| p.1 #7 · D800 Preordered - Any Experience with B&H or Adorama? |
I've been through this a few times with Canon and Kodak products (14n.) Never with Nikon.
B&H seemed to get regular shipments from Canon, maybe 3x per week. They would fulfill them in order. They always seemed to be one of the better supplied and better managed of the pre-order lists.
I remember being really pissed and really frustrated at other merchants. They pre-chared the credit card, they couldn't even tell you where on the list you were, delivery dates kept getting pushed back, other dealers were shipping and they kept promising, and promising, and promising dates, and we got nothing, etc.
I pre-ordered one camera at 3 different places - I forget where. I know I have pre-ordered at Adorama and Amazon. I'll have to look at old purchase history.
This time I just pre-ordered at B&H. About noon today.
I ordered the 800E. I understand it is slated for later delivery. If the 800 is running behind, I imagine they might push the 800E back a bit.
Canon has learned a lot about ramping up production and fullfilling early orders. Hopefully Nikon will also have their act together?
I noticed that some of the sample pictures are dated in September. So they should have a pretty good planning and manufacturing lead time to ramp up. Firmware can always be tweaked right up to shipping date.
