5 min ago said in stock all the way through my cart, only said backordered once the order was placed.

Pretty poor online inventory management on Canon's part.

This is par for the course with Canon Direct.  I doubt it will change anytime soon.  The good news is sometimes you win the lottery when you order online with them (I had lots of success getting the most unique RF lenses early from Canon Direct) but their order website and backend are pretty atrocious.  Many people who ordered weeks after the launch event got R5 cameras from Canon Direct already while a lot of people ordered from B&H on launch day (but a few hours after the event) and are still waiting. I would advise against using Canon Direct unless you are willing to live with the uncertainty and difficulty that comes with it.
