Canon EOS-1D Mark III to ship today in the USA, tomorrow in Canada  
Wednesday, May 23, 2007 | by Rob Galbraith
Canon will begin distribution of the EOS-1D Mark III today in the U.S., with the first bodies expected to land on dealer loading docks as early as tomorrow in some U.S. locations, says Chuck Westfall, Director of Media and Customer Relationship at Canon USA. Shipments of the camera are expected to be steady from here on in, says Westfall, though a significant number of pre-orders means it will take some time before supply catches up to demand in the U.S. market.
 
The new digital SLR model joins the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II and Speedlite 580EX II on the list of released products; the new lens came available in late-April 2007 while the flash began to appear on store shelves earlier this month.
 
Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E2A has not yet been released, and while it's expected out soon, Canon USA has not set a firm date for shipments to commence, says Westfall.
 
In Canada, the EOS-1D Mark III is expected to ship from the company's facility in Mississauga to dealers starting tomorrow, May 24, 2007.
 
Earlier this month, Amateur Photographer magazine reported that the camera would ship around the middle of May in the UK.
