Nikon D800 UK Availability

If, like me, you are interested in the recently announced Nikon D800 camera – with its whopping 36MP sensor – I thought I would summarise what I have been able to discover about its availability in the UK.

I contacted the following suppliers as, to my mind at least, they are the ones most likely to have stock and be able to supply a shiny, new D800. Here is what they said – todayhot off the press.

Robert White

None in stock. No information from Nikon. Please call back every week or two for updates. They have shipped around 20 units to date.


wex Photographic

None in stock. No information from Nikon. Please call back every couple of weeks.


Park Cameras

None in stock. No information from Nikon. It could be several weeks.


Grays of Westminster

None in stock. They have a backlog that will likely take 2-3 months to clear. They have shipped around 120 units to date.

  1. Wow, so they aren’t exactly ‘readily’ available then 🙁 You’ll just have to wait a bit longer then…
    Thanks for doing the research that most of us are too lazy to do 😉

  2. I ordered from Camera World and they’re saying the same thing. They even told me to call Nikon directly as they’re not telling them anything. So I emailed Nikon and they said to check with my retailer… Nikon UK seem to be pretty poor compared to elsewhere in the world.

  3. I have had one on order from WEX since early March. I have phoned them and most of the majors in the UK and got the same run around. I understand that they are unable to predict what’s coming if Nikon won’t tell them but they CAN and should tell us what has been delivered so far and how big the waiting list is and, ideally, where you are on the list. There is no reason why they can’t do that but none of them will. I am going to have to jump ship and buy a Canon if I don’t get any info soon!!
    I don’t believe Nikon are making any of these cameras and they are carefully shuffling around the stock they had before production stopped!! Prove me wrong Nikon!!!
