It reminds me of X-Mas when i was a kid... nothing anticipation and hope that you got what you asked Santa for :)

I'm hoping it would be earlier than that. The Broadway Camera in Richmond (perhaps vancouver too), was one of the first places to receive the D700 when it first came out. It stocked it atleast a few days earlier than most places in the states.

The camera was released today (25th November 2008) in Hong Kong stores. The body only, recommended retail price is HK$ 20,800. There maybe only slight discounts in stores as first batch of delivery is very limited. The camera is in the Canon showroom at Tsim Sha Tsui for those wanting to examine it

Park Cameras in the UK have just called to confirm that my 5D mk II pre order will be ready to pick up this Friday (28th). Now just to find the cash.

just got a confirmation email from Ritz saying my camera has shipped - I didn't order until after seeing 'Reverie' (maybe 2-3 weeks after the camera was announced) so I assume that means they're shipping enough to fill most of the initial orders.

thanks for the update, evan. I'm anxiously waiting for any such information from ritz since I ordered 9/29 (according to my order status info on their website which also still lists as backordered). Any idea what day you ordered? was it a body only or kit? Just a bit anxious since I'm going away for a week on Friday and It'd be exciting if i could get it before then...

Canon 5D Mark II at Retail

All:

Are there any retailers that carry the unit? Best Buy? Paying sales tax would suck, but this whack-a-mole game with online shops can get tiresome.

Thanks!
