I wonder if I order a vertical grip at the same time if they will throw in free shipping. I was thinking of ordering one from Ritz since there is free shipping which will save $30.00. I wish I knew how much the EN-EL3e battery will be.
Edited to add: I was also a bit cautiuos from ordering from Berger Bros instead of Adorama (which may be offering free shipment on pre-orders) or B&H since if for any reason I am not happy with the camera (decide a D2X is that much better, hate CAM1000...) Berger Bros has a 15% restocking fee for returns, the other two simply have 14 days, no restocking fee

I know one member here (Merlin50) who had a problem with his first D2X and returned it to Berger Bros. for another. He had no problems making the exchange. There is a big difference when you can talk to the store owner on the phone and the owner is dedicated to quality customer service!
Not that anyone really cares, but I just had to report to the group that I broke down and added myself to the list at Bergers (much to the chagrin of my wife, I'm sure.) They're in the mid-90's now. Let's hope we see this great camera in our hands in 2005, not 2006!
Well that's great news. Perhaps the Nikon distributor will be willing to bend over backwards to help 100 Nikonians feel their bliss.
Hey, the more orders Berger Bros. can show, I think the more cameras they'll get, even if they can't satisfy all the pre-orders in the first shipment. Since I'm somewhere in the 40s, I can only hope they get at least half as many as they have on pre-order.
