Very unlikely I'll buy another damn item from B&H. Camera was to ship overnight delivery, well it has shipped but delivery is by end of day Thursday. 3 day is not next day. That's it for me.

I hate this thread. Took me 4 days to convince my wife this was a smart purchase so I should receive my lens from BH first part of 2020.

B-H tossed a little B-S! Via e-mail I show delivery in 3 days, no overnight like the order stated. Pisses me off big time.


adorama shipped mine next day air, and I'm only 1 day via ground, I thought that was overkill.
but the markup is big on bodies, so it's no big deal.

Eh. As far as "apologies" go, what does a little faster shipping matter. Now if they'd thrown in XQD cards...

Principle of the deal, I did not ask for nest day, they said I'd get it. Fact is Henry said here on FM all pre-ordered D850's will ship next day.
! I have plenty XQD's I bought from B-H for the D500 that I can use.

I am with you. You should return the camera. That will show 'em.

I am still showing back ordered and no email for B&H 8/24 8:50am et paypal order. They have had my money since 8/24 but no communication and no camera. I am not a large purchaser at B&H but have always spent my photography dollars - multiple $0000 there + this order. Others that ordered hours later are showing order status shipped so B&H is not using order time / date as their criteria for selecting who will receive their order from the latest shipment but some other parameter. I understand serving their best customers first but 20-20 I think I would have been better served with Amazon who states first come first served ( where I spend $00000 yearly ) on this order. No local retailers to purchase from.

Good luck, but you'd probably have the same problem no matter where you ordered. I pre-ordered on 8/26 from another retailer and did not here anything, either. At least they didn't charge my card. I said screw it and cancelled today. Maybe once some real reviews come in, I'll reconsider. I'd rather wait and see how everything plays out before investing that much cash.

The should not be charging cards. Adorama didn't charge until the camera was in stock.

I placed pre-order at B&H on 8/24 at 8:16 or 8:18 AM. No word yet.

I leave for a photo trip on 09/24th so I will wait to receive D850 in my hands by 23rd Sept. If B&H does not get me one by then, I'd cancel my order and start looking at used market in few months. I don't have any photography plans between Oct and Feb. so i can afford to wait. Although I'd love to take it with me on my Southwest trip this month.

I could be wrong, but I can't imagine many used D850s being available in the next few months. shrug

Yea, can't say. But I am not loosing anything in waiting :-). If i have to pay full price by early next year the inventory may be enough to get a deal from these retailers. Why blocks funds for 4-4.5 months when it will just sit in closet

I am starting to believe the order shipments are not in the order of merit i.e. Pre order sequence. Some funky logic is deciding who gets.

My semi educated guess is:
1. NPS members in order of submission... even if an NPS member rolled out of bed the morning of the 25th, my assumption is they would ship before everyone else.
2. Everyone else in order of order placed... but who knows!

*^ remember there is a disproportionate number of NPS members on here so keep that in mind when viewing why someone else got a cam before you.

All this from the bitter guy that ordered on the 27th! (Aka me)

Might be too late for some, but if you buy from B&H or Adorama and pay with PayPal, the money comes out right away, even if it ships 6 months later.
And to try to get the money back is a pain in the A, you have to contact PayPal, then contact the seller then contact PayPal again...
I learned the hard way.
Just use a credit card.

Great plan, I'll do that. I'll stick it to the man!
BTW, to those monitoring order placement, I placed my order at 5.40 AM local, which is 6.40 B-H time.
