Consider yourself fortunate. I placed my order on April 1st (April Fool Day). My decision was between the D800 and D800 E. I choose the D800 after reading reviews on Nikonians. Thus far Amazon has not even provided me with a "window" or timeframe when the camera may arrive. At this point, I will be content to receive the camera before June 15th.
If I do not receive any further notification from Amazon by May 15th then I will look at other options to purchase the D800. I sincerely believe that Amazon has minimal control over their D800 allocation... same for B & H. Good luck.
