Nikon D800 now in stock on Amazon Germany

Pin It

I am surprised, but I guess they did not have many pre-orders: the Nikon D800 is currently in stock on Amazon.de.

Update: today Adorama and B&H started shipping Nikon D800 cameras to non-NPS pre-orders in the US.

  • price high

    The price of d800 is too high! I’m happy if they don’t sell….do not buy it! Nikon and Canon with their latest full frame want to squeeze as a lemon the photographer!!

    • Steph

      The D800 too expensive?!? Canon 5D MKiii is expensive….not the D800.

    • Rob

      The D800 is about 30% cheaper in the US than the D700 was, relative to the value of the Yen. You won’t ever see a full frame Nikon or Canon introduced at a cheaper price. It appears full frame is just out of your budget.

      I agree with you that the price is high. But is it worth it? Absolutely. This is a high end camera that no one else can match, not even Canon. And the fact that it out-performs the $8,000 D3x in nearly every possibly way, is a testament that at $3,000, it is an incredible bargain. Unfortunately, the folks in Germany have to spend more than those in the US, but that is like comparing apples with oranges (i.e. different countries, different monetary systems, different tax structures, different overhead, and different legal requirements, etc.) If the product does not sell that well in Germany, then Nikon will simply divert that production to US customers.

        German folks often have to pay more than there European neighbours. Of course there are countries in Europe where some products have incredibly high taxes but there the state grabs the money – not the manufacturer.
        In Germany the manufacturers and the dealers take a bigger chunk with their prices – and this isn’t a phenomenon associated with Japanese or foreign manufacturers in general: Geman manufacturers are happily doing this, too.

        A well-known example:
        European car makers – including German ones like Volkswagen – are selling their models in other “wealthy” European (Skandinavia, France…) for as much as 30% less. With a similar but not identical feature list – to make sure the cars appear different.
        People buying new cars in Germany and shun reimports because “they know their car dealer” or “believe, they won’t get covered by warranty” are losing much money. Do the math: 30% on a 25.000+ Euro car…
        Even with “house rebates” local dealers usually don’t come close to the reimport price and they know it. Of course the car dealers don’t keep all this money to themselves – for the most part it goes straight into the accounts of the manufacturer. Hence the record wins and big wage bonuses car makers like BMW and Porsche paid this year…
        There’s often no reason to not reimport your next car: In fact there are companies doing all the paperwork for you – and of course you get the same European warranty – you can drive to your local car dealer (of the brand) and get your car serviced normally there.

        There are other products that are even worse like drugs (medicines) where the difference in price if even more drastic but as long as the manufacturers and the dealers (pharmacies) work together and can control the legislative to not change laws regarding the sales (reimport) of drugs they continue to thrive – especially as the German populace gets older and older and needs more drugs.

        Why is that? There are several reasons for this:
        German folks often have to pay more than their European neighbours. Of course there are countries in Europe where some products have incredibly high taxes but there the state grabs the money – not the manufacturer.

        Why is that? There are several reasons for this:
        - German people are extremely brand loyal. The catch: It must be a good, known brand associated with quality. That’s why Canon usually(!) sells comparable models for significantly less money than Nikon does. The 5DM2 was several hundred Euros cheaper than the D700 in the last two years. Same with the 60D, even though the list price was only slightly lower than that of the D7000. That is what you get if you are perceived as a maker of cheap printers…
        - German people – especially the older folks – are incredibly conservative customers: “I don’t buy from the internet! How do I even turn on the fucking computer in the first place?”. Older Germans go to “their dealer” and believing they are getting a first class treatment. In fact they don’t notice that the pimply sales person let them wait for half an hour and then more or less tells them “Get this now or get lost!”.
        - German people – especially the older folks – are incredibly value-oriented (there are common sayings like “Buy cheap – buy twice!”). Hence the success of expensive traditional local brands like Mercedes as German folks tend to perceive a higher price as a *proof* for better quality. Younger German folks are already exhibiting this behaviour with certain brands, too (Apple for example).
        - German people – again especially the older folks – are incredibly inexperienced regarding brands. Old German brands associated with quality like AEG, Dual, Grundig, Telefunken etc. are NOT manufacturers anymore. They are just brands that are getting sold (or leased) to other companies trying to sell cheap Chinese stuff on the German market. You can demand a 20% higher price with one of the above brands slapped onto your cheap electronic gadget!
        - German people are in general NOT richer than other European people but are saving money like crazy. They are downright hoarding it on their accounts (which is why German governments are very creative with taxes) and tend to pay without a payment plan (=in one large sum). Germans are often highly priorizing their spendings: The food must be dirt cheap but all the money is blown out of the window for an extra feature in the next Mercedes, Audi or Volkswagen.

