I know the feeling! UPS showed up with my K-5 yesterday! Except I wasn't there for 2 minutes so they left the standard note that they will try to deliver it later...

NOOOOOOOOO.......

So....I actually drove to the UPS distribution center 20 miles away and picked it up later in the evening after the driver was done with his route. I wasn't going to wait till Monday.

I love my new camera.

The exact thing happened to me when I ordered my K-x last year . Photography has that special allure and knowing that the camera is just hours or minutes away can drive you batty
and you'll do almost anything to get your hands on it. When I ordered the K-7, I made sure I was there for UPS...

LOL!! I actually called UPS and DEMANDED that they send the driver back. And I knew perfectly well they couldn't do that as my business ships many items daily via UPS...but alas...the truck that delivered to my home was not the same truck as work.

But the national UPS service person felt my pain and went out of their way to actually call the local distribution center and make sure they held it from going to the metro distribution center (which is where it would've ended up for the weekend). I'm thankful for that!

And now I'm playing around with brutally clear high ISO just to say I did.

And WOW! I absolutely LOVE the artificial horizon you can use to keep the camera level. This will come in super handy for night exposures!

You sure it isn't turned off? The beep I mean. You can turn it on and off for various features and functions.
