My wife was let go from her job yesterday, so I'm trying to cancel my preorder with Adorama. :(:( I checked my order status and I don't see a way to cancel online. I sent an email and because they are out I received an email to send another email Monday. I guess I'll try to give them a call Monday morning.

I guess I can make myself feel better by telling myself I can take additional time to make sure the camera really is as good as I hope and that if I don't get an early copy maybe I'm less likely to have problems. Finally, I guess I can take more time to see if prices come down and try to find a deal later.

Sigh...

Sorry to hear that. Yes, maybe you'll be able to get a better deal on one down the line. Looking at the gear in your signature, it would appear that you're in good shape regardless. :)

Serious bummer. You have to call their customer service department to cancel. You can usually get through quickly and they are nice about it. Adorama's shipping department is closed until Monday the 12th so if you call Monday morning you should be fine.

I hope all works out well for you.

Buy kit while available and sell extra lens! :D

I followed your orders, picked mine up at BB an hour ago. I'm one of the few making a larger step - Rebel to 7D. Now to learn how to use it.

Wow that is tough. But you will come out alright. Everyone I know that has been let go in the last 5 years has ended up doing something they love (albeit sometimes for less money) and the 7D will be less expensive and potential bugs will be fixed.
So, I predict you will do well in the end.

I don't want to be the bearer of bad news, but It looks like Best Buy all along never had intentions of fulfilling their Pre orders. I honestly spent over 6 HOURS this morning with everyone from Online Customer Service, to Online Sales, all the way up to Corporate, and NOT ONE OF THEM had the same story, regarding the release of the 7D. Then finally the woman from corporate stated that their website has to be in error and that they would look into it.

But without giving a long drawn out explanation of what happened to me this morning regarding this fiasco I'll surmise it.

Basically I was so friggin angry at how they basically lied to us, by saying that we would be guaranteed a delivery by the 15th (those of us who selected expedited shipping), because I called several times to verify these dates because I could have placed an order with another store, but only because they gave a DATE I went with them.

I then told them that since they couldn't tell me for sure I wanted my money back, but they initially couldn't/wouldn't do that because I had bought a BB gift card. So after exspressing my anger I told them that I WANTED MY MONEY.

So they called my local BB, and told them to refund me my money. At this time I was upset, but I was like I could just place a preorder with a local mom and pop shop, who said they expected their second shoipment by Friday.

After going to the closet BB, I then talked to the manger, who i know really well, as the BB is only 5minutes from my house, so i'm in there all the time, just window shopping. And after telling him what happened he was like let me just look at something before we refund this. She then said wait blah blah has 2, so does this one, and so does that one. I flipped, what you mean to tell me that online never stated that i could not only pick it up, but the customer service reps, who i had spoken with at 7am this morning, who I had specifically search my area to check inventory, never told me they had any, no more than 5miles from my house.

I was so excited, my anger was overwhelmed by my joy, and excitement. We each called a BB location out of the 3 and i happened to be the first one ( on my cell phone) who got ahold of someone, who after a couple minutes on hold found one in the store, placed it on hold for me.

Because I'm a regular customer they allowed me to use an old 12% off Rewardzone coupon, and they not only placed the order at the original store I weas at, they offered to send someone to pick it up for me. But needless to say 5miles isn't that bad of a drive, so I went and took delivery of the 7D myself.

So ultimately I got my kit lens for free, and like 5% off which here in illinois (Cook County) is like 1/2 off the taxes, so it worked out for the better.

Basically I wanted to let those who are relying on BB's delivery dates DON"T, attempt to find a local BB that might have them in stock, as many of us have done. They apparently each got no more than 2, some stores only got 1, and many didn't get any.

Hope this helps, and I pray that you guys are blessed with success as I have been.

My pre-order is with Tigerdirect (yes, I know). I'm in absolutely no hurry for a 7D body but the 15% Bing! cashback (at the time) was too enticing to pass up.

Anyway, according to the agent who handled my Tigerdirect chat session a few minutes ago, they're expecting a shipment of 7Ds on October 31 so mine should ship the first week of November.

I'm curious what other stories Tigerdirect 7D waiters have been told. Does the story I got match anyone elses experience?

Just got mine from BB using the 10% USPS coupon.
All the stores near me (North Chicago) were showing a bunch of stock (kit version) when they checked on their computers.

Just read half the manual, now time to shoot!

anyone here anything about shipments from bestbuy yet?

I just checked at a little after 1:00am (midnight in Minnesota) because it was now 10/11, the 'release date'. My preorder placed on 9/2 which I confirmed again on the phone Friday, has finally changed status. It's now backordered.

Hang in there. I suspect we'll hear something this week. In the meantime don't miss any good opportunities with what you have now.

Sadly I have two brand new lenses and a used one on its way that will be waiting for the 7D to be put to good use. :confused:

Quick, everybody cancel their adorama pre-orders so I can move up the line!
