Pentax web store was showing "All Backordered" for me on my 21mm order. That didn't sound very good to me, so I gave them a call.

I was told that they are all backordered until May 31st. May 31st is when they are expected to come into Pentax, and after that is when the order will be processed.

At least that's what I was told

In fact I am vey surprised to get it in retail shop in Hk two weeks ago. We were told that all da silver limited was on hold when it was announced.

Therefore when I found it was available, immediate rely went out to get whole set...... Very happy to get it with my silver k5...

Maybe the stories of making 500 sets were true. I wonder how many K-5 Silver bodies were made.

In talking with the U.S. Pentax Webstore they didn't get any 21's in their first shipment. They did get the 40 and the 70, but the 21 silver limited has yet to show up in the U.S.

Mine shipped as well, although I used standard shipping and it's showing next Wednesday or Thursday. Can't wait to try it out.
