When the 5D3 first became available, I ordered it and a 16-35L lens from One Call.  They shipped each seperately Fed Ex requiring a signature which is One Call's policy.  When the 2 boxes arrived in town, it took an additional 3 days to get me and the boxes in the same place at the same time.  A Fed Ex nightmare which could have been averted if the boxes had been sent to my office and not my residence.  Lesson learned.  One Call was great to work with though.
5D III, 16-35 L II, 24-70 L II, 70-300 L, 85 1.8, P.S. S100

So it looks like onecall is out of stock on yesterday's batch. The page for the 24-70 is back up and the item is listed as 'Coming Soon'. Unfortunately it looks like the price went up to $2,500.

My PC Nation order also went from In stock to back order status as I was a new customer and apparently got shafted. Waiting to call as soon as they open this morning to see what is up.

Something similar happened when I ordered my 5D3 from onecall....item was in stock when the order was placed, but soon switched to 'backordered' in the order status. I called and they assured me that my item was in stock and it shipped later that day. I am hoping this is the same case with PC Nation, although it is probably just wishful thinking and my wait will continue.

EDIT:

Yup, spoke to customer service and they oversold on the lenses. I cancelled the order and put one in at Kenmore. I missed their ebay offering last night, which had a little bit cheaper shipping and the +-$45 ebay bucks.

Not all pre-orders filled yet, so annoying that some stock in this new lens gets out. GRRR. but I know I might have jumped on existing stock if I didn't have a pre-order and a lot to do right now so I'm letting the pre-order ride for a while.

Just ordered mine from Newegg.com! ;D

They had four in stock when I ordered, so as of this posting there should still be three available.

Go get'em!! :-*
