I just put in my D700 pre-order and deposit at Berger Bros Camera in NY a few hours ago. I checked B&H and don't see a listing yet. Price is about $3,200 which is probably a bit more then it will be at B&H, but I like the shop and live nearby.
This is the camera I've been waiting for. Smaller sized D3 with the option to go "full speed" with the power grip.
I can't wait, time to think about converting my D100 to IR and retiring it from the front line.
#3. "RE: Pre-orders being taken @ Berger Bros." In response to Reply # 2
I switched from being #23 no-deposit preorder list at the larger store to $500 deposit preorder #2 in my comfortable smaller store. Reason-I'm told Nikon typically sends 2 each to all stores on first go regardless of store prominence and typically 4-6 weeks after announcement. Price $2999 and I'm rooting for typicals. I'll get a 24-70mm 2.8 with it so I can use it in the store parking lot. Read the manual later at home.
