    Wondering if anyone has heard when the grip for D850 will be released? NikonUSA site still says preorder? Looks like some places got the cameras pretty quick. I ordered the morning the first day it was offered for preorder. And they are just delivering today. Just wondering if the grip is already out in other countries?

    Can others edit my Photos:

    I would have thought they would have timed things to release together.

    That was my thinking. But it has shown preorder on NikonUSA since the camera was open for preorder. When the cameras sold out, NikonUSA switched from preorder to backordered. Frank got his camera in like 2 days. So seems like other countries got their initial shipments out sooner than others. Wondering if the grips are in similar situation.

    MB-D18 Grip is now shipping in Singapore. Another 2-4 weeks for the US market. Why Singapore gets it first have no clue. Guess somebody has to be first.

    Probably some delays in production so they didnt have enough of them ready.
