Yeah, I have the number and everything. You see, I never even SAW the "shipping soon" notice. It just went from me getting an email saying they still didn't have it to me getting the "we've shipped it!" email within 12 hours...

sigh. You can't believe how many times I checked my status on Amazon. Still no go...:mad:

Sucks, I just talked to newegg about my pre-order. All week their site has said arrival date 10/1/09 and now they said they have NO ETA.

Time to find someone else that has it in stock.

They had a 7D in stock this afternoon. I bought one about 2pm LA time. They told me that it would ship tomorrow. They better not have lied to me as they charged my cc. Don't know why you haven't gotten yours yet... odd...

Sure are a lot of nervous people here waitin' for Big Brown.

I can't believe how fast B&H shipped my order -- I placed the order late Monday evening and this morning (Thursday) it was shipped out. Dang the weekend -- it is adding two days to my wait -- where's my Prozac?

I bought a body from Newegg at about 2pm EST. It then went out of stock right after. I think what happened was that they re-listed the 7D body under a new item number and the pre-orders (I didn't have one. Just checked the site and struck gold) got missed. When I had checked the site previously around 10am EST, there wasn't even a listing for a 7D body-only, just the kit. I was shocked I got it and it's now being overnighted to my house! I then canceled my order with Lame-azon. Really excited to try out the video features of the 7D this weekend!

i called them too! errrr :mad: they only have around 30 pre-orders so i don't know what the deal is. they claim to have ordered 150 units.

they did agree to upgrade my shipping for free to "2nd day there" whatever that means.

30? that sounds awful low - I just checked the original thread on slickdeals that I saw on Sept 1st, it has 180 posts and over 28,000 views. Seems like that would have resulted in more than 30 orders.

Same deal here. Ordered Monday night from B&H, and it was shipped out today. Will be here in California early next week.

Newegg sure ships fast, but for us southern Californians, 9.75% of $1,699 is over $165!!!

Wow, just wow. I definitely missed the boat on this with my Circuit City pre-order. Just placed an order with Calumet, we'll see which one comes first!

Yes, got the tracking number earlier this afternoon....

I just got back home to check email and I also have a tracking number for my grip from adorama. It won't be here till Monday so I'll have to suffer through the weekend with my little finger dangling off the bottom of the camera.

OK, maybe i should have said anxious. There is probably someone on POTN with anxious as their handle.

Sales tax here is 8.25% -- slightly over $140. My local camera store called about a week ago and said that they had my 7D if I still wanted it. I try to buy most of my stuff there because they are good guys that treat their customers well and I sometime get discounts, but I told them to call the next person on the waiting list. I will get my accessories from them.

Thing is -- you might not get enough notice to cancel an order before it ships and then you will have more than one 7D. :p The first notice that I had from B&H was after UPS already had it on its way.