        German people also don’t like debts for smaller expenditures (everything less than a house), German people don’t like and don’t have credit cards but pay (electronic) cash and finally German in general people don’t haggle. Of course there are exceptions and many younger German folks are now taking advantage of globalization but many stones are still unturned here.

        That’s German spending culture 101 for you.

        That’s why YOU as manufacturer – especially with well-known brands that cater to older, mature audiences – are well-advised to sell your products for higher prices in Germany.
        You will make more money this way, even if you sell less — as many Germans won’t even mind paying more. Most people minding high prices are “internet folks (15-45 yrs.) and most of them are talkative dreamers but not customers anyway.

        So, please, do yourself a favor: Increase your prices in Germany so you can lower them wherever you need!

        • Andrew

          On the whole, your commentary on the German people was quite positive. In the US and elsewhere, Germans are perceived as hard working and quality minded. So it is no surprise that what they make for others (i.e. quality goods) is what they themselves consume.

          As far as cheap products sold as quality products are concerned, you can fool the people once, but not twice. If a brand loses its high standards, the word will eventually get around. If you want to take a camera to the North Pole, you better take a Nikon. If you take a Canon, then as the saying goes – “good luck to you!” So Nikon’s reputation for quality is well earned. I am not saying that Canon does not make quality products. What I am saying is that products like the Nikon D4 camera and the Mercedes Benz S-Class automobile are built like a tank. People that are quality oriented also like quality products. My favorite cars are Mercedes, and even after driving it for over 10 years, the structural integrity is impeccable. I think generally things are more expensive in Germany because wages are higher and as they say, quality costs. But also, the pricing of a product has two components – one is a return on research and development costs, and two is to generate a profit from the manufacturing cost (labor and materials). It is possible that the luxury automobile manufacturers cannot afford to sell their cars more cheaply in Germany because of the need to cover the cost of research and development – so they pass those costs to the Germans. But if they pass those same costs to some foreign markets, they will not be able to create a sizable business in those markets. No doubt you will always find a company that will try to exploit the higher price at home by re-importing a product and thus avoiding the normal cost structures of local merchants. This is an age old practice, just as there are black market goods! But anyway, I find your article quite informative. Thanks.

    • http://www.dx-fx.de DX-FX.de

      The text is irritating. The D800 was available and I ordered one. This morning it changed to “will be available on April 3rd (or something)” and now it is not available at all.

      • http://www.lebenslustigercom Lebenslustiger

        I had one on pre-oder from amazon.de and ended up canceling as I got my d800 on the 23rd from media-marktk (brick and mortar retail) – They only had one though :) Saturn carries it as well, but by now they might be sold out.
        It’s a terrific camera and the DXO reviews don’t hurt a lot as well :)

    I first saw the message on NR at work in the morning – thanks (again) NR!

    I m happy and tomorrow i will be haaaaaapppppyyyyyyyyyy

  • Michael

    I called a local dealer in Vancouver and they don’t want to take my order today because they have no idea when Nikon will fulfill the order. Another dealer requires $800 deposit for preorder but no estimated delivery time. D800 is so popular but how come it still take deposit for unknown shipment. So I didn’t make my order today.

    • hq

      B&H charged my credit card on Feb 7th, and today I even paid my credit card bill for the D800 despite not having received a shipment confirmation yet. I’m starting to become real angry!!

