I'm looking to get the R5 or R6, depending on the price. Who has the cameras quickest to ship...the Canon Store or someone like B&H?

I've found Adorama to be very reliable. Some have had issues with B&H because they get so many orders. I learned to avoid Amazon. If you order immediately, B&H or Adorama are fine. I've never ordered a new introduction direct from Canon. If you have a local dealer, check with them. They will likely get you one faster. Dealers may have them a day or 2 early in some cases so they can start deliveries on the official first day.

With delivery services overloaded, a lower priority product like a camera may take longer, and warehouses may need to take longer to pick and pack.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm hopefully going on a tropical trip in July and would like a newer Canon camera. Hopefully the airlines will be back up!

You might be able to leave the US, but getting back in?? August, maybe, September is a safer bet. Some parts of the world are remote and the virus has yet to peak. 2 months after the peak, things may be OK. I don't expect to actually see a camera until August.
