Fuji will likely miss a lot of sales if they don't get the kit out before Christmas I would imagine.

Miss sales? They can't make enough of them. And, in other countries, they sell at higher prices. Xmas? Hopefully people are buying the camera as a primary criteria, not an Xmas gift.

Ive never understood the instant gratification needs of some buyers. It frequently appears that the gratification takes priority over the camera as they frequently cancel orders and buy whatever's in stock.

Simple economics. A lot of people budget money for purchases this time of year. If "X" item doesn't make it on the shelves before Christmas, sales will decline.

You and I have a far different view of instant gratification as well. I ordered this camera back in September. Retailers listed early November as the delivery date. I think the real issue here is a lack of communication between distribution and the retailers. It would be nice to have a good idea as if this kit will be available or not.

I never understood why folks take the time to reply to a topic thread (missing the main purpose of the thread mind you) with a negative comment.

Agree completely. Why is it that every jacka$$ known to man hangs around here with the sole purpose of jumping people in threads that they know nothing about.

Nothing to do with instant gratification. In my case, its a matter of having the camera to enjoy the holidays with. Nothing more, nothing less. Sorry if that bursts your bubble of negativity.

Well, I hope you can enjoy your holidays even if you don't get your camera in time.  Yes, the comment you made is quite aligned with my negative comment.  Enjoying one's holidays conditioned on arrival of a new camera?