      • ken

        B&H don’t charge your CC unless it is actually a Debit Card, or you used Paypal or you are outside the USA, if not either of these then you should go speak to B&H about the charge to your card.

    • http://www.thetrueshot.com BSemple

      Requiring a deposit is so the retailers know you are serious about placing an order, otherwise just too many people are going to place orders in every physical & online store possible and cancel all but the first one to deliver. This overall doesn’t help with the accurate distribution of new stock.

      I ordered a D800E, from a North Vancouver store, and paid $400 deposit with no delivery date … but I am serious about wanting the camera for my work and with summer fast advancing the sooner the better. Although with rumours flowing of several months delay on the D800E I’m just hoping to get it before the Fall!!

  • http://www.tvbaiedesomme.com Nicolas Bryant

    I bought one 7 am from France after checking in here,(I hope you’ll get your commission:) but I guess I wasn’t the only one, and the number they had seems to have quickly disappeared… Delivery date should be around 4-5 april.

  • Smaug

    I’m sorry, this is a bit off-topic but has anyone seen the supposed D700 price cuts in Europe ? I’m still seeing the same prices, the lowest being 1882€ .

  • Stephan Daub

    The D800 I preordered on 07.02 at amazon.de arrived today (March, 30th)…

    Anybody preordered with jessops. Haven’t heard anything from them yet. Try to call customer service ….. no definite answer.

  • Pyrate

    I was told yesterday that BH wasn’t getting any more D800 cameras until May. Amazon now gives a delivery estimate of late April – May for orders placed now.

    • twoomy

      I ordered from Amazon US February 7 and my estimate is still Thursday April 12, 2012 – Monday April 30, 2012. Not too much of a difference in those estimates!

  • Alain2x

    Why is Nikon Rumors keeping on those free ads for stores that will not keep any promises ?

    “On stock” should mean in enough quantities, whatever the demand.

    Just a fishing advertising.

    Please, NR, stop posting these useless “rumors” about cameras “availability” : everyone knows this is never true, when we order, especially on the D800, where best stores have hundreds of pre-order that will not be satisfied before 2 or 3 months.

    • Dixie

      Well, how do you call the status of (for example) 10 D800s available?

      obviously you have not read any of the previous post/comments

  • D-waitingStill

    I was told from B&H that my order (6AM on Feb. 7) won’t arrive until mid to late May. My co-worker/ buddy ordered the Mark III a day after it was announced and has already received his. Way to go Nikon with the ability to fulfill orders! One wonders if they should have delayed the announcement until they had better stock availability.

    • CMan

      That’s when I ordered mine and still can’t get any type of response for delivery.
      How did the conversation go? Just curious because I can’t get anything out of them and they mentioned that I am “high on the list.” After thinking about that, not sure if high is good or bad, high number or high, when the list starts at 1 being at top lol.

      If Mid May is correct I’m going to pursue the local best buy.

      • Jetfire

        Right now BB has be pissed off. I went the on Sunday and prepaid with the promise of no later that March 30 delivery. They acted like they had some (this is when other people were walking into stores and buying them) and just waiting for them to be delivered thought their internal shipping system. BB online is sold out. I doubt any other stores have any on the self and non in my area will be caring the D800.

        If BB is truly out then were do they fall in the pecking order for future shipments. BB may have gotten so many D800 do to their dealer agreement with Nikon and the volume of Nikon sales. But will Nikon get all the pre-orders before shipping more to BB.

      May I ask when you ordered it? I am waiting for mine too, but haven’t received any update and Adorama won’t tell me where I am on the queue

  • Dominic

    Pre-ordered mine from Jessops ages ago. Not heard a dickie-bird. Should’ve done WEX as well, I guess, and, once the shipping date was set, cancelled whichever was the slower.

  • grrr

    With BH being closed from the 5th to the 15th for passover, im thinking im never ordering from them again. I wish I knew better and pre ordered from amazon. If I find out everyone else is getting their shipments and mine is sitting in a wear house for 10 days im gonna be pissed.

    ummm separation of church and Business.

    and before I get anti semite comments… im part jewish and I also flip out when I’m in a state that dosn’t sell beer on sunday!

