Update got a email from ups that my package will be here tomorrow!
Don't thank them too well - it's poor form not to only charge your card on despatch.
Update: I also got an email from UPS indicating the camera is due to be delivered this Wednesday. While I'm happy that the camera is on its way, I'm not crazy about the fact that my credit card was billed two weeks ago when I ordered and not when the camera was shipped. No real harm done, I guess, but this was the first time I bought from Abe's and will be a factor the next time I buy something. I've bought from Adorama and B & H often and neither of them bill until the item is shipped.
Food for thought!
