Actually I'm from Calgary as well. And I got my camera from Memory Express as The Camera Store wanted full deposit and I was in some 200-300 spot in the line there. Memory Express has been working hard on their camera department and when I came to them asking for D800 they told me they will order it for me and that I'd be #1 in the line with not deposits as "We cannot take money for something you don't have yet, that would not be fair".
And when it came time to send the camera in, Memory Express told me that it could be better if I contact Nikon service directly as they experienced delays in Nikon getting back to them. So I did and that is how I was told to ship the camera to Vancouver location and not Toronto.
I didn't think about London Drugs. Should have come to think of it now.
I'm glad that your camera works fine. Means that they actually can deal with the issue.
As for that "scratch" I've got. I checked it over and over, I checked my D90 (which doesn't have it), I read a lot of comments by people who seem to treat other like idiots saying that "It's not a problem, all of them have it, now go and shoot something" only to read a lot of responses "No, my D800 doesn't have anything like that".
Yes, some will say that I'm nitpicking here, but I believe that $3000 piece of equipment should not have such flaws. When you go and buy $400 display you expect it not to have dead pixels, or when you buy a car you expect it to not fall apart if you steer left.
