I just got back from Best Buy. They called e at 3pm pst and had 30 in warehouse. By the time I got there after work they had 1. I had to place the order from inside a branch thus the delay. I am supposed to get it tomorrow or the next day. No tracking info yet. Wouldn't surprise me if the inventory is off and it isn't actually there for me. Will update if I get tracking email.

It is. Unless you are a silver premier member. Then it is 45 days.

I called my local BB store here in Davenport, FL at 8:25pm and a rep told me that they had 29 in stock in a warehouse, that I needed to come down to the store and place the order in place.

I jumped into my card and got there at 8:50pm, the rep showed me the screen from the warehouse inventory and it showed 28 in stock!!!

I paid fully in advance and received a fulfillment date of April 28th for in store pick-up, a few minutes later I got an email saying "We received your order; Wait to pick up".

I've orders since day one in Adorama and still shows "Pending - Phase 1", Amazon says Estimate delivery date April 16th - May 1st".

Crossing my fingers!!!!!!!!

I will let you know how this story evolve....xD

just did the same thing here in Phoenix after the disaster earlier in the day ordering on line. My in store order says 4-29. I am highly skeptical at this point and my bank account could not take a 3rd debit....

And, backordered. Not surprised. Their inventory system has always been poor.

Humorous conversation with a older BB salesperson on the phone today. He said he's been a Nikon film guy all his life, and he hadn't heard of the D800. When he looked at the specs he started freaking about how awesome it was, 36 megapixels!! amazing resolution, serious piece of camera equipment,etc. He couldn't find one for me and mentioned that Nikon , and I quote "had everyone by the short and curlies." He then asked if i needed an F3 from his personal collection.
