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.
