I remember earlier when a kit was available from Willoughby, it was to be released on Nov. 15th. Technically Amazon is saying that the kit will be released by Willoughby on Nov. 15th, but no mention to when Amazon.com will be releasing the camera, as the body only which has no third party seller still mentions that this item will be sold by Amazon when available. May lead to why the kit has only the 15th release date?
Thoughts? Perhaps Amazon hasn't given their own release date yet?
Hopefully this will temporarily set minds at ease haha.
Also noteworthy: Every single Nikon Camera has a savings that has to be applied after camera is in cart. Could amazon be using this delay in release to quickly move other Nikon units for over anxious buyers? Hang tight people, I feel a real release date is soon on the horizon.
Canon and other camera makers not having a huge release right now are not receiving this treatment. I'm on to you Amazon... Or need to get back to my work haha.
