Bottom line is B&H, Adorama, Calumet and RITZ did not get ANY 1Ds3 as of 12/1

Since the text changed in the night from 11/30 to 12/1, maybe the
computer was smart enough to change it so that it wouldn't say they
expect it in the past.

So don't read too much into the retailers "computer lingo" as to back-ordered, or out of stock...

The important news is that the BIG-4 Canon Dealers (B&H, Adorama, Calumet and RITZ) did not get any inventory of the 1Ds3 in November, and they thought they would. However, we have also confirmed that a number of small Professional Canon Shops did receive small quantities of 1Ds3 cameras last week.

This means that these Dealers will receive shipments, from Canon's 2nd wave of shipments... having got none from the 1st/initial delivery wave that occurred last week.

I confirmed at noon today, 12/3, that these dealers are being told by CanonUSA that the next wave of shipments will be in 2-3 weeks.

CanonTokyo ships on 14 to 21 day cycles, from Japan to Chicago, then CanonUSA to USA dealers...
