I work at Best Buy & pre-ordered the camera myself. I personally have the A7ii, and wanted to upgrade to the A7riii. I know that usually when you pre order items you get it that day of release. But for my camera I didn't and was told that when Best Buy gets the camera in stock they will fulfill my preorder. But that could take months :(. So I just decided to get the A7rii for now & upgrade to the A7riii later on next year. I just couldn't be cameraless for too long. If you are in the same position I would call theBridge and ask them what your preorder is looking like right now.
