I'm surprised more people are not ditching Amazon at this point and going with independent stores...How is saving almost $400 stupid? Where I live we do not have to report purchases from out of state that we didn't pay taxes on. I know of very few states that do.
If anyone uses the "tax" excuse, it's just stupid. You have to declare it eventually...
Ordered from Adorama on 3/5. $50 test charge has been made. Called and the camera will ship today.Same here except I have a full charge on my credit card. Got an email saying it has been packed and will ship by end of today.
I don't know what everyone else thinks, but this business of the retailers "not knowing" how many units they are getting in the first batch seems very likely to be BS. It could be that the CS do not know because they are not told, but it is close to certain that others in the retailer's organizations DO know. In any case, I suspect many of the retailers that "do not have the cameras until the 22nd", actually have received the shipments but cannot release them. Again, they know how many they have (unless they cannot count boxes).
Pretty clear that management is just trying to keep pre-order customers from jumping ship. Of course that will not work in the (somewhat unlikely but possible) event that someone finds one in a brick and mortar store. In fact, I plan to check a couple when I go to the nearby medium sized city late next week. You can be sure I will bring the phone and order number for my pre-order retailer with me and would cancel in a heartbeat if I can get one locally for what would almost certainly be the same price.
What lens hood is that ?
IIRC, both the 24-105mm's and the 24-70's hoods are petal shaped.