      Same here. Still waiting. Sigh…..

    • Jeff

      I totally agee, and I am 100% Jewish. Who closes for 8 days on Passover. That’s ridiculous. It ain’t Yom Kippur! And I am still waiting for my D800 from Amazon. Ordered the 7th of Feb at 3:30 A.M. What’s up with them? Fail!

    • Anne

      No anti-semite comments and I’m not Jewish BUT B&H plasters their holiday schedule all over their website and other literature. They close for specified holidays every single year. The announcement of the D800 doesn’t suddenly change that. I’m waiting for my D800 from them, too, but not having a cow like most of the folks on this website.

  • Tim

    I just checked with B&H via online chat regarding my D800 order – placed 2/9 . The answer was that they have shipped their initial allotment, my order wasn’t early enough to fulfill in this lot, and they’ve been notified their next shipment from Nikon won’t be until May.

    • grr

      Tim, Did they say what the cut off date was for their initial allotment? I placed my order on 2/7 and they have not charged my card so I am assuming it hasn’t shipped.

  • Vijay

    Just picked up my D800 from Best Buy. :) (Costa Mesa, CA)

  • fem

    Nikon is sending us a pretty clear message about just how much B&H matters as a dealer. ie. about as much as diddly squat.

    Never mind people getting their D800 from Best Buy, or local dealers a week ago.

    There are non-NPS people who ordered from Adorama on 2/8 who already got their D800. Meanwhile, people who ordered on 2/6 from B&H are still getting promises (when pushed) they will get their camera in May, maybe, best case scenario maybe. B&H spokespeople going around forums are admitting now that B&H got two ‘small’ shipments so far. Pretty sad. (the lack of communication makes everything worse. How small is small? all sorts of other questions … Ignored)

    Conclusion:

    B&H (perception) = best dealer (?)
    B&H (reality) = worth diddly squat.

    B&H, what an exaggerated malfunction.

    • bricah

      Do the math. Best Buy has over 1,000 stores beside their on-line presence. Outside of Amazon, I don’t believe any single outlet retailer or small local chain (no matter how realitivly large they are) would receive 3 or 4,000 units initially- equal to 3 or 4 per BB Store. Also a disproportionanate amount of more serious photographers would shop and order from those retailers before BB. Hopes are these same retailers will receive a disproportionate amount of the 800E’s which won’t go to the BB’s or similar outlets.

      • grz

        In other words, next time one pre-orders anything Nikon, go with Adorama or Amazon. Much more reputable.

        Good call!

      • Joby

        I saw a post on a Thursday night (I think) about Best Buy. I went to the store near my neighborhood Friday about noon and asked about the D800. They said they never get that quality of camera in the store. He looked at the website and found none. He then went online and put in a stock number which brought up a store list of about 30 stores. On the list there were 4 at an Alpharetta store and none shown for the remainder of the stores. I bought it in the local store right then and there and picked it up in the Alpharetta store. On Friday, anywhere close to me only one store out of 30 had the D800. Best Buy did not get 3 – 4 per store and I bet they did not get 3 -4000 D800s total. I can say, if I want a Nikon product, I may as well check with my local Best Buy just in case I come up VERY lucky.

        • Adam

          I did the same thing but with a D4. Hell maybe that was me thurday… Good to hear that the info helped someone.

    • David

      I was at B&H’s store last Friday hoping to get a glimpse of the D800. They had not received a shipment yet at that time. The guy at the counter told me they had a back order of 6,000 units.

    • flash

      I can only agree. I ordered mine on 2/7, was told it should ship on the 22nd of March. Now, it looks like May. I will never order from B and H again.

      • Jan

        +1
        B&H will loose a lot of customers. I know i am one that will never spend one dime in that store again.

      • grr

        +1!

        never again.

