    I am looking at purchasing a D3 but they are out of stock everywhere. I was wondering if anyone knew what the wait time on one was? I would want it by the middle of April.

    Rowe does not carry the D series. That is what the salesman said when I called.

    That's just the way it works man they drum up excitement shor the supply get everyone excited to buy them and then in a year cut the price by like $500 or more. I does not pay to be an early adopter.

    Bergencountycamera.com in Westwood,NJ

    Last time I was in there, they had one in stock. They also have "in stock" status listed on their website.

    Wonderful "high end" dealer that has seen a good share of my paychecks. You are best to do everything by phone... easier and faster. Not really geared towards online business mostly the locals and walk-ins (many with really deep pockets). Wonderful service but don't expect rock bottom BH like prices. I do most of my business with either Rob P. or Paul B. If the deal works out.. tell them "Randy" expects a commission.. j/k LOL.

    Unique (www.uniquephoto.com) in NJ are also good. I pre-ordered my D3, so I've had it for about three months and I don't regret buying it so early. It is a remarkable and versatile camera.

    Best,
    Helen

    I am not too worried at this point. I just wanted to make sure that I could get one within a reasonable amount of time. I just got a gig doing weddings during the summers for as many summers as I would like. I do not have a backup to my D200 and figured the logical choice would be to move up to the D3. Not only that but I also wanted to start my own business and thought of the D3 as an investment to start that business. Thank you for your help.
