It seems that Canon has quite a backlog in serving the EOS R3 to the European market. I think it would be good if we can post information across Europe about deliveries (or lack of it), to understand if/when deliveries are starting to happen.

I'll start out with Denmark: the two pro dealers got a single camera each for the pre-orders on release day (2021-11-26). I just called the dealer where I preordered, and they told me that they have received neither further cameras nor information about when they will get any :(

It seems to me that with yours Scandinavian earnings it would be profitable for you to fly to Gdansk (one of the Polish Baltic cities), and make a purchase on the spot in one of the stores belonging to our largest Polish photographic chain with the Canon PRO Partner status. Alternatively try to get along with the customer support of this photo chain (I will write right away, that I have no idea if it is possible to communicate with someone there in English), whether they will accept an order with shipment outside of Poland.

They probably have two for sale. One is in the main warehouse in Gdansk, and the other in one of the Warsaw stores.

I think the best way to contact them, would be to send them an e-mail.

Thanks for the information. For me, that could be a potential option (the price in Zloty is around 4% lower than the official price here in Denmark. For @morten74, he would have to pay Norwegian VAT on entry, but should be able to get the Polish VAT back, so a bit more complicated situation.

But an email to see if they have anything and would be willing to sell/ship would be a good starting point.
