5D Mark III Availability

I posted links to some REAL reviews of the Canon 5D Mark III yesterday, and mine arrived from Adorama yesterday as well.  Since I only placed my order on Friday (March 23rd) and I’ve heard horror stories about other places, I decided to write a post about it.

In short, Amazon is out. They currently say “Usually ships within 1 to 3 months”.  I also saw a post about B&H stock (sorry, I don’t remember where) where it said they sold out of their initial stock of 800 and had 4000 backordered. Even Adorama now says it’s back to taking “preorders”  and they’ll ship when they get more. Adorama was showing that they had it in stock when I ordered Friday – which is why I ordered from them. 🙂

In short, this is obviously a hot item. I would recommend calling before placing an order with anyone.
