A couple of SAR readers (Thanks!) sent me a new message sent by Sonystore USA to the customers who preordered the NEX-7. It basically confirms what we heard from other sources. The NEX-7 will be shipped in very small quantities to early pre orders and than a long time will pass until it will back in Stock (March?).
Here is the official message:
Thank you for your recent Sony purchase.
We would like to inform you we are experiencing a delay with your Sony order. The following item NEX7/B has been rescheduled to ship on 11/11/2011.
Tracking information will be sent via email once your order ships. This number will also be available within the order history in your Sony Account. If you are unable to continue waiting we encourage you to visit our website or call 1-866-337-7669 to work with a Sony sales representative to find an alternative product that will meet your needs.
We appreciate your understanding and thank you for choosing Sony!

I bet those of you that will be lucky to get the NEX-7 can resell the camera on eBay for double the price :) There are still some stores accepting pre order like Adorama or Amazon Deutschland but I doubt they will ship those within the next 2-3 months.
P.S.: There are still some A77 body only cameras in Stock at Amazon US (Click here to get it!).
