For anyone interested, I ordered the D800 around 7:00 AM EST on Feb 7th from B&H. They are shipping today (May 16th). I am not a NPS member.

That's good news. Don't forget the obligatory cat picture! One of the local shops told me that they got two in yesterday so I've moved two steps closer to the top of that food chain.

Plus B&H will have some gross profit dollars so that Henryp can be around for at least another day or two to tell us stories about the competitive landscape of the cutthroat camera selling world...

Attempted humor button off.

That's good to hear. I am in the "10 am bracket" of February 7th orders so it hopefully shouldn't be long...

Frightening thing is that the credit card I ordered the D800 with got hacked over the weekend - surprisingly to a vendor called "PAYPAL DIGITALREV" for many hundreds of dollars of phantom photog gear (does DPReview have a hacking division?). This card is now history and I am hoping to get another one in place before B&H says "ah, no credit card.... order cancelled" It would be my luck to have no card ready when the order is ready to ship....

When I eventually get my 800 - ordered around 11:00 am Feb 7th-
I'll have to photo a dead Possum,
cause I don't have a cat, I have 3 Schipperke 's and 2 Parrots.
They would make short work of any poor Feline!

I requested an estimated arrival date from B&H in early April, and the reply was to expect the camera in May so far they have meet the expectations assocated with thier estimated arrival date

Will any of you line up at B&H next time?
In reply to rb stevens, May 16, 2012

I ended up canceling at Adorama (D4) when Amazon reopened orders on March 8th. Got it a couple of weeks ago. I still don't know if Adorama filled orders.

I'll gladly continue ordering items that B&H Photo has in stock but I don't think i'll ever do a pre-order again.

Mine shipped as well.
In reply to rb stevens, May 17, 2012

After reading this post, I went and checked the website and saw that mine shipped as well. Amazing. I ordered 7:30AM on 2/7/12. I spoke with B&H earlier in the week and it was the same story we have all been hearing for months. I'm just glad it finally shipped.

It doesn't appear that anyone has received any D800E lately?

I am a long time customer of B&H and will continue to buy stuff from them but will not place a pre order with them again for big releases.

I placed an order with B&H for a D800e in early March and in the end cancelled it. Been shooting with a D800e for 3 weeks now.

This guy has also gained a long term customer.

At the rate they've been going, it seems B&H has been clearing one hour worth of pre-orders in one week. Last week it was 6:30 AM, this week it is 7:30 AM.

Unless there is a drastic increase of volume of shipments from Nikon (some suggested that whole lots are waiting for fixed batteries) it's easy to extrapolate and it is a loooong wait.
