I'm in Australia. Coming to USA for a few days in a month's time.
I want to get a Nikon D600 from B&H Photo, with the kit lens, to be shipped to my brother in VA, but I see that they're backordered now....just tooo much demand!
How long should it take, for them to replenish stocks? Surely it'll be available by a month's time, won't it?

If you've already ordered it, I'd think that if they don't have it in within a month it's a problem with Nikon, not B&H.

B and H has a 5D Mark 2 for $1700 right now with rebate.....

oops not a rebate, just a discount, but just for another week

Adorama seems to have it in stock; I took it through checkout and they said nothing about back-order. Scroll down a little for your kit. Adorama are reputable, so that's not a problem.

Woohoo, I got it!

It's all so very easy. Just a quick phone call, from Australia, a few numbers exchanged backwards and forwards, and voila! A new toy will be waiting for me, on my arrival in a month's time. D600 and the kit lens, with free case, card and battery thrown in on the deal too.
B & H tell me that it should ship in a day or two, to my brother's in VA, so, no delay.
And the Oz dollar's strong today too!

How am I going to manage to keep my excitement contained for a whole month?

I know....I'll just have to keep on shopping, by phone, and online!

(and thanks to those who took the time to reply to my question earlier. Much appreciated.)

See if you can download and read the user manual in the meantime -- that should take the edge off things, but give you an edge when you get your hands on it ... ;-)
