It seems that the Canon 5D Mark II has enjoyed an overwhelming pre-order response. Some stores, including big, online stores, have stopped taking pre-orders for the 5D Mark II.
One of the places still taking pre-orders is Ritz (here’s the link). They’re still accepting pre-orders for the 5D Mark II (body only) and kit with the 24-105mm L lens. If you’re wanting one for Christmas, it might be a good idea to go ahead and get in line. Both Amazon and Adorama have pulled their pre-order capabilities for now.
Finally, word is building toward shipping dates in the US around November 20-22. That means some of you lucky folks will be shooting your turkey dinner with 21.1 megapixels.
