Reatiler Here says i might have 5pcs K-5 by Dec the rest is next year end of Jan the latest. All the k-5 that was shipped to EU are already booked/reserved (Distributed over the retailers in all EU). They never expected the demand to be high.

For the Meantime i'll buy k-r. since my K-10D was damaged =(

That's because Brussels is Pentax' central warehouse hub for Europe.

Harbour ? it comes with a boat ? This means they already left Asia..because it takes a while to get here.
I've done a lot of import/export in the past. Rarely do expensive electronics ship by sea. It takes too long and long sea journeys aren't exactly "healthy" for electronics. Obviously air freight is more expensive, but more reliable and a lot lower return rate after units are sold.

6-8 weeks....
That is just about the time minus a week you have to wait for a repair if they have to order parts from factory.


AFAIK companies are not too happy about shipping sensitive stuff with sensors etc by air.... My brother works with CCTV and they have everything shipped by sea...
That is exactly the opposite of my experience. I used to work for an import/export firm and most of the electronics we handled went by air. We were told that it was because 1)Air freight has an exact TOA (time of arrival) so that logistics scheduling is easier and 2) Sea travel and it's accompanying moisture bothered the electronics more that air travel did.
Go figure.

That is new.... And I don't think entirely true. Same was said with K-7 and after the first batch, the second was only one or two weeks later. Besides, not all countries are taking pre orders yet, ( K-5 + 18-135 is not yet available for pre -order in the Neherlands and Belgium).

Besides, have heard about delay because of FW issues
