'Following on from our email sent on Monday 7th May regarding your Nikon D800 Digital SLR Camera order #026-8512126-xxxxxxx, we're writing to let you know that we'll be creating a new order for you for the Nikon D800 Digital SLR Camera today, 9th May 2012.

When we place this order for you, you'll receive a standard Amazon order confirmation e-mail showing a different price of £2,599.99 which is different to your original order. Please ignore the price stated in this email as we'll immediately be adjusting this to your original order price (including VAT) of 1749.99. You can see the adjusted price information in 'Your Orders' within 'Your Account' on Amazon.co.uk. As with all Amazon orders your credit card will not be charged until the item is ready to dispatch.

As you are aware, we're working with Nikon to ensure we're able to fulfil all customer orders as quickly as possible. Your original place in the queue will be maintained and we'll update you with an estimated delivery date as soon as we have more information.

I assume they meant ' excluding VAT' rather than ' including ' VAT in the above

They obviously spotted the error about the price. My e-mail said: "Please ignore the price stated in this email as we'll immediately be adjusting this to your original order price (including VAT) of 2099.99."

Bonus!

Yes got the same email.

I would like to think that there is some urgency now between Amazon and Nikon to get us our D800's ASAP. At least it is now concrete on the price of £2099 which is a bonus. However none of us are any the wiser as to how long before we have D800 in our hands. Let's hope it's weeks rather then months!?

On another note a completely different question! I have put this in the lens forum but no takers so far. Is there a Handle that can be fitted to the foot of the Nikon 70-200. I often carry my set up by the foot and as with Sigma (50-500) they have a very comforrtable carry handle built in. Just wondered if anything like that is available for purchase?

Cheers, Mark (winter1)

To winter1 - try Kirk...

Beam me up Scotty. Kirk enterprises seem to have just what you want.

There may be others but this is the one I'm aware of. I thought of buying one for a 200 - 400 but a D4 came and ate my bank balance. I've had to hide the chequebook and the credit cards.

Many thanks for the info. Just what I was looking for but a bit steep at $125! Will try and track down something similar here in UK but thanks again for your help.

Hi Andrew, Thanks for the info. Looks like a possibility / another option so thanks for that.

Re delivery dates / D800. Yes I guess I was hoping for something a bit sooner but at least we have a date so I should be thankful.

Cheers, Mark

Preparing for Despatch!!!!!!!!
In reply to MattiusGB, May 9, 2012

Wow. Just checked order status in "my orders" and it says "preparing for despatch".

Now under normal circumstances I would consider that to mean "we are boxing it up and it will leave us very soon" but having been on the rollercoaster of emotions that is the D800 I really don't know!? No doubt though, it definitely says "preparing for despatch"

Will keep you updated but maybe, just maybe there is some good news coming!

Cheers, Mark (winter1)

This is fairly standard on new (pre) orders from amazon. It will soon change from preparing to dispatch to Not Yet Shipped. I wouldn't get too excited. My original order went through the same stages before the product was even released.

Hi Andrew,

email confirmation of the original order came through from Amazon at 13.36 on 16th.

I must admit it does sound promising but I don't like to get my hopes up!

Rgds, Mark.

Thanks for the updates, everyone...Finding them very helpful...Just out of curiosity, has anyone had the price adjustment from the £2,599 to the £2,099 happen yet (as mentioned in the email sent this morning?
