I received a reply from Adorama to my email. It stated that they "hoped" to be able to fill the order on 11/06/10. They also made it clear this is based on what Nikon has told them. Having placed my order on 09/15/10 I'm in a good position on the list...they just don't have the product yet. Patience.
I called Adorama this morning, as they never responded to my email last week. They advised me they expected units in on November 10, and that my order would be processed as they arrived around the 10th.