      • Anne

        If you had gotten your camera but read about the rest of us who didn’t, would you still never shop there again? Someone just posted that they have a 6000 units on backorder. It’s also well documented that NPS orders were filled first. Since I’m betting more NPS members probably chose B&H as their preferred vendor vs. BB it’s no wonder that B&H’s initial shipment was depleted by all the NPS orders. They had no control over that.

        What if you find out the May estimate is conservative and you get it next week? Will you still boycott them?

        I’m no B&H homer but I shop there a lot and I have never had a problem with them, until now. I won’t let an unfortunate (but not life and death) set of circumstances erase years and years of professional, consistent, reliable service. This is not their MO; it’s Nikon’s.

        Just my opinion so don’t flame me.

    • Dan

      Well, if it wasn’t for B&H, I would have never got the $119 price match from Fry’s for my $169 32Mb Sandisk extreme CF card for the D800 (which incidentally is extremely picky when it comes to the CF cards you use. Use one recommended in the manual or you’re likely to be making another trip to the return counter). So quit trashing B&H. They are great!

      • Anne

        I agree! B&H is such a great store; I can’t believe how many people are trashing them over this.

        • Jan

          I can only speak for myself but, it is not the fact that i don’t get my cameras from B&H in a timely fashion, if i am down the list because i was to slow to order there is only one to blame.

          The problem i have with B&H is the lack of information and the rude answer i get when i call to inquire about the status.
          Be open and let us know how far down the list i am so i can make an honest desition about staying on the waiting list or start looking elsewhere.
          I don’t expect B&H to tell me when i get my camera if they don’t know but a store with their sheer size and reputation should offer better customer support.

          • Anne

            I actually think they have great customer service, ordinarily. I think this D800 thing has caught everyone off-guard.

            I can also understand your frustration. I don’t have that same frustration because I don’t call B&H to inquire about a camera I know is not in stock. Based on the number of people on this website I can only imagine how many people are calling them every day about this. And they actually sell OTHER things there! If you have ever shopped there (in person) you will know they are extremely efficient in getting the product to you once you have paid at the registered. I have ordered things from them online and it has been shipped within minutes. So I KNOW when they get a D800 with my name on it, it will be sent asap.

            Why would you need them to tell you where you are on the list in order to look elsewhere? If they told you that you were #2 or #40 or #800, what would that mean to you? If you find the camera somewhere else, buy it and then cancel your order. That’s what everyone is doing on this website.

            I can only speak for myself but the reason I’m not freaking out is because I won’t allow myself to get freaked out about a luxury item I didn’t really need in the first place. If I go chasing down stock all over my state and online I would probably get annoyed. I bought from B&H because I know if I have questions or need accessories or need to return or anything else, I will not have a problem. I would never buy from some nickel and dime store or, God forbid, some flipper on eBay. So waiting is what I will do.

            I hope you get your unit asap.

  • Bert

    This was my response from Jessops today. I ordered on 7th February.

    Dear xxxxx,

    Thank you for your e-mail.

    The current information we have is that we will be receiving another delivery next week, although Nikon are not confirming a quantity.

    It is impossible to say exactly when you will receive your order and I appreciate the frustration must be huge.

    When are talking to Nikon every day and we do continue to receive the lions share of available stock from them.

    Kind Regards

  • chris

    the comment to the first picture, i took with the d800: is this an HDR? it wasn´t, isn´t that great?

  • Kristen

    If I ordered my D800 at the beginning of March when do you thin I will see it? Just a guess?

  • Chino Viejo

    I woke up at 6AM on Feb 7 to place my preorder of a D800 at Amazon. Two hours later, a sales rep. from J&R whom I called the previous day advised me that I would be #2 in the line if I preordered from him. I quickly accepted his offer and canceled my order at Amazon. The camera was delivered on March 28.
    For the past two years, my wife could’nt believe that she has been married to a person who spent so much time reading rumors about a nonexisting camera. Now, she finally sees me holding the magnificent Nikon D800 in my hands. After she look at our bank account, reality begins to sink in. It is not a dream after all.

