I know a few people had talked about getting one but has anybody got one? I sold a few other toys and now I have the money to get it but cannot find one:(. Does anybody know any good online dealers I could check?

Yeah...that's going to be tough until after the holdiays. All of the big retailers are out and have waiting lists. I'd start hitting the local pavement...probably your best bet...

None are available right now unless you were on the waiting list back in September.

I friend said his brother just got his, but I haven't gotten a call yet to purchase mine.

I've heard it will take until about February for supplies to catch up with demand.

So, put in your order and wait...

And for where to get it..B&H Photo (bhphotovideo.com) is a very reliable source.

You won't find a deal on it, everyone is selling it for full price, so if you could find it at a local Best Buy, buy it since it's the same as everywhere else.

I am on a waiting list at my local camera shop but I hate waiting for something I want. I am in 3rd place.

I should have brought my lens to work.

In case you had not heard, Canon released a firmware update for the 5D about 3 weeks ago. Link here

Thanks Patrad. I did see this on the Canon website but I have not noticed any issues in my pictures. I am going to look and see if I have version 1.0.6 or if I already have version 1.0.7 already on it. But thanks for the heads up. Much apreciated. Hopefully Spyboy sees this to because I know he has 5d MarkII.
