There has been no change in the situation with Amazon’s shipping times for the Photographer’s Guide series of books on the Leica D-Lux 4 and D-Lux 5, Panasonic Lumix LX3 and LX5, and the Canon PowerShot S95. Amazon is currently listing them all as shipping within 2-3 weeks. I did a test about a month ago, and the book actually arrived within one week, but a customer recently ordered a Lumix LX5 book, and it did not even ship for about 2 weeks.
So, I am trying to keep a reasonable number of books physically in stock here, so I can ship them right out to anyone who needs one shipped quickly. Currently, I have copies of the books on the Lumix LX5, the Leica D-Lux 5, and the Canon PowerShot S95, all for sale on Amazon under my seller name, alexstrawhite. When you go to the Amazon listing for one of these books, click on the listing for “New” books, right underneath Amazon’s own listing. For example, here is a link to the “New” listings for the Canon PowerShot S95 book, and here is a link to the “New” listings for the Panasonic Lumix LX5 book. If you order a book directly from me through these listings, I will ship it out by the next business day, and it should arrive within 2-3 days after that. (Of course, that’s for books shipping within the United States. I ship internationally also, but those shipments naturally take longer.)
You also can order from barnesandnoble.com (bn.com), camerabooks.com, powells.com, and other sellers. Bn.com has had quick shipping and good reliability, at least as far as I have been able to tell.
Of course, all of the books are available in PDF format from this web site, and some of them are available for the Kindle; check the ordering page for each book for more information.
