all the way up t hrough to the 10d, and even then for half of it's initial life you could not get a hold of a d30, d60 of 10d easily. you had to call around a lot, every day to find one. even large multi-milion dollar camera stores would onlyget 12 a month spread over several shipments. for m y store, the d30 and d60 were cameras you had to pay for in advance if you wanted one, the waiting list was huge.

with the 10d the initial shipment was massive, then it was nowhere to be found for 3 months.

. . . I hesitated when the original 5D came out and paid a price for that by having to wait several weeks for one when I finally decided to get it. Eventually got so frustrated that I bought it from an Ebay seller which worked out just fine with the warranty intact and no problems.
