Thanks for posting. I hope it doesn't get pushed back any more than that. I'm 45 years old, but now that I've made the decision to get a good digicam (that is, not my iPhone!) to replace the dSLR I could no longer use, I'm as impatient as a 4-year-old waiting for her first Barbie.

This is good... now I wonder when the expected DA 50 f/1.8 will hit the shelves.

It better get here before my friend gets his Fuji X Pro 1! We're going to have our own battle at F-Stop Ridge!

A note on the Amazon.co.uk page:
Please note that release dates are subject to change

Why don't they offer the yellow one without the kit lens?!

And Amazon.co.jp says March 15.

It doesn't appear that anyone knows anything - unless Pentax is going to stagger the release dates worldwide.

I'll go with that nobody knows anything! If they were going to stagger, I'd bet that Japan would get it before UK. I am a little worried that talk about the K-01 has fell off the radar a little - no more per-release reviews and most worryingly, no sample photos or videos of what it can do - unless I am looking in the wrong places. I admit I don't really track new cameras, so I don't know if this is normal. But I would expect a proper review with samples by now?

Maybe Pentax forgot how to make cameras and this will be their first new camera that can't take photos or videos correctly.

Look at K-01 images here:
