DA 20-40 Limited zoom availability

According to Adorama, it appears as if the DA 20-40
should become available in the US mid-January, 2014.

Do you have your copy yet?

I will be interested to hear if your technician
determines any difference in performance
between their silver and black copies,
just to get a handle on the sample variation we can expect.

The press release said that it would come in December- I guess we'll have to wait and see!

Hopefully, Adorama is just hedging a bit. I've read December 6th and 15th, and, as Adam said, Pentax said December, so I'm still going with that.

My friend wasn't working today, she'll make the test tomorrow and ship me the best one between the black and silver.

Hmmm, that's when I ordered, too, but I haven't heard from them. Maybe they didn't get any black ones yet.

Edit: I just checked my order status and it says "in-stock, order sent to warehouse, tracking # pending." So I guess my email will be coming later. Good news! I guess the December 6 date I had read about turned out to be accurate.
