Wait another stinking week?!

Most of the sites now show the D7100 not shipping until March 21. Rats, I want what I want when I want it now I have to wait (im)patiently another week at least.

I saw Adorama says the 21st and B&H says the 14th.  Amazon's page turned from the 14th to OOS.  What other sites changed?

Re: Wait another stinking week?!

I wonder if Nikon is shipping out to the local retailers before they ship out to the large online retailers like B&H and Amazon.

I would rather buy from my local store and I have my name on their list, so I'm hopping that they give me a call by Friday or Saturday.

Doubt it, large customers get priority service - the same in any business.

Emailed Adorama about, no reply as yet.

You have it easy compared to my plight. I want the D7200 to be my upgrade so I'll be waiting another couple of years for that model. Not only that, rumor has it that by that time we'll discover that the D7100 was the last of the line, and the D5400 will be positioned as Nikon's flagship DX camera.

Believe it or not. Or not. Or not. Or not ...

Re: Wait another stinking week?!

Notice the Adorama web site has a "shipping on a limited basis", haven't updated my order (first day available) & won't respond to emails.

Thanks Fail-o-rama. Should known nothing with them will ever change.

You think that's a long wait. I've got to wait about a year to see if this camera model develops any deal-breaker issues, and for the price to come down

Fortunately I like my D90s (and even my old carry with me everywhere D70).

Amazon had 'Shipping March 14th'.  Now they have Out Of Stock.

If I find it else where I will cancel and re-order.

It'll get here soon enough...it's not like waiting for your first baby to be born, and you won't have to change it's diapers, just it's lens, although it could have back-focus issues.

Re: Wait another stinking week?!

Just got email from B & H that mine is shipping today (body only).  I pre-ordered within hours of Nikon's announcement.  Had just passed my D7000 along to my son (who is more of a videographer than I am). Nikon fixed the only two things I didn't like about it -- the position of the video-on button (which I always felt got in the way of my using the AF-L button to initiate autofocus), and the lack of an OK button one-step zoom during review (like on Nikon's other higher-priced bodies).  Oh, and the 24 MP sensor with no OLPF also sounded like a good upgrade, too.  Can't wait to receive it and try it out!

You don't have to wait that long. Price has dropped $100 for body + 18-105 kit lens.

Makes you wonder if March 15, Nikon will announce another camera + lens deals to go with the current lens only deals. You did stock up on a FX 50 1.8G @ $199.

Re: Wait another stinking week?!

No back focus issues so far, but I haven't put it through paces.  I'll try tungsten tonight.  It has very sharp OOC jpegs, haven't had time for raws.

I'm in Australia. Price for this lens here is about $270 for an Australian copy. I have the 1.8d and that's good enough for me for now.

Thanks, I finally did get an answer........I guess you folks were a bit overwhelmed - combine that with my impatience = a bit of embarrassment on my part

Tried to withdraw my post but it won't let me, which is a bummer as sometimes information changes past the 15 minute (or whatever it is) limit.
