Last Thursday I bought a D4S from Adorama. I placed the order although the camera was listed as being on back-order. Much to my surprise it shipped the next day. I will have it tomorrow

I checked B&H first and they where only taking "pre-orders".

Same thing happened when I bought a D4 a couple years ago. I was on the B&H waiting list for two months and finally gave-up and started checking Best Buy's site early in the morning. I was able to buy a camera in two days.

I remember reading how people from this forum were still waiting on B&H two months after I got mine.

B&H can't keep up with demand.

Unsophisticated buyers. Especially when a camera is first rolled out, nobody is discounting it anyway so "shopping around for availability can put a camera into your hands quicker than being on B&H's waiting lists. Finding one at a brick and mortar out of state can be fairly easy.
