For preorders...

You are often better off ordering from your local camera shop.

In all cases, you end up paying full list price, because the item is brand new, and much in demand. People will preorder from B&H or Amazon thinking "the big dealers will get more stock, and get it faster."

However, being so big also means they will get thousands of orders.

Sometimes, you can get a camera faster by being #3 on a small list, rather than being #128 on a very long list. And it seems your real issue with B&H just boils down to wanting then to ship a camera that they don't have yet.

On a completely non-related matter... I have huge respect for those Naval Academy grads too. They are every bit as outstanding as the men and women who attended the USMA.

However, their recent performance in football makes me wonder if they are recruiting ringers. They have absolutely no good explanation for winning 13 of the last 15 games!

Hopefully, this will all change starting with their next meeting in Philadelphia this year.
