Amazon D800 Shipping Soon
Apr 30, 2012

Just checked my Amazon account and the shipping status is now "Shipping Soon".

I ordered on 2/7 at 2:06 am EST.

I also received the email yesterday 4/29 requesting my approval for a delay. I did approve the delay if that helps.

Hopefully it shows up soon!

Great news.

However, using very fuzzy math, it's taken over a month to get through 2 hours of preorders. At this pace, assuming orders sped up during the regular waking hours, then slowed down later on 2/7, averaging to the same rate as the first 2 hours, it would take a year to get through orders placed the first day.

Great news indeed! I ordered a few hours after you and I hope Amazon received enough D800's to get to me. Otherwise, it'll probably be another month! dave

LOL! I've done that very same fuzzy math ... and I've ordered several weeks after the ordering queue opened (with B&H, but it doesn't look like it is doing any better than Amazon).

Let's see, my order will come by ... When is the D800 successor going to be released again

Me too! Thanks for the heads up.

I ordered a bit before you and now see the same status with an estimated delivery of this Wednesday or Thursday.

I will be more convinced when I see a tracking number, but this still makes me very happy!

ordered Feb 6th 11:30 PST,

however I had changed the shipping speed a couple of times since then (as much as a month after I ordered)

any idea if that changes my position in the queue?

Just got an email from Amazon saying I should receive it 5/2 - 5/3. Ordered it on Feb 6th 11:37pm PST.

I didn't think it would ever happen. [sniff] [sniff] Thank you all for your support through these tough times.

I changed my shipping address a few times and that bumped me to the bottom of the line (a frustrating fact I confirmed with multiple Amazon CS reps on multiple occasions)

So, if I changed my shipping last week on a D800E, then you are saying it's as if I put the order in last week and not on Feb 7th?

Changing your shipping delivery speed DOES NOT bump you to the bottom of the line. The only way this would happen is if you cancel your order and then purchase again.

You are now connected to Francis from Amazon.com.
Francis:Hello there Chris! My name is Francis!
Me:Hello.

Francis:I'm really sorry if you haven't received your order yet Chris. This doesn't really happen all the time. Let me go ahead and check you account and make things right for you.

Are we talking about this item "Nikon D800 36.3 MP CMOS FX-Format Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) "?

Me:yes. If I change the shipping speed, does that bump me to the bottom of the que?
Francis:No.

This is good news. Now anybody received confirmation of a D800E order from Amazon, or is everyone waiting on D800s from Feb 6/7th?
