Always glad to see a big rush of early adopters .....

.. they can help sort out any initial product teething problems to smooth the way later for those not in quite such a rush ....

Re: Always glad to see a big rush of early adopters .....

I don't think it's wise to buy something as complicated as a new DSLR camera as soon as they come out. For numerous reasons I believe it to be wise to wait for not only the reviews to come out but to see if the cameras has bugs waiting for firmware updates to fix them.I'll wait to see what happens.

Absolutely!

.. My sentiments exactly. It sure sounds like a nice thing though!

Jealous much ?

There is just about zero risk in being an "early adopter" of a DSLR model.

Are we scared the camera isn't going to work ? Nope. Won't take good pictures ? Nope. About the only thing is that there will probably be a few firmware updates. Big deal.

BTW: the term "early adopter" generally refers to a technology class such as PCs, cell phones, DSLRs, etc. rather than specific products such as the D7000.

What you probably mean to say is "early purchaser".

Chaqu'un ...

.. à son goût!

Thanks for the correction - even if it was somewhat didactic.

Re: Good job !

I called my Best Buy and she initially took my name and said she would put one on hold for me. Two minutes later I get a call back saying they aren't allowed to sell them yet and that they'll be available next week. Odd...

If you are lucky and go to the store and talk to a different salesman, you may be able to be in and out before they realize their mistake! It looks like the OP was lucky enough to have done the same thing...

Well, his gain is the rest of our gain too, as we will now get some real life (non paid) reviews. Apparently they are saying early November for my local store, but a good 2 weeks of reviews should help make sure I know what I am getting

Cheers

Re: Always glad to see a big rush of early adopters .....

there's no risk - you can return the camera if you are not happy with it.

Most of the online retailers provide a 30 day return period - you pay the postage but that's it.

Here in the EU, there is a forced minimum guaranteed period of 7 days when ordering anything from the internet - every single online retailer within the EU must accept my return if I send the package back within 7 days since I recieved it. In some countries, its 14 days.
