Everyone is saying "good luck", as if the D3 is hard to come by. The street date still hasn't happened. We know big orders are incoming. I know a new camera is exciting, but seriously... a little perspective here people.

I had a pre-order in with Amazon and now I'm sitting here holding my 5D Mark III, but no thanks to Amazon.  I'm surprised at what poor service they provided here.  I won't be pre-ordering any more high-demand items from them again.

Thanks to this forum I went down to San Jose Camera to pick up my camera.  They still have a few left, so hurry down there like I just did! I love you guys.

I'm surprised more people are not ditching Amazon at this point and going with independent stores...

If anyone uses the "tax" excuse, it's just stupid. You have to declare it eventually...
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.

I thought it was most states, but I may be wrong! Hey, if you don't need to declare it, then that sounds good!

For what it's worth, I paid $225 tax on mine...

Good news / bad news time for B&H orders:

I just livechatted with a Customer services rep called Greg. I was patient, and asked if he could tell me if my order was likely to make the first batch, and apologised for hassling him as they must have millions of these enquiries.

Also don't forget, there were close to 2000 orders we think before me in the line (order ends 544xx)

He says my order will be filled "sometime next week"

So yay, as I don't need it until the week after. And also yay, as it's a big shipment, and I'm guessing they'll be flat out filling the orders over the weekend.
Boo for all those hoping for a camera from B&H by the weekend, I guess.

My B&H order ends with 536xx, and was confirmed on the first order, but was also told that mine wouldn't ship till next week.

I wonder what the hell is happening with amazon.com...  the least they could do is give some estimate of time.   >:(

Amazon warehouses are enormous, (as in, the size of a town - google it) and all over the country. Their stock is kept all over the place to aid distribution. Customer services will have no idea what is coming in (Amazon a) sells EVERYTHING, and b) also re-sells for many vendors) or when it's available.

It's like going to the supermarket for flowers, and calling ahead to ask what kind of tulips they have. Call the flower shop, they'll know, it's their business. The guy on the phone at the supermarket will just tell you he's got flowers, and you can have a bunch soon.*



*this metaphor sounded way better in my head.

Got a sad email that my ordered had been denied.  Called my bank, seems they have a new limit.  Got that changed, which was oddly very dificult.  It should have been step 1) see if money is in account. step 2) approve.  Regardless, they raised the limit, Adorama reran it and my camera should be on the way no later than tomorrow.

Kenmore seems to have come through !! Just got the tracking number from them, should be with me within 2 days. Called up BH to cancel pre-order, they still dont have a clue when they will get stock or push them out. I ordered on the 6th so wasn't hoping on making into the first cut of people. Now I breathe a little more easier and relax while the camera makes it way to me. Excellent service at Kenmore. Will post again when I have it with me. All the best to the others !!  the wallet just feels lighter all of a sudden :P
