Tried to order R5 but BH closes at 2pm EST on Fridays. I just woke up and they literally closed while I was calling :(

Lol. Stupid timezones. I'm from Finland so I only count in S, not D :)
Ha!! Yes, the S means "Summer" over there not "not Daylight."

So the joke is on me; you made the error for a different reason than the one I'm used to. So many Americans blindly put the S in it's becoming one of my pet peeves. Sorry you got swept up in that. Sisu!

my local shop in San Francisco told me last week that they expected more in 2 weeks but they could not confirm anything, fingers crossed I was too far down on the preorder list to get one in the first batch

90% sure I'll get R5, but R6 would be good too. I shoot sports and studio, so R5 would be good for both. I feel R6 would be better suited for sports alone.

Also I wish I had some idea about R1, or if they plan some high Mpix R3.

Oh well, it's just money.

I've been trying to check my R5 status from Canon Direct but their site has been down for maintenance for a few days now...

Apparently they were hit by a cyber ransom and the site has been inactive for the last few days

It will be interesting to see if the ongoing incident will affect the distribution of the second shipment of R5's from the Canon USA warehouses.

Or for that matter, the order I put in for a 24-105 + RP refurb (I essentially will get an RP for $300 this way.)

BH still saying delivery for tomorrow. They might be bit overly optimistic...

Bad news from germany, especially for calumet-photograpic customers:

I have just spoken to the Calumet hotline:

The second delivery from Canon has already been completely delivered to pre-orderers. However, not all pre-orders from April could be delivered. It will take months until the official first order date 09.07.2020 is due for delivery (with the current Canon deliveries, which are in the single-digit range per shipment).

The CPS status (if it is given by email) is stored in the order and improves the allocation on the part of Canon.

Well, then I can look forward to a nice Christmas present anyway. Only the year has not yet been determined

Looks like we have to wait a few months.

If I refresh the BH order page every 30 minutes, that'll move me up on the queue every time. Right?
