Thanks guys! I can't wait. I was a little bummed out when I read this in their confirmation email to me:

"If you chose to ship your package to an address other than the one listed with your credit card company your order will be delayed up to 3 business days above and beyond our normal processing time."

I had to have it shipped to my work because their website says that all shipments require an adult signature, and my wife and I both work full-time. I guess it's going to get slowed down. :sad:
That's odd I have ordered from them twice and that never happened to me. Just normal order processing time. The last item I ordered was less than 2 months ago.

Yeah, I don't know if it's new or not. The last order I placed with them was from Buydig.com in 2004. I had that camera shipped to my office as well, and I can remember that I got it fast (only aroundtwo days). I guess I'll find out soon enough. I'm just anxious to get it.

Actually as I began to think about it more, the Pentax K100D seems nicer and nicer.

http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/K100D/K100DA.HTM

Ikeep thinking of itas a nicely designed (compact)dSLR with a large 6 MPCCD and image stabilization + ISO 3200 for use in more extreme situations. :droll: The LCD and TTL viewfinder seems to bevery qualitative too.

The camera seems to have a solid stainless steel chassis beneath the outer covering.(Isaw it elsewhere)

I got it!!! It just came in a few minutes ago. I ordered it too late on Friday for it to ship that day, so it just went out their door yesterday. Overnight for free!

Man, this thing is beautiful. Now I want to go home and play with it. This is going to be the longest afternoon in history.

Yeah, that free Fed-Ex Ground shipping works out well for those of us in the northeast! I suppose if you're on the west coast, it would take a lot longer.

I have a ton of vacation time available so believe me, I thought about leaving early! Be sure to post those field hockey shots. I showed your Maine shots to my wife. She was very impressed.
