I picked up my D3 and 14-24mm at Roberts in Indianapolis this morning. I am NOT NPS. They received 104 bodies, of which 74 were allocated to NPS. The rest went to non-NPS people who had pre-ordered. Unfortunately, there are none remaining from this shipment, and they don't know the size or date of the next shipment.
That is great, take the rest of the week off. I hope the shop I ordered from has some left over after the NPS gets theirs. Unfortunately, they do not have a positive attitude. They keep telling me not to expect it before the first of the year. Agghh and I am # 3 on their list. So I backed up a order with Ritz just incase.
Enjoy yourself, and be sure to post pics and thoughts, so while we wait, we can have some fun watching the excitement.
I just picked my D3 up from Roberts as well. It might be worth a call to see if any of their first shipment are still avaliable. There was a pile of them still there, and I overherd a phone conversation suggesting that some may be unclaimed at this point.

I doubt it. There is a long list of people on their waiting list. Myself included. If some did back out they have a list go down.
I gave them a call, just to check. DOrris said no, there were not any available.
Got mine 5pm Nov 30, Hong Kong Time. Still have several of them available. It don't seems to have shortage here in Hong Kong. Love it right I get it out of the box. Will spent whole day tomorrow to take pictures with it.
Where did you get your D3 in HK? Just went to HK today from Shenzhen however, most of the shops I went D3 are already sold out So it seems there's a shortage after all. One shop told me it may be available on December 10.
