Canonrumors.com reports that the BGE-11 grip for the 5D3 is now available for purchase, citing customers' in possession of them in Australia and the UK.
I checked a few stores online this morning to see if it was widely available - alas that doesn't appear to be the case.
Camerapro.net.au staff told me today that they shipped their first order of BG-E11s to pre-ordered customers on Thursday and Friday of this week, so perhaps a few of those lucky souls received theirs on Friday in the mail. Price was $355 + postage, etc.
Unfortunately, they are out of stock till their new delivery due later next week.
JBhifi don't even have the model in their database, wants $409.
If you've received your BG-E11 already, can you let us know from where you purchased it. What are your thoughts?
