I can't pre-order...
Too little faith in canon cameras when they are released. I will probably get it down the road (feb-march) if their aren't any issues.

Would upgrade from mkII.

Would be nice if canon could release the 1d and 1ds as one camera, and just allow us to switch between high fps and high MP.
But alas, I'll refrain.

I pre-ordered. I agree with PencilInWin - the early bug rate in newly released Canon cameras has been very high. The 1DM3 had the focus issues, my 5DM2 had the notorious "error 20" issues necessitating 3 (yes, that's three) trips to the Canon repair facility for shutter assembly replacements. However, I got an early 1DsM3 and I am thrilled with it. I am going to sell my 5dM2 and switch the workflow I used to do with it to the 1DM4. Hope Canon got this one right from the get-go.

I received my preorder confirmation at 9:19AM CDT on October 20th. Amazon has been taking preorders for almost three months, and now they've stopped. Yet, I still have no camera, and to think, I was hoping to have it for Christmas.

I notice that Amazon has two vendors selling the Mark IV for $6600. I am a big Amazon Fan however I believe they do themselves a disservice by listing Scalpers (neither of which I've ever heard of) selling the product at $1600. above suggested retail. Three months from now they'll be selling for $200.00 below suggested retail. In any event I am patiently waiting for my number to come up. Sure would like to hear from others on the "Wait" list and those with recent arrivals.

I'm also on the wait list. They got my hopes up, giving me a Jan. 19 delivery date, then changed it to "we don't know when it will ship."

I might try the local camera shops. I don't mind paying sales tax, but I'm not going to pay an extra $1,600.

If you ordered after 9:19AM CDT on October 20th, you just moved up. I canceled my order after finding one elsewhere. Good luck to you all.

B&H has had them in stock for more than two hours! The shipment must have been huge.
