K-5 Silver Pre-Order Is Shipping From Adorama

I just got a notice that my K-5 Silver pre-order is shipping. It's a UPS tracking number, so I assume it'll be going out tomorrow (Monday). Adorama is one shipping-day away from me, which means I should have the K-5 Silver around Tuesday or so. Then maybe I can finally get rid of my avatar.

So the rest of you guys with pre-orders have something to look forward to!

Yay! Got my tracking number from Adorama.

Side note:
I was in the only shop that I know of in the Washington DC area that carries new Pentax equipment (Ace Photo in Ashburn, VA) and they said they were getting in 20 K-5 Silver DSLRs. So if anybody in this area is looking to check one out, you should head out there. I think it's pretty certain it will cost more than ordering online from the big names... but if you like buying in-store and supporting a rare Pentax retailer, you now know where to go.

I just ordered one as well. He said they had a few in stock, but not very many. Looking forward to getting this. Moving back to DSLR's from m43. For some reason I just never "connected" with my e-p1.

I think the silver definitely looks cool, but only with silver lenses, of which I have none. If I had deeper pockets I might put together a travel kit of one of these plus some silver limiteds.

I think my silver Spotmatic looks just fine with black lenses on it. Not sure why it would be any different for a silver K-5.

I guess it's lucky for me I have all silver lenses, then

Well, this is my move into pentax so I'm starting from scratch and I expect to be using this camera for quite some time. I have the 43mm limited in silver on order. Hoping both the camera and lens arrive at the same time or it's going to drive me nuts having one, but not the other!

Ace Photo is great. I've used them prior.

If you ever need to try out Pentax equipment in the greater DC-MD-VA area, they are the place to go. They are often not much more than mail order in my experience, and carry most of Pentax's line. They usually have to hit their stockroom for it, but they have always had something I needed when I've stopped by.

When I picked up the DA* 200 f/2.8 in mid-2009, they were shocked and commented how they've never seen such a short 200mm at f/2.8. They let me try it on including going outside and shooting. I guess their staff doesn't sell as much Pentax as other items, but they've always been complementary towards the equipment when they've sold to myself.

Interesting. A colleague of mine here at work talks up the Micro 4/3rds, and prefers EVIL. Any reasons you don't like it?

But after seeing the kind of quality I've shot with my K20D + DA* 200 f/2.8, he's getting increasingly interested, because Pentax bodies and APS-C sized lenses are hardly any bigger. If Pentax ever introduces an EVIL, I might try to talk him into switching.
