I have been following all of the D7000 threads closely and I do not believe this question has been covered, if so please forgive me.
Those of you who have been buying photog gear and especially "hot" new gear for longer than I have, do you have any idea which may be faster, to pre-order (yes, I know I am very late in the pre-order game on this) from a major retailer like Amazon or Best Buy, or from my local camera shop? Who would you guess may actually have them faster? My local shop has 60 ordered from Nikon (the worker I talked to did not know when they will get them) and only 7 of those are claimed so far.
Believe me, I understand that this will be largely guesswork, I am just curious what your guesses may be.
