    Amazon now saying release date is October 19th, while Adorama and B&H now saying Sept. 30th. I pre-ordered 2 weeks ago from B&H and was told that they'd be receiving enough cameras for me to get mine in the first batch, but no joy - my order also saying it won't be shipped until the 30th.

    This seems quite odd considering that early reviewers have had copies in their hands for nearly 2 months now (and those copies looked to be pretty finalized). Perhaps Panasonic is jamming in new firmware ala Canon, but considering Panny just announced a small firmware upgrade yesterday (for uploading files to the cloud) that seems unlikely....

    ...As does over-whelming demand.

    So not sure what is happening, other then I'm not terribly happy right now.
    It really doesn't make any sense... I am pissed as well... I was hoping to get and test before a month of shooting in October. Not happening now...

    Maybe there's a secret cabal at Panasonic wanting us to buy the R6?

    One thing's for sure - if they delay again, that's exactly what I'll be doing. I've already booked jobs with the expectation of having the S5.

    B&H will be closed for like the first 10 days in October so hopefully they ship it right in that small window around the 30th/1st before they close on the 2nd early in the afternoon for the extended time.

    A while back, I wanted to buy the GH2, but delays forced me to opt for different camera. So, this feels a bit common for Panasonic now.

    Ironically, I was in a similar situation with the R5. A Jewish holiday fell on the day the R5 was officially released but they shipped it the night before so I had it on release day (when they were closed).

    But I was practically #1 on the list, so your hopes might depend on where you are in that first batch.

    No one is hoping that Panasonic had decided to activate those 355 phase-detect auto focus points?

    I imagine it was more of Sony asking to push it back a week and not ship the camera 2 days before they ships theirs.
