I call B&H earl;y this morning about a 1/2 hr after they opened and spoke to a CSR who basically said that the cameras arriving on the 23rd but didn't think I'd make the first pre-order, which I figured. However, he had no clue when the next order would go out. I called back after reading on this thread that someone was told that some cameras "had just been posted on their inventory." so I called back and this time asked to speak to a sales rep, gave him my order number and he told m he had no clue when the shipment was coming in that they were "waiting to hear from the manufacturer." Sound familiar? so I decided to call the closest camera store (1 1/2 hrs away) and confirm my spot which I reserved last night. They are getting several in and I'm 6th on the list so not today. But they expect a few to trickle in on a regular basis. So B&H order is about to be cancelled. If they just got a uniform story and were gave some bit of reliable info out... Oh, and I asked if they would be shipping from Apr 3-9 (Passover) and the SR said no they were closed. So they better get as many out as they can before then! Oh well, I'll spend the money in state. PS: they have a few kits available now so I floated the idea of adding my 24-105 to the sale of my 5DII to my son-in-law. The price is a bit higher than what he was expecting to pay for just the 5DII-so I hope to hear from him by the end of the day. Maybe I'll have one sooner than I think. anyway, good luck to everyone. I hope you all get your cameras soon.
