I also ordered from B&H on 2/7, at 9:30 AM EST. When I went into their store 3 days later, 2/10, to put some cash on the order the customer rep told me, with surprise in his voice, that B&H had almost 4,000 preorders for the D800 by that morning. Amazing.

After 3 months and no action, I took a chance and walked into a local Ritz Camera store and placed an order, early May. Two weeks later the camera shipped, and I've been enjoying it since. Of course, I cancelled my B&H order.

Keep in mind that the size of the store doesn't help for shipments. As Thom Hogan has pointed out, US laws on fairness of distribution of imported goods must be directed eually to all retailers. In other words, you'll get the D800/E much faster at a small local store with a short or no waiting list.

I wish you a speedy delivery. You'll love the camera!
