Is this an attempt at getting out of selling at their offer price £2099.00 (which is why I ordered) or are Nikon no longer going to supply Amazon with the D800?
It can only be one or the other !!!.

i suspect it is more to do with Nikon not honouring supplying them at that price. They will no doubt be supplied to Amazon but not at the discounted rate probably because as a large buyer they ordered lots of units at that price that Nikon aren't prepared to supply.
I am in a similar situation with Mathers of Lancashire. I ordered mine 2 months ago at their advertised price of £2095 and paid my deposit. On hearing of the price rise i emailed them to query whether or not it would be honoured and received an email back stating that they were waiting to hear back from Nikon as to whether or not they would supply at the previously agreed price. A few days later and another email confirmed that they would honour the £2095 price but i suspect that as a smaller independent they hadn't pre-ordered that many and therefore Nikon agreed to supply them. Like i said that was 2 months ago and i haven't heard anything with regards to when i am likely to recieve it, and think that Nikon may well have a replacement out for the D700 before i actually receive mine which may cause me to contemplate cancelling depending on the specs of any new releases.

From Amazon ?
Have to agree with Ken 'Warmest Regards' smacks of the scam e-mails from Santander/NatWest et al starting off "Dear valued an esteemed customer...I should beware.
Amazon use mail shots and state "Thank you for your order"
Amazon's current page for the D800 is identical to the page for which the OP has given a link. The price seems to be £2999. However you can get much better prices. See here.
Only amazon have my order number which is correct and I have seen that a number of people on other forums have had the same email. So this is a genuine amazon contact.
If amazon send this "Our supplier has informed us that this item is no longer available."
That's a statement that the D800 is no longer available from Nikon to amazon, not that it's no longer available or going to be supplied at the offer price !!!!.

They were selling it too cheap and Nikon got annoyed! Lol!
Its not to Amazon but the `Seller`who are expected to meet the conditions of sale.
You can still buy a D800 via Amazon, but the order will not be fulfilled by them and the price is very high.
OK. Amazon have now answered my email.They will fulfill my order at the offer price if I reorder when the D800 becomes available again on their site and quote my original order number.
Not ideal, but I must credit Amazon with a quick positive response and keeping to their advertised price. Now just a case of waiting for availibility.
Thta's actually very good, Adrian. I'm pleased to hear they are saying "when" it becomes available and not "if" ! At that price - saving about £500 on the cheapest anywhere else, it must be worth a bit of a wait.
Full marks to Amazon despite the rather odd wording in the initial email.
Demand has outsripped supply it seems as others on here have struggled to find one.
i hope play.com will get a copy of this...I may forward it to them. I have been enquiring about my d800 order I placed mid march when they had if for £2099. I have called and emailed but get nothing back. I guess these suppliers know as much as we do.
