p.1 #1 · Want your D800 soon? Go to your local B&M


After waiting more than two months for B&H and Adorama to ship my D800, I decided (a week and a half ago) to place an order with a local brick and morter store, the camera arrived at the store today and I will pick it up Thursday. Yes I had to pay sales tax on it but I'll have fun shooting this weekend!

That works if you HAVE a local B&M store! The nearest store to me is about 100 miles away.......

Jon,
One other option is that you can order online (or over the phone) from a lot of the smaller B&Ms with around a $500.00 (refundable) deposit. Shipping and insurance probably run another $40-60 though. Maybe yours will as well?

Today I was offered a D800 camera by an FMer I know who contacted me by PM. He'd taken delivery from Amazon and the box sits unopened on his dining room table. He is also first on the list at his local camera store and expects delivery at any moment. All he asked for is retail plus shipping, asking that we avoid Paypal fees. I've decided to wait, so I thanked him and said no. I imagine there will be a time when the supply pipeline is flowing and folks with multiple cameras will either be losing deposits or trying to unload cameras. I hope it happens soon for everyone's benefit.

Curtis - the pipeline is fairly fixed, and there are still so many more people trying to find them than there are bodies to be had that I think it will be a while before the price softens, especially with Nikon's new policies.

I think you make pretty darn good magic with your D700, so I think you made the right call...

Brian, I live just south of you in Vancouver/Camas WA. I am looking for a 800E and don't mind traveling. Can you PM the information on the local shop you purchased your D800 to see if they can get/order the "E" Thanks

All this local B&M thing is overrated! My order with a deposit was placed on Noon Feb 6th at the only B&M in the State of Delaware where I live. I was already 9th on the list. They have 45 deposits on D800 and 14 on D800 E. I preordered from Amazon on Feb 7th. That camera arrived on Monday! The B&M deposit was returned to me today! They have 5 coming in next week and I would have gotten one but they seemed overjoyed to return my deposit so someone could move up the list. I don't think a soul on earth knows how these cameras are being distributed including Nikon.

I guess it all depends on where you are. My local B&M had over 100 people on a waitlist (50 when I ordered mine a week and a half ago). They received two shipments of 50+ ea 2 weeks apart.

If anyone knows of an authorized dealer willing to ship a D800 let me know, ready to buy now, thanks!

There are a lot of small B&Ms that will ship (you can even order online from some), just look around online or pull authorized retailer list from Nikon.
