Interesting. I ordered on the 23rd and I already have a tracking number. This will be my 3rd 7D body. Can't believe it.
The reason mine is delayed is because they had to call to confirm before processing so I lost a day's time.

Seems that is their normal procedure. They told me any order over $500 rates a phone call. What if you placed the order and went on a trip? I guess no camera!

I finally got a ups tracking number, they said 24-48 hours processing time and they took just about 50 hours until they shipped. I cant wait! Glad to know for sure its on its way now, that "processing" BS was driving me nuts!

Now to send the 5d to sony to fix the first-shot-blackout and a sticky button.

My SOP is to give a fake phone number (generally area code-000-0000) because too many companies have been abusive with thier marketing practices. This time I actually gave a valid number but they didnt call.

I got the confirmation email this AM on the 7d kit I ordered from Walmart on their gonga deal, I called to check status of my order andI got an automated message that it isscheduled to be delivered to me byWednesday September 6th. Looks like they actually had stock because my credit card has now been charged also. :-)

Just went to the Walmart website to check on my order and the order tracking andthe tracking number link isnow shown for my shipment and yes it is UPS.

It still says processing near the top but it also says shipped near the bottom of the information pagealong with the tracking information number and link. I went to the UPS site but they have not updated yet so I could not get the projected delivery date yet.

The most important thing is that it hasbeen shipped now. :-)

Received another email from Walmart with the tracking information late Friday night. The camera kit was shipped from Ontario, California on the 25th and the tracking information said the following:

"Your package is in the UPS system and is on time with a scheduled delivery date of 08/29/2006. "

That is one day earlier than the original estimate they had given when I ordered. I had juststuck with the standard basic shipping option and it is still only going to be 4 days total including the weekend.

I hope everyone else that ordered has heard some good news by now.

Meanstreak, why did they delay shipping your order?

Well, I don't know if this is a problem with all Maxxum 7Ds, but the one I ordered has some white balance problems...does/did anyone have that problem?



I made a new topic on this.
