Does anyone know anything at all about the status of the 5D2's and Canadian orders?  It seems like we've been shafted as a country.

I have no idea really. It's what you choose to believe. I was at a local shop in Vancouver yesterday and they told me it would likely be late Feb to March if I ordered now. I called Vistek just minutes ago and they said they were filling October orders right now but a fair number of people had backed out and that the cameras were coming in faster they figured maybe early to mid January. I took my chances with them. B&H is showing 7 to 14 days for order time. But there is about a $250 difference with the US price plus Vistek is free delivery plus no PST when ordered from Vistek. I guess the thing to do was order earlier. I figure I'll get annoyed around Feb. if I don't see it by then.

I ordered it around October 20th from Henry's.  Probably should have ordered earlier but whatever.  I just haven't heard anything lately so I'm getting really annoyed with the customer service at Henry's.  I call them once every week or two and they shrug me off now. 

Good to hear that the cameras are coming in faster than they expected.  I do have a preorder, hopefully something comes through soon.

As I mentioned earlier it depends who you want to believe. I have my reservations about Vistek and their customer service as well. I'm fairly certain I'll be steaming mad in a month or so.

Its here...and its AWESOME.

No, 1600 doesn't look like 100 but it does look great and I can't wait to get it out into action.  Went to 3200 in RAW and its lovely compared to the 30D

Will try to see how it goes with some indoor hockey later this week and try up to 1600...could be awesome

I just got my tracking number for delivery tomorrow (I took the day off!). I preordered from Henry's online on November 4th so they are starting to fill the November preorders.
