BH told me their shipment from Nikon is delayed and they will not received any until Monday.

I placed my order yesterday. I was told I would not make the initial shipment.

I ordered on 06/29 and received an e-mail from B&H today telling me to be patient ("... as we haven't yet received the merchandise from our supplier"). A couple hours later, they charged my credit card. Online, on the B&H web page, the order status is "In stock, order sent to warehouse".

Update: I have a tracking number.

Second update: I have the D810 and have taken a number of out-of-focus pictures with it.

I am not sure whether this body needs significant AF fine tuning (my D700 did not need it) or whether I am doing something wrong, but for now I am not getting it right.

Third update: I got a few well focused ones under more controlled conditions (tripod, better light, macro lens). More tomorrow outside.

Fourth update:

The camera seems to be working fine (except trap focus!). Here are a couple pictures of a squirrel (I had no cat available) in low light (high-ish ISO) with little post processing and, most importantly, no AF fine tuning:
