October 18th is incorrect. I don't know where that date came from.

Sometime this month is what I've been told... any time between now and Nov. 30th.

Just yesterday I saw the production model packaging (in other words, the box it comes in), so they must be getting close to their shipping date. I'll post that pic in a separate thread. Edit: images uploaded; see http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/photo-hd-...amera-box.html

For what it is worth, my local camera shop "Broadway Camera" (no not the NYC scam site) has told me Dec 5th.

There are also rumors that the camera by be released on the 28th in the USA. Unfortunately there is no way to be sure.

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

If you go to this site and click on the red 5D Mark ll HD box, some information comes up with a date of 11/29/08. Two other dates, today and the 23rd are also listed. I can't read Japanese or translate the flash page, but I'd be interested in whats happening on that date. Anyone read Japanese?

I have been assured my 5D II will be shipped 5th Dec (in UK)

There is also no major pre-order backlog here, due to it only shooting in 30P I guess
