Order the Nikon D850 today at Amazon, get it in two days


A friend of mine just ordered his Nikon D850 from Amazon and we were both surprised to find out that he will have his camera in 2 days (delivery estimate: Thursday, December 7th). I am not sure if this is a glitch in the system or Amazon just got a large D850 shipment that cleared all of their existing pre-orders.

If anyone is still looking for a D850, maybe it is worth trying to order one from Amazon - please post in the comments section the delivery date you got.

Update on the latest Nikon D850 shipments in the US


Check D850 availability: B&H | Adorama | Amazon | BuyDig | BestBuy | Cameta Camera | Focus Camera | eBay | WEX | Jessops
