    Ok...so there are 25 people with a vested interest in this camera yet this thread has well over 12,000 views? (!) Are we all so obsessive, or is it compulsive?

    Let's move it along!

    This is like what I hear people tell of their military experience: "hurry up and wait".
    Tim Gray in PA has it. A week ago he said "I'll try to get this guy out of the door in the next week or so." We're almost at the 'or so' part so we're still good for a couple of days I think.

    And yeah, the 'hurry up and wait thing' in the military was definitely true. In the military everyone did hurry, out of fear. Here in the civilian world with our traveling camera, some people hurry and some don't but we all wait nonetheless.

    Wow! Well, that averages out to 480 hits per person! Perhaps we are obsessive, compulsive, desperate. At the same time, we know we're not the only ones looking at this thread. Outsider/spectators are attracted to car crashes, train wrecks and the like.

    Definitely on the 'or so' part. Hopefully I'll get a chance this weekend to snap my pic.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    After I've been waiting for a year and a half, a few more weeks means proportionally very little.

    but hurry up please

    Yeah. As fun as it is, it can be sort of aggravating...

    YAY!!!! It's FINALLY here!!!!
    (dramatic pause)
    What do you mean "hurry up and ship it"? I want to ponder it, savor it, enjoy it... Do you know how long I've waited for this?
    You're still waiting? Oh, then I guess you do know!
