Yep, ordered October 8th.
I am jealous - I ordered mine from B&H on the 7th and it still shows "ON ORDER" but I am very glad they have started shipping before the end of the month.

Well, as a returning customer for silver limited bodies, they might have given some more attention to my order - or it is just a mysterious "last-in-first-out" game ,
but yours should arrive very soon i suppose.

I'm looking forward to brassing the heck out of my copy.
Oh it is brass underneath the silver (paint?)?

First impressions...I'm already 10 minutes behind schedule so they'll be quick:

-The silver color of the FA Limiteds is just a bit more gray than the body. I'd say it's a 95%+ color match. Very hard to tell a difference unless you look at it.
-Leather strap is actually reddish with red stitching.
-This thing is FAST.
-AF is a rocket, even with the 77. This bullet point deserves its own line relative to the one above it.

A quick sample with the 77 at f/2.8 (IMGP0003.jpg )



Will post pics of the camera later tonight or tomorrow

All i have to say is wow ... AF has changed for the better ... coming from a K-5, I occasionally had some issues with my smc PENTAX-DA 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 ED AL [IF] DC WR lens. When say between 35mm-70mm AF would just not lock. Now, like a champ and damn fast - noticeably faster than the K-5. Photos seem sharper as well. I could not be happier! there are a few different in-camera settings as well, so it will be a bit of time before I get used to her and set it up to the way i like. Will also have to re-calibrate all my lenses this weekend. (sorry photos taken with an iPhone of the unpacking)
