Believe me, you don't have to wait that long. Just avoid the big retailers. Look for smaller decent online retailers. They receive stock and they usually don't have long waiting list or none.

Mac yesterday I ordered one from the same place you did and my invoice has the S/N on it. And yes, the 6th digit is a 3.

But they're sold out again at the moment. I'll echo what Mac said about the company though, like him, I was very favorably impressed with the people when I called them. Very friendly and accommodating. When I asked if they could ship the 5D3 out to me via second day air he (Clint) said no problem, and he only charged me what it costs them ($39) to send it out second day air instead of marking it up like so many other companies do.

Re: Anybody recived 5DM3 from the lates batch?

I received my Canon 5D mark III today the sixth number is 3, what does this mean? Ive not shot with the camera plan to this weekend and I will be shooting an event on Monday will give more opinions on then, but I really like the construction of the camera feels GREAT not plastic cheap feel of the Canon 5D Mark II. Is Canon shipping out the grip?

Re: Anybody recived 5DM3 from the lates batch?

That's the way my first invoice looked too, but after I'd called them this morning and changed the shipping from free to 2nd day air, that changed the total amount so they generated a new invoice and sent it to me.

Anyway, I guess the important thing is my S/N (and most likely yours and the others) are the newer ones containing the 3 in the 6th spot.

Tracking Number

You should probably block out your tracking number too. Wouldn't want anyone intercepting your package.
