Thoughts on which retailer will most likely get the D850 pre-orders out first? BH Photo, Adorama, Samy's, Amazon? Any differences at all in time frame?

Why would there be a difference?

Just wondering if anyone had any past experience. For example, is there a difference in how much stock certain retailers receive? Do certain retailers get priority over others when it comes to receiving shipments early? Is there a big difference in the number people on wait-list for the pre-orders and thus delaying consumer's chances of getting it in a timely manner? Again, just curious.

When I've preordered in the past it's been with B&H.
I plopped down 2 large the minute it was announced
and got a D500 serial #101. I'm thinkin' that was one
o' the first US batches. Amazon often sells via Adorama.

I just went with Adorama because I'm really trying to avoid supporting B&H going forward. Not a big deal if it's a difference of a couple weeks... but I would imagine they'd all be similar.

amazon
adorama
b&h
are the big three.
most smaller outlets will not get any for a while, for what could be one of many reasons.

I'm in Pa, Philadelphia suburbs.
We do not pay sales tax for anything that comes here from another state, unless it's amazon (b/c they have warehouses in my state).
therefore, adorama and b&h gets all of my business
they reach me next day via ups ground.
however, for this purchase, adorama upgraded us to next day air, which means < 1030am.
adorama is my first choice. B&H second. never use amazon, if I can help it.

please hear me out...
no need to use amazon if it's the same price as adorama or B&H or beach camera, or whomever.
AMAZON gobbling up sales of everything from food to plumbing supplies, to photography gear. needless greed.
I am a prime member, but I always use other stores (especially family owned/local) when cost and service are close.
PLEASE support the stores that have been serving us for decades, including the one around the corner, or the big ones in NYC!

I would use the one around the corner, but 6% sales tax savings on this purchase could fund a nice xqd/sd memory card combo.

I ordered with B&H minutes after they took preorders but was a little disappointed to see adorama was doing free overnight and B&h was only doing 3 day shipping.

At https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1351688-REG/ our site says, "Free Next Day Delivery (USA)." I can check your order if you wish. Email the order number with a brief note.

B&H all the way for me. Although, I've also had good luck with Adorama. Amazon and the extra 9% sales tax because I'm in California means that I would never buy such an expensive item from them.

They are all reputable. I think it is the luck of the draw. I would imagine that there are a lot of variables with orders, suppliers and logistics at play.

Is trying to get the lowest price, the fastest lowest cost shipping, and pay no state sales tax "needless greed" as well?

My B-H preorder confirmation suggests Sept 7th shipment and next day delivery.

I quit buying any gear from Amazon. Terrible packing and other issues. I only use 3 places:

1. Allen's Camera
2. B&H
3. Adorama

All of the above have been very good to me over many years years and the personal service at Allen's is top notch, not to mention HenryP has helped me through a couple of issues that were not B&H's fault.

Since it required no extra work, money, or time to order from Adorama instead, absolutely.

Until recently I had the same opinion of Allen's on PA. However, I sent 3 emails about the D850 and none were replied.
Last December I bought a new 500 f4 lens which was quoted to receive a free polarizer filter, but it never came. I have no idea what's going on there, but it's suddenly different. B&H for me forward.
