Curious about B&H & mkiii shipments
« on: March 24, 2012, 03:18:47 PM »
Hello!
I'm wondering what the highest B&H body-only order # that has shipped (of those that frequent the CR Forum). I ordered at 8:03am MST on 3/02 (o/n 577xx).
Clearly, I wasn't on the first wave of shipments; but since it's looking as if B&H is going to have a bottleneck over the next week or two (given the upcoming Passover break), I'm trying to gauge how far out my order will ship. If there's a chance it won't be out before the Thursday before Passover, I'll bail and buy elsewhere.
I'm sure there are others with the same question/concern.
Thanks!

Everyone is a 101. The last 5 digits is more accurate. "xx" out the last 2.

mine arrived fine; order process on Thursday and received on Friday per the shipping option that I choose.

I was nervous at first due to B&H lack of comments but in the end, i received it as promised.

What was your order number?
Thanks for the info, but it's useless in trying to discern how far along they are with fulfilling orders without an order number. There are several preorder threads going, but none are hitting on where things are after the first wave went out.

I ordered mine at about 4:30 AM CST on March 02.

Order number: 553xx

Still "backordered".

Perhaps I can set a model for the answers that you (and I) hope to get on this thread.

My order was number 565xx and I ordered at 7:40 CST on 3/2.

I was not in the first shipment. I contacted B&H 3/22 afternoon and they said I would be included in their shipment next week. I'm not taking that to the bank, but at least I'm hopeful. I'm disappointed that I wasn't in their first shipment, but it is understandable due to the high demand. Have Best Buy or Amazon filled their orders in quantity?

 :-[ whoops, here we are then...  557xx .

that was for 2 body only cameras, at 7-730 am EST 3/2.  It's not that i'm worried or anything, B&H is the best, i'm just looking forward to getting my hands on it.

Body only- 597xx on 3/2 a little after lunch time.  I guess I didn't stand a chance. There were order numbers MUCH lower than mine that didn't go out, either.  I actually ordered the kit from them Thursday afternoon(3/22 approx. 3:30pm) and had it Friday morning about 9:30am.  Planning on selling the 24-105mm that came with it since I already have one and I'll cancel my "pre-order" since I safely have one in my hands, now.

No worries. Thanks!
So you're about 2000 orders ahead of me. Yikes.
If I'm not in the next wave, I may actually accrue the cash to pay the thing off up front; which would be cool.

Agreed, B&H is the best. I've bought exclusively from them even though I moved out of NYC 8 years ago.
Regardless of where things are with these orders, we need to hand it to B&H's shipping department.

Think positively, folks!

Hi folks. Been lurking since August, when I bought my first DSLR, a Rebel t2i. Now ordered a 5DM3 to learn FF.

I ordered my 5DM3 + lens kit on 03/15/2012 from B&H. They shipped it 03/22, but said I won't receive it until 03/29. Most likely due to my standard shipping, and it coming from New York to California where I live.

I was order number 531xx and was part of the first shipment. I hope that help, although it seems most people don't understand the purpose of this post...
