All I have seen & heard still says late Nov like Nov 29th.

According to Northlight Images:
"Canon USA is still on target to ship the EOS 5D Mark II to US dealers by the end of November, as stated in our original press release dated September 17th"

Canon Japan agrees with that:
EOS 5D Mark II body November 29th sale schedule

Hopefully places start getting it late next week.  Doesn't matter though - I never buy 1st shipment/1st generation anything.  It always has issues.

I have read a couple places that say by the end of the week or Monday.  The store I purchased from is still saying Dec. 3rd. unconfirmed...

either way it is coming soon.  Will be interesting to which stores get it first.

This doesn't look so good:

Why is that bad? Thats very typical for a bayer-interpolated image and/or a less-than-perfect (zoom) lens. Using zooms instead of primes on the 5D mark II is propably a waste of a good camera IMHO.

And that crop is NOT from the linked full size 200 ISO image!

(yes, I have ordered mine when the camera was first announced, can't stand the wait!)

Do you see that black dots that shouldn't be there? How can a bad lens "come up" with those?

PS: Yeah it looks like the crop isn't from that image, but still, black dots are visible on iso 200 image also.

Colored fringes around light objects can make bayer interpolation fail in many ways.
(Still waiting for that foveon-type megapixel beast..:) )

We should also remember we are peeping pixels here, some black dots in difficult conditions doesn't worry me a bit.

any ideas when it will be out in Europe?
According to some rumors it was early spring 2009 I hope that is not true.

eta:just read on canonorumors.com that it arrived in Denmark. I guess Yuri must be getting his pretty soon,lucky him! and also it was also available in Calumet UK for those who pre ordered.

I pre-ordered with Warehouse Express, but I guess not early enough! I just called them, they say they had only 40 bodies delivered and have no idea when they will get more to fulfil the rest of the back orders.

Well I am completely bummed.  I had ordered from Amazon on Sept 17.   Still no word as of today (Nov. 28), which is really discouraging considering that people who ordered the same time from Adorama, Onecall, Ritz, etc. are already getting theirs shipped. 

Just cancelled the order from Amazon and ordered from OneCall. 

FWIW, if anyone is like me and wants a 30 day return policy instead of 7 days (adorama), 10 days (ritz), or 15 days (B&H) then it is worth considering OneCall.  I've bought from them before and they are reliable. 

My reasoning on the longer return period is that of the 5 consecutive Canon DSLR's I have owned, three had to be returned for replacement because of buggy issues - flash that wouldn't meter correctly, clusters of bad pixels on the sensor, and worst of all - focus problems. 

To be fair, the 5D was perfect out of the box and is still perfect three years later.  Hopefully the 5D II will be also, but in case it isn't, that 30 days gives more time to discover any bugs.

Stephan, could you share the rest of your impressions from using the camera?  Any focus issues?  How about noise at various ISO's?  What's the dynamic range like, and over all image quality? 

As one of the lucky few who actually has this camera in your hands, your impressions would be very much appreciated :)

I've had nothing but silence from Adorama.  Disappointing.

I emailed Adorama. They replied that they are getting a shipment next week, and I will know if I get one of the cameras from that shipment if I receive a despatch email.Fingers crossed!

Those of you who get them, I hope you will post some 100% crops and your impressions of image quality. 

I love the IQ of my 5D and am really hoping this new one will be as good only bigger.  Seems to be a mixed bag of comments on dpreview.com, but that group has so many complainers that it is hard to get a consensus.

I"m seeing more and more pictures at 100% and when in the proper hands, the photographs are looking very, very nice :)

I'm more excited than before (because I had some severe trepidation)

The Adorama returns policy is actually: 14 days (7 days for video, audio, and digital equipment), for a money back refund, or exchange - added to which, we do not charge a restocking fee.
