The Canon 5D Mark III w/ 24-105mm lens kit is in-stock and listed as shipping now.
B&H is finally taking pre-orders for the Canon 1D X. Notes on the product page indicate that initial quantities will be limited, which is probably quite the understatement. You can get in line here at B&H Photo.
Recent stock updates on major retailers suggest that the Canon 5D Mark III, Nikon D4 and Nikon D800 will all ship in March. Those who are on some of the pre-order lists will be seeing their new cameras in the next couple of weeks.
Check ship dates and pre-order options for these cameras below.
Canon 5D Mark III (expected ship date of March 22)
Nikon D800 (expected ship date of March 20-22)
Nikon D4 (expected ship date of March 20-22)
There is no doubt to the popularity and solid performance of the Nikon D700, so this doesn’t necessarily come as a big shocker. The continued flux of the D700’s availability proves that there’s still a pretty big demand for this camera.
No word on what kind of price decreases we might see though. It’d be nice to see the D700 work its way into the sub-$2000 price range in the next few months. (Although that’s mostly wishful thinking – given its current $2700 price tag.) I think that would make it an easier reach for a lot of folks who have been holding off or saving their pennies to grab one.
