I have one on pre-order, but I am not sure what that means yet. Here, at the Atlanta store where I shop, there are over 40 of us on pre-order. I am not sure where I am on the list, but I know I am not very high.So...I am thinking maybe August or September. I am hoping I get it in time for a trip I have planned to New Mexico late in the summer.
Me too, Bob. The shop has been given a deposit and I was told I'm about #10. They expect to receive 20, but they're not sure all 20 will come in at once. They think they might be in mid-July, but that's probably just a guess.
I am a little nervous about being " the first on my block" with this new model. Usually, I wait to see what the " pioneers" have to say about a new product before I jump in, but it looks like I will be a pioneer myself this time. No too worried, though. Based on what I have read, it looks like a good camera. My coolpix 990 has served me well, but it is limited; so, I am eager to be able to use my lenses, filters, etc.
I reserved one on speculation early on in the game with an option to cancel. My pre-order has been converted to a back order with a July 8 ship date, and I'm inclined to go ahead and bite the bullet and get one based on the reviews I've seen and the good experience I have had with a compact digicam.
the shop I preordered from said that 15 of the cameras have shipped to them -- they should get them in the next few days -- can't find out where I am on the list until Monday....hopefully I'll have one in the next couple weeks....
