Well I got a call from the billing department at the pentax store because I had a different shipping address and innocently I asked "so are they shipping?" And the lady said: "oh no sir not until the 10th".

So maybe a little bit before the 15th?

I'm getting one. Heard a good and very special price (for me only) and taking that. Will sell one K-5.
Sounds like you are getting one at dealer cost, nothing wrong with that. Can`t wait to read your opinions on focus speed.

I just talked to B&H and got this response:

"The "Expected availability" is October 15 2012. It has not as of yet today arrived."

Just talked with a pentax rep. They said it looks like another week before the K5ii will ship out. End of this week at the earliest

Really disappointing! So we won't see any reviews for a couple of weeks then. Crap one!

Ouch! That hurts... I was really looking forward to reading a bunch of review and such tonight, too

I somewhat expected this given the pre-production samples people have seen very recently. I'd much rather have them get it right, though!

Just got this response from B&H with respect to K-5 ii:

"Unfortunately, at this time we don't have an estimate for the arrival of this new product. Although we have received a few shipments, It is being released in limited quantities by the manufacturer. As we receive them, we fulfill the orders that were placed most in advance.

Other than what we show on our web page we have no further information as to anticipated delivery schedule/date. We do not have access to the list of pre-orders/backorders, but are aware that there are quite a few."

Here's the mail i got from the pentax store:

"Due to an unusually large response, we are temporarily out of stock of the item(s) you ordered. Additional quantities are on order and we expect them soon. Your order will receive priority upon receipt in the warehouse, and we expect to be able to ship order within 30 days or sooner. We are very sorry for the delay and assure you that we are making every effort to expedite your order. If you wish to cancel your order, please call us or e-mail us at the address listed above. We believe the wait will be worthwhile, but of course the choice is yours.

Sincerely,

Customer Service"

^ that reply from the Pentax Store looks like a form letter that doesn't know whether or not any cameras actually shipped. If any reviews come out today, we'll know that at least some K5ii's made it out.
