Unfortunately, not Full Frame, but at least it gives life to the APS-C sensor.

The integrated wireless flash trigger sounds interesting.

I don't think any of the retailers here have them in stock yet. For example, I just checked the web sites for both Best Buy and Wolf Camera, and they don't show them as available yet.

I did more checking and it doesn't look like any US based dealers have this camera in stock. Keep in mind that it's a brand new model.

It should start hitting store shelves in the US soon (but, I don't see anyone with them available yet). Also, customers that placed pre-orders may end up getting much of the available stock first.

I talked with a WorldWide Camera agent today and they told me they are expecting 3 to arrive 2 of which are already pre-ordered, so I guess I am the third one.

It's crazy how the camera is already available in several stores in Montreal but it only goes as low as around 2200 US (body only).

Thanks for your help.

Well... Canon's press release indicated the camera should be available around the end of September. So, you may end up seeing them hit dealer shelves next week in the U.S.

Here in Savannah, Wolf Camera (Oglethorpe Mall on Abercorn) and Best Buy (in a close by shopping center on Abercorn) would probably be your best bet at finding one in stock.

Wolf Camera
Oglethope Mall
7804 Abercorn Extension, Space #89
Savannah, GA 31406
Phone: 912-354-0200

Best Buy (Store 508)
7929 Abercorn St
Bldg #5
Savannah, GA 31406
Phone: 912-920-9240
