"RE: How long to get D4 delivery?"

I just ordered a D4 from Calumet where I live in San Francisco.

I ordered it on the March 8.

I was told by the sales rep that there are currently 18 pre-orders at this location and a total of 30 that she can tell for all of Calumet at that time.

She also informed me that it looks like it's going to be about at least an 8 week wait.

I had pre-paid half in cash, and the other half on credit that would be charged when the unit arrives. I let them know that I'm OK with completing the transaction but they couldn't until the item was in stock.

But she informed me and also noted on my reservation that I had put a 50% cash deposit down and that would bump me up on the waiting list so I'm not sure if I'm #19 in San Francisco or #1 now. She did say that a lot of people who ordered one did not put any money down on their orders but that was still vague as far as what position I was in.

As soon as I get any word of my order I'll post a reply here if anyone is still trying to guage what their wait times might be.

Right before I placed my order at Calumet, I had called Keeble & Schucat in Palo Alto, CA, and the rep on the phone informed me that the wait time would also be at least 8 to 20 weeks, with orders going to NPS members and anyone working as a photographer at the Olympic games. Now I'm not sure what type of credentials anyone would need to provide for proving employment as a photographer at the Olympic games but I thought that was interesting.

I'm not an NPS member. I am hoping that putting cold hard cash down helps against the storefronts waiting list, but I know it's all about Nikon's production and delivery... I'm just very anxious now...
