Canon officially announces 5D release date: Nov 29!!
Nov 21, 2008

Right on schedule, Canon Japan has announced the EOS 5D Mark II will release to retailers on Saturday November 29.

Body and lens kit ship same day along with accessories. Focus screens won't ship until mid-December: http://cweb.canon.jp/camera/eosd/5dmk2/

Translation from dc.watch, the dates auto-translate funny, don't worry, the Japanese actually says November 29, not June 29!

Yes, 2 1/2 months after the announcement, right on schedule and very inconveniently right after the Japan labor day thanksgiving holiday and just after the autumn leaves. Nobody is slower or has worse timing than Canon's management! But at least the AF works this time!
