Who has pre-ordered a 7D?

Just curious. If you can say when you ordered, and from where, it would give the rest of us some idea of the early demand.

I placed my order from Amazon at roughly 7:30am (Eastern time) on 7/1.

Re: Who has pre-ordered a 7D?

I ordered from Adorama the same day, but I don't know what time it was. It was in the afternoon.

Who has pre-ordered a 7D? More detail.

I've been watching, but none of the others have given details as to when/what time specifically.

Re: Who has pre-ordered a 7D?

The afternoon of 9/11 from Calumet Photographic. I was told I'm in the first batch and it should ship by the end of the month.

Re: Who has pre-ordered a 7D?

Pre-ordered from Amazon on August 31 around 9PM PST.

Called them a couple times for estimated delivery updates and all I have been told is "1 to 2 months" before they receive their shipments and then "5-9 days" for delivery to me.

They refused to give me any indication how high up on the list I am.

Re: Who has pre-ordered a 7D?

When did you see the announcement? I assumed that the item wasn't available for pre-order from Amazon until the morning of September 1, Eastern time. Now, you have me wondering. Maybe it was from 12:01 am Eastern on September 1, in which case 9:01 pm on August 31 on Pacific time would make you one of the very first on their list.

(I thought I was high up on the list, but now you have me wondering.)

Re: Who has pre-ordered a 7D?

I was anxiously awaiting the Canon announcement right at 9PM on the 31st. I had read they would do the announcement around 7AM in Europe so I just kept my eye out. Sure enough it was announced and Amazon had it up on their site. I spent a few minutes waffling on the purchase decision and then went ahead with it.

I am somewhat concerned because people seem to have had a lot of trouble with Amazon and pre-orders. I purchased the lens kit so I am hoping that doesn't set me back even more.

In any case, I am going to buy from the first place that has them in stock. B&H is on my list to watch out for.

Amazon on 9/1

Though if B&H gets them in stock before my Amazon order ships, I may try to get it ordered there.

I have mine ordered

and already sold my 50D with grip, extra batteries and extra charger since they will do me no good with the 7D. Can't wait to get it. I ordered it the 6th.

Re: Who has pre-ordered a 7D?

I ordered mine last week from Penn here in Virginia. I expect it'll be end of October before it shows up. I just want to have it for the upcoming holiday season. Washington is beautiful and quiet at Christmas.

Re: Who has pre-ordered a 7D?

Ordered from Berger Bros. right when the camera was announced. I'm told I'll be in the first batch and was one of the first to order.

Re: Who has pre-ordered a 7D?

Just a couple of days ago. I pre-ordered from Amazon. I know there might be a delay in getting it delivered since so many seem to have pre-ordered immediately, but I can wait. And I will be watching the early reviews from all of you so I will know if I should cancel my order.

Re: Who has pre-ordered a 7D?

I didn't.

After all my excitement about these features I wanted, I realized this is not the camera for me. If I am going to carry that size and weight, I want full frame. I neither shoot birds nor do sports. I will wait for the next 5D, which will have all these features and more. If any dollar gets out of my pocket, it will be for more great glass.

I did receive a notice to pre-order from Amazon, but I will let it pass.

If the Nikon D700s sells well, I may get my dream machine earlier than later.
