RANT ALERT:

The thing that upset me greatly and sent me over the edge is that there is no way to find out from Amazon where your order is in the queue. In this day of computers and ERP systems software, there is no excuse not to be able to tell a customer where their order is in a queue.

What would you do with the information if they did give it to you. Would you feel better if they said you were number 10 on the list? What if they only receive 9 cameras to ship before August? You still have no camera. On the other hand, what if they tell you that you are number 999 on the list? Are you going to cancel your order? What if they get 1,000 cameras to ship and you just canceled an order that would have been filled?

What I would do with any information. It would allow me to make an informed decision. Stay the course or move on. In this example, if I were 10 on the list, I would most likely stay the course. If I were 1000 on the list I would likely move on.

In my case I "chose" to cancel my B&H order based on the lack of information. I'm not blaming B&H for the "unavailablilty" in any way shape or form. As a customer I just felt like I was on a floating on a boat in the ocean with no engine, sail, paddle, or map. So I just "decided" get out and sit on the sidelines for a spell and reevaluate my options. No harm no foul. So I am at square one and will get one more on my terms. I thought I would get lucky and be one of the firsts, but that ship has sailed. Life goes on.

Good things come to those who wait and I am taking advantage of the information that is now presenting itself by some of the 'capable" people who now own the D800 D4's and are now providing thoughful insight and contrasting comparisons beween other systems.
