I'm sure most of you, like me, are scouring all the threads on the release between the gear talk and rumors but for those of you that aren't I'm going to post my update here, too. I received my order confirmation order at 2:33:02 AM CST. And my camera shipping status just changed to shipping soon.
I started the thread last night about Amazon putting my order in the shipping queue after I rec'd a call from my credit card company that my card had been charged. I called Chase Amazon and checked my account, they charged for the camera, changed the status to 'SHIPPING SOON' and sent me a confirming email. At this point I would hate to cancel Amazon's order but what exactly is 'SHIPPING SOON' mean.
Christmas is soon and so is a blue moon. I have the same order also at B&H that was placed March 2nd via Paypal. Paypal orders with B&H take the money from your account on the order day! So I'm already out $3,500 at B&H, no camera or indication they are shipping before Christmas and Amazon has charged my card $3,500 and still no delivery notice. At the moment, I'm out over $7,000 with nothing really to show for it. I've already lost a few nights sleep over this but I'm being optimistic that a few boxes will be here on Monday, ....before Christmas.
Thanks for listening. This is like group therapy, eh?
