How long to get D4S from B&H

I've placed my "pre-order" for a Nikon D4S at B&H, and I'm curious about how long it takes to ship, for those who have done likewise.

I notice it's in-stock at Amazon, but I want to get the 2% reward from B&H.

Thanks!

You're certainly going to beat anyone in New Zealand who wants one.

We are being told no stock at all until mid April and no idea what it will cost when it gets here!

Re: How long to get D4S from B&H

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.

Got mine from B&H last week - Took about 2 weeks and I didn't pre-order it at announcement!

Thanks jjnik. That's about what I was hoping for.

Have you checked with your local stores?  I know I bought my d4 from a local camera store when b&h photo did not have it.  Support our local stores.

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.
