    People who pre-ordered very early have received theirs.

    I placed an order 1-2 weeks ago and was quoted a 6-8 week wait (from Ted's).

    So, they're technically available. But not really.

    Been advised by Sony store that backorders are shipping first week of May; so I should have mine soon ;) . Got my Voigtlander VMII adaptor for my m-mount lenses yesterday so I'm all ready to go.

    I got my a73 last Thursday.. was about 4 weeks all up and apparently Sony are sending out a lot more in each weekly delivery (store I got it from said they got 1 or 2 each week and got 8 in the last shipment).

    Looks good, was shooting a wedding in Brisbane over the weekend so havent had a good play yet!

    Nice :) I've got a friend's wedding at the end of june, and I've sold my A7RII, so I'm quite keen to get it sooner than later to get familiar with some of the changes. Here's hoping.

    Called up Georges, Digidirect, and camera house at broadway and none of them had any stock. Camera house said 3 weeks they have more coming in, and georges said they have like 40 pre-orders to fill. Look like it might be a while.

    I wonder if the 5D4 was this hard to get your hands on at release.

    Digidirect gave me the shortest estimated time frame of 3-4 weeks, but I ended up going with Georges anyway as I've bought a few things with them and they've always been good to me with after sales service.

    I pre-ordered mine from JB. The Elizabeth St store said they were getting around 3 approximately every 10 days. Their order book is around 5 so probably looking at 3 weeks.

    Not sure if you know, but Sony Australia prioritizes online orders over anything else. You want the camera as soon as possible? Order it from Sony.com.au.

    Did not know that, but I wasn't in a rush and the price difference was significant.

    So far so good, loves the 35/1.7 CV I have, which is in an LTM-M adapter, which is then in an M-E adapter! Full metering, e-z p-z.
