Ha, I just posted in that thread after you!

The delivery window has gotten smaller recently (originally went to February 25th for me).

Hey, thanks for the info! I just altered the shipping to one day earlier today. I wonder if they'll discount my shipping cost.

December 29, so pretty close to the beginning of the $316.95 deal. Emailed Amazon Thursday and got the response I quoted.

Which site?
I read this info on the DPReview Pentax slr forum, again FWIW

I ordered on December 28th. Original shipment window was January 18th - February 7th. It got delayed ("we'll notify you when we have an expected delivery date") on February 7th. Just a few minutes ago, I got an email from Amazon saying that they expected to delivery it on February 14th! I guess I won't be alone on Valentine's Day after all

Hello,

We have good news! We're able to get this part of your order to you faster than we originally promised:

"Pentax K-01 16MP APS-C CMOS Compact System Camera Kit with DA 40mm Lens (Yellow)"
Previous estimated arrival date: February 11, 2013 - February 20, 2013
New estimated arrival date: February 13, 2013 - February 14, 2013
Box from B&H today, another tomorrow, K-01 Wednesday or Thursday, plus one more from B&H makes it a busy week (on top of it already being a busy week)!

HEY, NO CUTTING IN LINE!

I ordered on December 28 and still no notice for me. My window remains January 22 through February 14.

And if it hasn't shipped yet, February 14 sounds awfully optimistic.

Yeah looks like the wheels are in motion again:

"Delivery Estimate: Wednesday February 13, 2013 - Thursday February 14, 2013 by 8:00pm"

They already upgraded me to 1 day shipping - I can believe this, my lil yellow Valentine!

I just got my K-01 body from B&H, a day earlier. I hadn't seen a K-01 in person. This thing is great and a steal at $299.

I can't wait to try the Brick.

I complained too soon!

A few minutes ago I received a "your order has shipped" email -- expected delivery is February 14.

Just in time for Disneyland!

Awesome guys!!!

Edit-- you guys should post your build and shutter counts. On the black one I just got, it was 9/2012 and shutter count 1.

Will do, once I figure out where to find build date and shutter count.

I just got a black version (battery is still charging). Charger has date of 08/2012. So far the look and build quality of the camera are underwhelming but I am not too fixated about that. Somewhat surprised that they had to go outside house for that. :-) Nothing was sealed or peel-off stickied-- box, battery leads, screen all naked. Curious if everybody's is the same.

I still can't get them to update me past the whole "We have no idea when it's going to ship" BS.

Shutter count: 0! if it is to be believed (used pentaxforums's shutter count utility)
Builds date: 09/2012

Handles so much better than it looks. Fotunately it's a camera not a date...no dilemmas about keeping it. Excellent pq even at high isos. No time tonight but I have a bunch of lenses to test on it.

Why does the 40mm xs focus ring spin during AF? (my zuiko pancake for MFT never did that)

Can anyone with both black and yellow versions comment on relative looks? Tx.

Well, I guess the last K-01s were produced a little later than I thought - I figured June/July.

I don't know how Zuiko lenses are constructed, but most screwdrive Pentax AF lenses turn the focus ring when focusing.

Oh, there's a discussion that will rapidly go to pieces. All taste is subjective, but I think the Bumblebee is more cheerful, while Black Friday Black has a more "classic" look. I think the black version looks better with lenses like the Ms or zebra-styled M42s.
