    Just got 2nd email that they are working on my order AGAIN. So, maybe this time they will actually ship it?? Doesn't look like I get home till the 2nd. So, I guess it really didn't matter much. Just to know it's that at my house though.

    In Europe there seems to be a backorder of 8000 battery compartments alone. Given that only every third owner buys the battery add on this might mean a 25000 piece backorder on the camera.

    I can say that after two and a half weeks it was exactly the right decision to buy this camera at the time I bought it. It does everything my D3 and D600 did but combined in one body. Very good!

    Your 11 hours from my house driving. If you can figure out where I live and beat the UPS truck there. ????

    While your waiting on the truck. You should make it look like your living there. The trees need new mulching. Garden beds need weeding for the winter. Shrubs still need fall pruning. The side property of about an acre needs the brush cut down again (watch out for bees, we have 4 hives over there). If you miss the truck. And get all that done. I can come up with some more. :aiwebs_016::345:

    Oh, no. I would definitely declare the camera stolen. :aufsmaul::aufsmaul: And then provide proof I was not even in the state! :barbershop_quartet_member: So, UPS would be on the hook since they let a non-resident sign for the package and take it. :barbershop_quartet_member:

    If your flying Ryan you might want to re-think that. I think they have a D850 carriage surcharge of $3,500!! :aiwebs_016::aiwebs_016:

    No l would not. I would never need a camera like that. I also realize that that camera does not help me achieve what l want. I do not have GAS nor do l think a body like that is worth it. I would rather upgrade my current gear with better glass and filters, etc.