      Did you really get it in from J&R? I went in their last week just before canceling my order with B&H and they said if i made the “pre-order” purchase where they charge my card in the store, I’ll be #3 in line ahead of the Internet Preorders where they don’t charge the card.

      I called them yesterday and they told me they never received any stock yet d800 nor d4 !!!!!!

        I’m from NY; shopped there a few times. I always thought they were a little shady. If you get a camera from them by walking in the store that’s great for you but it really sucks for the people who ordered online. It’s pretty unethical for them to make an offer like that; I wouldn’t buy a pack of AAA batteries from a store like that.

  • Bollisee

    This must be a fake offer. Two Kameras should be sold out within 2 days. Obviously just a trick to get some attention for their website.

  • Carl

    Got my D800 today, bought through your Amazon-Link, thanks for posting :-) Battery is charging now…

  • komalkumar

    Hey in India the shop were i buy equipment is selling for $2700 !! but it is in back order :) And he has stock of 5d3 !!!

  • Jabs

    We are at another crossroads of camera performance and very few seem to be able to understand why they need to improve their technique and really seriously learn or relearn photography.

    The D800 is now a tool that shows whether you know how to really use a camera PLUS photograph or do Videos well. Often revolutionary cameras TEST your own abilities and many blame the camera but alas, they need to look at themselves first, an often difficult thing to honestly do.

    Now look at this spectacular image and tell me if YOU could do this or can any DSLR do this?

    Time for all of us to step up our game, as the new generation of Nikon cameras are spectacular and need a new learning curve for SURE!

    Enjoy.

  • http://Waiting... GP

    • grr

      • ShooterMcGavin

        +100!!! I’m actually fine with waiting for my D800 at this point (OK, a little frustrated having ordered it within the first few hours of its release), but it seems like B&H is unrelentingly teasing me with promo and survey emails!

  • Hightower

    Ordered mine on 7th Feb at Amazon Germany and got it on 30th March – many thanks to Nikon Rumors, good job, well done !

  • Justasc

    I ordered a D800 from B&H on Feb 6 (was in the first 100 orders), and will be receiving it April 4th via UPS. I received notification via email from B&H and my cc has been of course charged.

    • Anne

      Congrats!!!

        Anne,
        You are one of the few sensible posters on this thread. I said essentially the same thing a few days ago and was called a troll, a poser, a Mr. big shot and that my career must be over because I’m not having a nervous breakdown that my D800 hasn’t arrived yet. Meanwhile these very same people feel that they could run B&H, Adorama, and even Nikon because they run businesses where 100% of their customers are happy. Go figure….

        • Anne

          LOL, thanks. I haven’t been called a troll yet. That’s because most people don’t even respond to my posts. They’d much rather comiserate with the other folks on hear crying about their cameras.

          All these folks that are complaining aren’t turning away from Nikon but the vendors who are at the mercy of Nikon. Makes no sense to me. If I was that peeved I would just not buy the camera at all!

          • Michael Switzer

            Instant gratification must not be very gratifying.

  • grrr

    GRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!! SMASH!!!! ROARRRRRR!

  • Frank

    thanks a lot to [NR] – I ordered my D800 last Saturday on amazon.de and it just arrived ;-)
    So took just one working day…

    • http://nikonrumors.com/ [NR] admin

      I received several emails from readers in Germany that got their D800 just few days after ordering it from Amazon. I guess they did not have many pre-orders and plenty of cameras.

      • http://www.russbarnes.co.uk RussB

        Well here’s the opposite – I got charged for the item and they have lied about sending it………..

  • Skyler Dong

    anyone have an idea when Adorama will start shipping of D800 to non-NPS?

  • Robert

    Did order when I saw this add and it will arrive in Sweden tomorrow. Thanks Admin.

    My Swedish retailer lost his pre-order – I am not the loyal kind.

  • http://www.perhennng.com p

    Any news on the delivery of the d800? Bored of waiting and its even worse not knowing when it will arrive.

  • Kouettte

    just received mine today in London.
    Ordered on Friday evening on the German Amazon Website.
