It appears that Amazon intentionally delays shipping by a week if using the Super Saver shipping, calling it processing time. They do this to entice you to pay $79 a year for their "Prime Club" membership which includes faster processing time and free or reduced shipping charges.
Which, y'know, seems fair enough. They wouldn't have to offer free shipping at all.

I bought from B&H, though, because living in Boston means I almost always get things the day after they ship from New Jersey even if I take the cheapest shipping. I just paid over a thousand dollars for the thing, I might as well pay a few more dollars for instant gratification.

This is crazy. I placed my amazon order on may 20th and got the same July 20-24 estimate. I already sold my 20d. This way too long to go clickless .

Don't stress over the date Amazon gives when you choose free shipping. That's a worst case scenario, it's often faster than that.

Yeah, that doesn't look like an Amazon email, it looks like from one of the other dealers.


When I check my Amazon order here is what it says:
Items not yet shipped:
Shipping estimate: July 13, 2009 1 of: Pentax K-7 14.6 MP Digital SLR with Shake Reduction and 720p HD Video (Body Only)
Sold by: Amazon.com, LLC
It is amazon, I preordered it since early June

Well I cancelled my Amazon order and ordered from J&R since they ship for free with UPS ground that is 1 day to me and 5% Bing cashback.
