    At the end of the day, most of us do not know why the camera was delayed a week, but I can't remember a time when two cameras shipped so closely to each other or when B&H's initial shipping date was changed.

    The S5 isn't a S1H2 or something as big as the a7SIII but they should still have some breathing room.

    Even if you're a legit competitor and don't have a relationship with your competition, I imagine no one wants to be overshadowed.

    Or it could be something simple such as a factory logistics miscommunication and a delayed overseas shipment in which the units may not take an entire week to get here, but corporate decided, "Let's give it a week just to be safe".

    EDIT: Also just saw that the free 45mm won't ship until mid-November.

    Yes, the S5 has shipped in many parts of the world. The problem with late shipments seems to be a U.S. problem. We need a new conspiracy theory. I shoot with the S1H and have a S5 on order; it looks like a nice companion camera and I was counting on shooting with the both of them in a couple of days.

    Panasonic hates money?

    BTW, Robert's Cameras just sent me an email saying that Panasonic told them it would be ready to ship on the 30th.

    It says "Preorder" on the main page which usually means they are getting them and fulfilling orders.

    When it actually says "Back-Ordered" there might be a much longer delay.

    Looks like no joy - still says back-ordered; no response from B&H. Not sure if this is a Panasonic issue, or a B&H one, but I'm not happy.....
