Today is the 131st day of waiting for my Nikon D800 camera pre-ordered online at Adorama.com. This morning I received Adorama’s (seems becoming weekly) “We’re sorry for the wait” email and decided to do some research on the shipment of Nikon D800 orders from three big suppliers Adorama, B&H, and Amazon.
According to the information posted by other buyers on dpreview.com and nikonrumors.com message boards, Amazon ships its orders faster or had less orders in the first days after the announcement of Nikon D800 camera. Adorama and B&H, however, are still shipping out the orders placed on the very first day.
As reported by other buyers, the latest order dates for delivered Nikon D800 cameras are:
Amazon: 2012-03-23 12AM EST
Adorama: 2012-02-07 10PM EST
B&H: 2012-02-07 11AM EST

This week I received a few email-notices from suppliers. They have notified me that D800 became available for purchase and is currently in stock. It took eight+ months for Nikon D800 to become available for direct purchase. Unbelievable!
