Sorry in advance for the rant, but I'm thoroughly fed-up waiting for the Q, and the dealer says that Leica are not playing ball at all re supplies. If there's no sign of it in the next couple of days or - at the least - if Leica don't have the courtesy to communucate something rather than nothing, I'm going to get something else.

Just order one from Herrington, If I remember correctly she said they were getting 24.

Thanks, but I'm in Ireland.

 

Try Ffordes Photographics in Scotland. Steve Byford is a great Guy and it's closer to home. Mine took a week to arrive and I was first on the waiting list when I first enquired.

Update: It seems there's one on its way and it might be ready for pick-up next week. After all this, it had better be worth the wait!

It's well worth the wait!!  Leica organic quality photo's and a tool that doesn't get in the way (like a Sony with their interface).  On top of that it is extremely enjoyable to shoot!

For those who placed order from Herrington the past week, is there any other updates have you received from them? I just called them again to add battery as it was cheaper than BHphoto, and according to the person - it might have some pushed back dates to the 11 ..

Just got a shipping notification from Herrington Catalog! I ordered on 10/27 around 2pm, chose 2-day shipping and they shipped via fedex overnight (to be delivered tomorrow). Many thanks to those who introduced Herrington Catalog! I had emailed them and they confirmed that they are a Leica authorized dealer.

I prepaid for mine from Hunt's Photo and Video in up in Melrose (Boston) on Friday and they just called to let me know they got one in and they are shipping it out today. They are slowly trickling in, but there are not many people on their list so if you are willing to prepay, you can move to the top.  I had pre-orders at B&H and Leica Miami but it seems everyone else does too and I spoke with several people who waited months from those sources.  My Q should arrive on Wed.  I learned about Hunt's at the Photo Expo in NYC where they always have a booth.   They are a reputable store that has been in business for some time.  My salesperson was Jeremy and he did a great job so worth checking out if you're looking for some alternatives.  Hopefully, the shipments will start to pick up and the demand will ease.

Great! I ordered mine on 10/26, still waiting on shipping information. Can you tell if it requires a signature?

Yes, they said it will require the signature due to the value of the item.

Had one on order from B&H since 6/23 and folks are getting them elsewhere in no time..., seems Leica should evaluate their distribution strategies. Anyway I'm out of the que as I canceled my order today.

I don't know about that. If everyone chooses to buy from the same place it's not Leicas responsibility to starve other distribution points to satisfy their one customer.

It's always BH and the largest (and most obvious dealers) where you have the longest wait.

 

When you want something, look for the smaller dealers. There's always someone who has one or two any given day.

I guess I agree but why are they selling to Herrington anyway who cannot be considered a "high end camera dealer" when they cannot supply their most important and consistent channels. Anyone have any idea of how many Q's they produce a month?

On the USA ebay as well. There is one listed from a "Leica Authorized Dealer" for $5600 which is a bit over the retail of $4250. I guess they can do that but I certainly would not buy from that dealer ever.....!
