Well I'm just pumped that the 20D just came out at the price point that I'm looking at. I know they a will sell out fast! Is there anywhere to preorder one so I am assured in getting the first batch?

Thank You!

As far as Ritz is concerned, it wasnt in my computer yet Friday at about 6pm est. I will give a shout when I find out it is in the system for a preorder if you like.

Adorama is taking pre-orders. They're noted for fast shipping and reasonable service at competitive prices.

B&H will surely follow shortly -- perhaps just after the weekend if they haven't done so already somewhere. They'll probably get stock at the same time.


My local leading retailers also have preorder forms up on their web site -- one was up yesterday, and the other today.

But I wouldn't expect it sooner than late September now, and just be glad if it comes earlier.

I pre-order my Canon 20D at www.onecall.com on Friday. Onecall is a great place to buy camera.

Any public announcement yet about the market coming for 20D? No? Think so...
PhotoKina Germany will be the answer for all our questions... price, availability, etc... I hope.
I am more than sure they wait for the Konica-Minolta to "pop" their Dynax 7D.
One month away... the KM is blocking out the market

I personally wouldn't want to be getting one of the very first ones out of the block & being Canon's markettest as to what may or may not be right. I definitely wouldn't want to be getting a brand new item just beforeshooting anything of importance or that I was being paid to shoot.

On another forum they say something about mid-October, but that is for the preordering. Of course, after PhotoKina... I think first it will be released in Japan, as usual. And they still got a kit IS USM, as usual. Not that this is a bad thing, they are producing it. (I hope)

I just found out that a lot of online-shops in Germany also accept payment for the 20D, all of them indicating 31.08.2004 as shipment date, price range 1400-1600E for body only. Photokina....

Sorry about la last message, it was what I "read" in german. The date 31.08.2004 was the actual date. The Photokina is at the end of september and the date I found was somehow right, except the month which is 08 august. Sometimes you read what you wanted to be...:roll:
