Stock Updates: IN (T4i, 5DMk3, D700), IN w/premium (E-M5, 1D X) & OUT (D4, D800s, RX100)

We updated some of the in-play Stock Status pages, and this is a summary of our findings:


IN-STOCK at REGULAR PRICES
+ Canon D-Rebel T4i and 40mm f2.8 pancake: two of the three standard T4i kits (body only, w/18-55) kits are in-stock at their regular prices and so is the 40mm f2.8 STM pancake lens
+ Canon 5D Mark III: near full house for the 5DMk3, almost all retailers have the two kits in-stock at their rather high opening prices of $3500 and $4300
+ Nikon D700: in-stock at many places, with first discount in a while, $2150


IN-STOCK with LIMITED AVAILABILITY PRICE PREMIUM
+ Olympus E-M5: some 3rd-party sellers at Amazon are feasting on the impatience of early adopters with "limited availability premium" ranging from +$100 to $300 and beyond
+ Canon 1D X: one 3rd-party seller at Amazon has this in-stock with a staggering $600 shipping and handling fee (that just doesn't sound right!)


OUT of STOCK
+ Nikon D4: preorders only
+ Nikon D800 and D800e: preorders only
+ Sony RX100: preorders only, more retailers join the pre-orders party


AD BLOCK PLUS users
+ we are testing the new generation of modular and embeddable stock status pages (Canon T4i, Olympus E-M5 and Sony RX100) using modular embeddable stock status tables, so we can update them at one place, and the updates will automatically appear everywhere the stock status tables are embedded
+ we are using the cloud-based AdSpeed ad-management service to do this
+ because Adspeed is an ad-management service, it is blocked by Ad Block Plus and likely by other similar services
+ if you have Ad Block Plus enabled, you won't see the actual stock status tables that have the stock updates. If all is well, you should see a table as pointed by the green arrows in this screenshot cropped picture
+ workaround: you can adjust the Ad Block Plus settings to allow this to be shown
+ we are evaluating the situation and alternatives on how to proceed in the long run. This experiment was going too well, it was bound to have a problem; one of the internet axioms
+ thanks to a couple of our readers for the alerts
+ if you don't see the stock status tables, please let us know in the Comments or using the online contact form. Please send details (browser, add-ons, circumstances, etc). An email "does not work" does not help figure out what the problem might be
+ one thing you can try as a workaround if you are having problems: try a different browser or a different computer. This can pinpoint whether the issue is a specific browser configuration/setup or more general
