Reports are flooding in from the stable of photographers that have pre-ordered the Canon 5D Mark II. It seems that the consensus is many US retailers will be getting the 5D Mark II this coming week. I have yet to be able to confirm this with the larger retailers; however, I’ve seen many reports that photographers who have pre-ordered the 5D Mark II getting notices from their local shops that they will be receiving the cameras from Canon this week.
Here’s a rundown of some of the major retailers for the Canon 5D Mark II. Out of this list, Ritz is the only retailer still accepting pre-orders for the camera. B&H hasn’t taken any pre-orders that I’ve seen. Keep an eye on them for launch day and see if it’s available (if only briefly).
Finally, I’ve started a thread in the forum where you can exchange info and keep up with the pre-order status of the Canon 5D Mark II – click here for the forum thread. I’ll try to keep up with the chaos as well and let you know where it’s available as it rolls out next week.
