I've been getting FedEx deliveries on Sunday. I think its because of the volume of shipments that they are delivering 7 days a week. Mine is in the local FedEx facility but not listing as being on a truck. It just arrived from sorting 40 minutes ago.Mine too! Showing delivery estimate of October 4th...A Sunday!?! I'm surprised, because I had originally ordered the R6, after two weeks got more ambitious, and then changed it to the R5, which would have been the first week of September. So, that's about a month for mine. And I had the $200 discount also, applied during the waiting period.
Who was it who alerted us here about the Kelby Landscape discount? I'm so sorry I forgot! BUT THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
That's unfortunate. I think you can also conditionally accept one but if there is a problem, it could be a hassle. B&H will put it in a new box and resend it I expect.FedEx strikes again! R5 shipping carton came crushed on both ends, plus quite damp, even though I went out to the truck to accept delivery. (So it was already wet, not just from the drizzle we had at the time.)
Sure, I thought the damage was most likely from shoving packages into the truck too tightly, but quite a bit of the threaded packing tape was ripped open too. Just no way, for an item this price, I was going to accept delivery.
And of course this week is a holiday for B&H, meaning no replacement lined up. But at least they should have it back on their receiving dock by the time they reopen.
And I had used my R to update the lens firmware this morning! And I EVEN TOOK A SHOWER TO BE READY FOR THE R5!
Sorry to hear you also had some cause for concern. In our area Sunday delivery seems to have the worst luck. In fact the FedEx guy wore no uniform and his white van had no logo. When I choose next day or overnight, whatever next level of shipping is, the one that costs about $20 more, it always comes on a weekday, and the delivery person has a uniform and a really professional attitude. I forgot about it a month ago when I ordered the camera. Next week when I am able to speak to customer service I will pay extra again.That's unfortunate. I think you can also conditionally accept one but if there is a problem, it could be a hassle. B&H will put it in a new box and resend it I expect.
My camera box inside had a small crease in the top. It was in a box with 3 air bags that are pretty useless in preventing a crushed outer box. B&H used to use some extras heavy duty bubble wrap that actually protected the contents. There was no damage to the outer box and the camera had a seal with its serial number on the inner bag that held it.
that's the first time I've seen that.
Funny thing today, the same FedEx driver showed up late this afternoon, a Monday, attempting to deliver the same package. He realized his mistake as soon as he saw me, then explained that "the guys" had put it back on his truck even though it had been "106'd," that is, refused by customer. So we chatted and he let me open the package to peek inside and see if the damage of the outer box had affected the inner...Sadly, yes, quite noticeably, the inner box had been creased by being crushed a little with outer carton.No issues here, but yes, the packaging was atypical for B&H. Large box with minimal bubble wrap. The R5 box from canon is also not all that sturdy. But, unscathed and the R5 already has 1200 pics on it.
dunno but Adorama has R6 bodies in "low quantity" at the moment of this postOn Amazon, I have an R6 in my shopping cart. I notice that the past week, each day it shows as being ready to ship one or two days later than the previous days.
So Monday this week, October 22nd was the expected ship date. Tuesday, October 23. Yesterday, October 24. Today, jumped a bit, October 26.
If the bodies are being delivered in big batches, why is Amazon indicating they are trickling in a few at a time? Any conjectures?
