I had this along with the grip on pre order from a well known retailer local to me. I was a bit confused as a friend had taken delivery of his camera from them last week and I had not heard a dicky bird. So I phoned them. Yes, they had the camera but were waiting for the grip. When will that be I asked. No idea, sorry was the reply. Can I have the camera today and you send the grip whenever I asked. No sorry they are not listed on our system as two orders, so we cannot let you have the camera. We can check with management if they will allow this and call you back. Before calling them, I has spoken to SRS. They were processing the weekend's orders and agreed to phone me within the hour to let me know if they had one I could buy. I got the call and yes they had one with my name on it that they could ship to me today for tomorrow and the grip would follow asap. Needless to say , I confirmed the order. I also saw on the SRS website that, as Pro dealer, they offer 2 years warrantee. At this time I had not heard from the well known dealer, so I rang them to cancel the order. It just goes to show how a small glitch in the way the order system works can lead to a failed sale. A short while later I got an Email saying that 'management' had agreed to release the camera. Sadly, just a wee bit too late. Anyway, the camera will be here tomorrow, in time for me to take it with me to Bath in a couple of weeks time. Hopefully the sun may be out. I'll let you know what I think of it shortly, but it does look promising.
