Harish Hedge,

Because of the weekend, thats why you are getting it on the 18th. You might beat me to it though, I highly doubted that I will get mine by Monday...

Keep me updated as well...

Yeah, likewise. We're on the slow boat from the Philippines.

I pinged Pentax for tracking info, we'll see if they get back to me.

For the first time in my life I splurged with overnight delivery from Amazon after deciding not to wait for the price to drop. Its shipped and I will have it 11AM Friday. My schedule has been cleared for the 48 hrs that follow.

Yahoo! Toys are fun!

For those of you smirking at the child-like excitement about an overpriced toy.....keep smirking while I enjoy life.

You are correct however there are 2 reasons I didn't:
1- don't want to apply for a credit card (I payed from my Bank card)
2- if I was remotely interested in saving coin on this I would have waited 4 weeks.

I was talking about the Amazon Prime membership program (free two-day shipping, $3.99 overnight on all items sold by Amazon), not the Amazon CC... and it would be a net negative in the short term. I'm just saying Amazon Prime is one of the best deals going, in general.

Wolfie, you are a clever fella. I missed your point the first time and now see that a free trial membership for a week then cancel before the $79 fee would have worked. I purchase so little on Amazon I am not familiar with most of the their programs.

Yeah, Prime isn't a great deal if you don't use Amazon a lot, but I buy tons of books and games, and some larger items, so the program more than pays for itself over the course of a year.
