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.
When were you told your order wouldn't ship until next week? My order ends with 528xx and I was told this morning I should be in the first shipment. It seemed to me like the first shipment orders would be sent out Thursday evening at earliest. I'm guessing you and I are about 800 orders apart in the queue.
I was told that at 12:15 pacific today.
Hmm... I hope that is wrong. My order is 527xx and my status was 'backordered' not 'preorder' when i put my order through. I was surprised it let me order it. I've confirmed with them in the past that everything should be ready to go. But, I assumed they would be sending them out tomorrow and next day shipping would get it to me on friday. I hope that's the case.
