  1. Yes Adorama says that Canon says it will start shipping on August 28. I have mine preordered from Adorama and supposedly am on the first shipment list because I just traded in some equipment to put towards it.
  2. I agree if you have the mark II then ordering this new mark III makes absolutely no sense. The reason I ordered it is because I had the old non-IS version which I traded in to get image stabilization and closer focus. Since mark III was only 300 bucks more than mark II then I figured it was worthwhile to go for the new one. If it was something like 800 bucks more then I likely would have just ordered a mark II.
  3. Today is August 29 and lens was supposed to start shipping from manufacturer yesterday (August 28). I just checked Adorama and they have revised their window which now reads item will start shipping from manufacturer August 30.
