Dudes. Chill. We're all going to get our cameras the first week of May.

The 2nd of May is when they say they'll ship them. Unless you paid for expedited shipping back when you ordered it - it will come via UPS ground and take 7 to 10 business days after shipping to arrive. So we can reasonably expect the cameras between the 10th of May and the 13th of May - depending on where in the country you live.

A B&H Rep told me this morning that they have not received any stocks from Ricoh.
So it seems that, for B&H at least, May the 2nd shipping date is firm now.

The B&H customer rep. I asked was less forthcoming... only said early May. When I asked whether that meant the first week. No answer. When I asked whether my order would be backordered he didn't answer only saying orders would begin filling when they get their shipment. When I asked how many they were expecting in their shipment from Ricoh he said he had no way to find out. So I'm trying my best zen meditation to relax.

B&H, and Adorama, both re-open on May 1st - which is a Sunday. They won't receive any shipments that day is my guess. That is why B&H says May 2; they expect to ship the same day they receive the first order of the merchandise. After 13 years of waiting plus at least 6 months of additional delay - remember when it was going to be November of 2015 - I'm not going to hold my breath on a May 2nd ship date. The real question is has the ship even been loaded in Japan yet?

I can survive with a ~May 6 delivery date. As long as it's in my hands by Friday the 13th (wouldn't that be ironic?).

That will give me 2 weekends to get used to the camera before my trip to Alaska. I really don't want to be learning menus on the fly.
