3/3 4pm PST Order
3/27 6pm email confirmation for delivery
3/28 UPS Status: Out for Delivery!

My Location: SF, CA
Amazon Warehouse location: NV

Little frustrating... I ordered on 3/2 with next day delivery and yesterday the email said delivery date was estimated at the 29th. 

I've had Amazon pull the shipping date game more than a few times in the past though where they say it's not shipping till later and the package ends up arriving before I get the actual shipping email. 

Guess time will tell... still time left today for fedex to show up.   :)

If your shipping status has changed to "Shipping Soon", your camera will ship within the next day or so...From what I understand, they are "pre-allotting" them. Meaning they are assigning cameras as soon as they are notified they are shipping to their distribution centers instead of waiting to receive them first, then assign them to pre-orders...

FYI - Have you seen this: On the www.getdpi.com forum there is an Adorama camera somebody is willing to sell for $100 off list price. This guy had ordered from two places and when he wanted to cancel the second camera they offered him a price reduction. It hasn't sold yet ASFAIK, likely because that forum is full of medium format folk. He is going to return in to Adorama, if nobody wants it.

I preordered the morning of March 7 (in AL).  Got the email last night - "Estimated arrival date: May 22, 2012".

Got another email from Amazon this afternoon - "New estimated arrival date: April 03, 2012."  Charge is also now pending on CC and order status says "Shipping Soon."  Very excited!

Received e-mail from Amazon today (3/31).

Originally ordered body-only 3/11.
1st e-mail with estimated delivery: May 15th.
Today's e-mail with updated delivery time:  April 18th.  So be patient guys (and gals), yours also will be here sooner than you are thinking.

Another updated email, they're on fire with these now.

Today's arrival date is now April 6 - April 11 so it looks like Amazon possibly got more in shipment then they were expecting or "under promised to over deliver"

Original order: March 8
Original Shipping Email: May 8 - June 6
Edited Ship Date (as of Mar 31): April 16-19
Edited Ship Date (as of Apr 2): April 6-11
