Scarlet #314 Arrived today! Started a different thread but should have posted it here.
So my SO number is well past 58000. Does that mean that there are 58,000 people in front of me in line, or is there another reason for the large number. I ordered on Dec. 29.
When I look at the list, there are several other orders placed after mine that are beneath 10,000.
It only takes an 8 person team 13 minutes to assemble a Scarlet. Red employs over 400 people and has a large manufacturing plant.
In my opinion they "could" easily make 500 cameras a day right now but... the problem is that there are thousands of tiny parts that make up a Red camera. 10% (i.e. hundreds) of those parts come from Japan. If one single part is missing, they can't send out the camera.
"My guess", is that there are hundreds of scarlets that are 95% built just waiting for a small handful of parts to arrive. This is why they "plan" to be out of trouble in Feb.
Just my 2 cents...

anyone getting emails yet, regarding the touch or the sidehandle going out? I read the post recently from Jarred, and I'm just checking to see if those of us waiting are getting anything this week.
