It looks like the Canon EOS 5DS and 5DS R will begin shipping in just over a week on June 14, 2015. B&H has listed the new shipping date subject to availability.

Note: This is labeled as a gray market item and, therefore, won’t include a US warranty card. At the time of this post, ebay seller GetItDigital has a positive feedback rating of 99.6% and offers its own 1-year warranty with the camera.
