DA Limited's in Silver

Has there been any word on when the new silver limiteds will be released. I have the K-5 Silver on it's way along with the 43 limited, but I really wanted to pick up the 21 mm limited as well. I know the camera is shipping, but haven't seen any mention of when the lenses will ship.

I spoke to my local London supplier and he said mid to late March. Ron, I know where you can order them in UK but not overseas... Apparently though, unlike FA ltds, which are readily available in both colours, these DAs will be available only in limited quantities. We'll see...

They have them for pre-order on their webstore and I've seen them on Adorama, but they have no details on availability dates.

Anyone else notice that the silver DA Limiteds are no longer listed at Adorama or B&H?

Have they been canceled?

I still see them listed at the Pentax Webstore, but they're always 2 beats behind the real world.

I don't think they have been canceled. The word from good Pentax retailer in UK has it that these will actually be "limited", in terms of quantities. That means not everyone will have them due to limited supply. In UK they should be out before Easter....

The reply I got from Adorama is that the product has been "discontinued" and there's "no record of future availability".

Is that's really the case, I am not impressed. No-one ever advised me of it, and my pre-orders are still pending.

This just confirms what I wrote before. There will be very little amount of these available and only few chosen stockists will probably have them. It seems that some stockists put the pictures and pre orders up assuming these silver DA ltds will be just like silver FA ltds (read widely available) and when they realised that's not the case, they will be cancelling pre orders...

No news on any of them going to be arriving in The Netherlands. I do have them on pre-order, just in case.

Has anyone who ordered through the Pentax store been charged for the lens? I ordered a few days ago and my card was just charged. Does this mean it might be shipping soon or do they charge everyone before shipping? I'm going to give them a call later today to see what they say.

Called the Pentax Webstore and they indicated they are expecting to receive them in the warehouse around April 21st.
