Ok, so I ordered my D700 yesterday, August 2nd. Unfortunately, it is currently on backorder, so I thought I'd turn the anxiety of waiting into a little game that will hopefully be fun. Let's see who can guess the exact date that it will ship out. Each member is allowed only one guess. I will combine the number of guesses for a particular day that might get chosen multiple times and tally them up on the day my camera ships. If the individual or total guess(es) happen(s) to be the one or the largest sum for the ship date, then I will donate $25 to the Cafe. I understand that given the amount of people that post here, that it is almost guaranteed that a Cafe donation will occur...let's try and pretend that it isn't a sure shot:wink:. And finally, I will not provide any information as to which Nikon Authorized Dealer I ordered my camera from, so as not to give anyone any clues. Let the games begin! :biggrin: P.S. Please try and state the date clearly at the very top of your reply(in bold, if you know how).
