How long does it take for B+H to deliver or Adoroma

Hi, guys

Im just wondering how long does it take to get a Camera from B+H or Adoroma? I was wondering because here soon i can go to the camera place and still wait two weeks to get the camera if they order it or is B+H or Adoroma faster since they have it in stock. Im just curious

My recent B&H Black Friday experience was great.

Shipped UPS Monday from B&H in NYC, delivered to my door Thursday midday in Cape Town: 7800 miles (12,500 km) in 3 days (customs clearance included)!

I Live in Melbourne Australia - the only holdups I have had with about 2 dozen B&H orders are religious holidays and out of stock. I have had every delivery within the time period specified. It is faster for me to mail order B&H in NY than it is to mail order an item 30k up the roads (and up the road requires a couple of phone calls for anything to happen) I get my orders from B&H with 5 -6 working days if not sooner and that's at their cheapest rate.

I ordered k3 the silver version since 2 weeks and didn't receive it until now.B&H stuff send me message that the camera is missed in transit and I have to wait 30 days to receive it. so is it a bad or good luck.

I'm a good bit closer to NYC than AZ is, Neither has ever taken the full week to get here. I do suggest you order early in the week so that it is fully in transit for the weekend.

I think it depends a bit on where you live.
I've had great luck with B&H
I'm in New England and I've always chosen basic free shipping and get my gear in a couple days. My K3 actually showed up the next day.
