Just an update, the Adorama site now shows "In Progress - we're preparing your order for shipment" next to my order.

Got my camera, took it for its first spin, and imagine my surprise when I find out that the EOS VR utility (which is required to make the right adjustments for the VR lens distortion), can't handle raw files (both stills and video)!!! So basically 8K VR is impossible right now, until I find a workaround.

Can you use MP4? Or is the quality not good enough?

You can only record 8K 60fps (59.87) in raw (LT). I can import the video into Resolve, but it's not stretched to the frame (which is was the godforsaken Canon EOS VR Utility app does), so it looks like two circles. I think I'll need to splice and dice and figure out the right spherical to rectilinear transformation algorithm in Resolve. On the brightside, the still VR180 images are sweet, but that's just a tease.
