Can you relate to my impatience? In my possession, I have the D800 battery grip, the RRS L plate, the Nikon microphone, a 64 gb card, Light room 4, Power director 10 Ultra, and a new computer with 32 gb of memory and the I7-2700K processor. I have great Nikon lenses and I sold all my cameras. Are you in a similar position?

One guy in our club reported today although he's #8 in line at B&H for an 800, they told him today they did not expect any more shipments until May. Hard to believe (given the volume B&H must sell) but that's what they said. Hope it's not true cause I'm down the line from him.

I can relate 100%.
There is a lot to be said for impatience, emotion and even impracticality. Sometimes I like to think of myself of the high priest of some of that. It is fun.
This time I am attempting to exercise some degree of restraint and decide if I want the 800 or the 800 E. I can tell you it is not easy for me. Yesterday, I was surfing the net looking at 32 GB, i7 computers, even though my iMac with 8GB works fine. I figure I can rationalize that expenditure by giving my current computer to one of my children.
With all that said, my wife thinks I am nuts. But the bar is high for me. I once went out for a hot dog and came back with a Porsche. Hat off to you!!! Good luck!

Yes, Rob and the other end of the strap attaches to the camera. Some RRS L-plates also have a webbing slot on the side of the plate so you need not connect to the camera body. BTW, I got the plate for the D800 without grip even though I bought the grip.
