K20D ships to customers this Monday!

Germany's supposed-to-be best Pentax online dealer (tekade) flags them as available within 2-4 days and writes:

"Now official: In stock at monday/tuesday: K20D -- It starts now, the K20D is coming and shipment to customers is scheduled for monday or tuesday."

"Nun amtlich: Ab Montag/Dienstag lieferbar: K20D -- Es geht los, die K20D rollt an und kann wohl ab Montag/Dienstag ausgeliefert werden."

In Pentax's Japanese homepage, it states "Early March":-

PENTAX News Release 2008 : ??????????????????????????PENTAX K20D?

In the Amazon webpage, it says "May Fifth":- Pentax K20D 14.6MP Digital SLR Camera with Shake Reduction (Body Only): Camera & Photo

When will it be released at your place? Do you know about it? E.g., European countries.
First week of March in France...

In Canada, my dealer got confirmation from the Pentax representative for an early March delivery.
This is what I've been told as well, and the K200 will be released a few days later.

If I have a day or 2 off then I'll be helping out with a shootout against the Sigma SD14, and possibly a Nikon.

It will be released where you are one day before you can write a bad review on it.
I'm looking forward to seeing Rices review. And so far he hasn't said anything bad about it that I've seen.

On a side note,
Does anyone know when the new 18 - 55mm lens is being released? I hope that it's coming with the new cameras, plus I'm really hoping that it's an improvement over the old version.
