Man, I can't wait till mine arrives. I just got an e-mail this morning notifying me that the camera is ... still on backorder. They must be trickling in to B&H or they must have a huge order backlog to fill. At least my order says it's ;on order' so I'll still get a silver one.

I had an order at B&H for a 21mm Limited in silver (smc) a couple years ago when those were first released. It stayed listed as "on order" for over 6 months. Pentax never made any more after that, but B&H continued to state that they had some "on order". Eventually I wised up and just canceled the order. To this day, they never got any more. It would've stayed "on order" for over 2 years, and B&H would've continued to tell me it was "on order".

And this isn't new or anything, they do this ALL THE TIME for limited edition products.

I'm not trying to burst your bubble, I'm saying you should try to look elsewhere for a silver K-3 before they're all gone and you have nothing to show for it other than the "on order" status at B&H. That's what I did.

So, yes, I did exactly what you suggested. I found another store and ordered it last night. It ships tomorrow and will arrive Wednesday. I got the impressing mine was one of the last three the other store had in stock. And yes, I will share that store's name once I have my silver one in hand. I've shopped extensively for photo supplies (film and paper) from this other store. I should have just gone to them in the first place. No run around, no hassles.

Just felt a little inclined to induce some potential jealousy

Finally arrived! Thank you, Adorama, for having a few left in stock when B&H didn't complete my order.

I had an email yesterday from SRS Microsystems saying my silver edition has shipped. I believe them, because £1,399 has disappeared from my account. The only trouble is, their courier doesn't deliver on Saturdays, so I have to wait until Monday!


(darn frownies are not working)!

It's arrived! Initial impression is that the autofocus is much improved over the K-5. In single mode, it seems to be as good as my D800. Haven't tried tracking yet. It also works beautifully with the AF360 FGZ II flash in P-TTL mode. I was using bounce flash off the ceiling and the exposures were spot on. Early days yet, but so far, I'm very, very pleased.

The only thing I wish Pentax had done was number the K-3s in sequence in addition to the SN. I would have liked a #### of 2,000 on the bottom or somewhere else.
