears me of the light leak issue as well. 

I'm sure there is a conspiracy theory we're disproving right now.
