Well, I did it. B&H is no longer taking pre-orders for the D3 so I broke down and walked into our closest Cord Camera dealer. They are taking pre-orders and have not taken so many they don't feel they can fill them with the first lot. I pulled the trigger and bought a D3 for delivery in early/mid November. The dealer claims they have seen a target ship date from Nikon of Nov. 9th. We'll see. How many others have per-ordered a D3 or D300? Just curious. Just wanted to know if I'm the only overly eager Nikon nut out here. This might belong in the Chat forum, if so please feel free to move.
