Like many others who pre-ordered the Nikon D800 from, here comes the bad news. A concisely worded email from yesterday stated the following:

“Nikon D800 36.3 MP CMOS FX-Format Digital SLR Camera (Body Only)”
Estimated arrival date: January 04, 2013 – January 08, 2013

On the other hand, Nikon Rumors got a shipping date of March 22, 2012 for Nikon D800 and April 12, 2012 for Nikon D800E.

[Update]: After switching the shipping method on the Amazon pre-order to one day shipping, the estimate delivery date chanted to March 21, 2012. However someone who pre-ordered the D800E also got an estimated shipping date of the same, which is not true according to Nikon’s official statements on the availability. Most likely Amazon has some issues with their pre-order system and this is not a true indication of Nikon D800’s popularity. It is better to stay put in the queue than go to the end of the queue at other retailers.
