Better check that calendar...

In other news, I left Kohler for a new American Standard Champion 4. Comfort height, will flush a bucket of golf balls, and a non-stick surface for those special occasions. With the extended wax ring Shake Reduction/flex can vary from 1/4" to 1". Try that with your IBIS.
Bet it can't cope with some of the s*** on this forum.

if anyone could answer this, i would be grateful :-) i ordered the K-1 with the grip. You think its possible that the K-1 starts shipping first without the grip being available? i hope my order will not be pushed behind because of the grip availability..

My guess is that there will be plenty of grips available. I doubt that will hold anything up for you.

My wife preordered and was given a date of April 25 by B and H for what it's worth (the original date was a little earlier, but they moved it back).

Yay! The DA70 works very well. Need to stop down a good bit and maybe slightly crop (and add a little de-vignetting) for good landscape shots, but for closeups and portraits the vignetting will probably just add to the picture.

I think I've only seen very good pictures from this lens so far. What a kit lens!

Challengers | PENTAX K-1 Special site | RICOH IMAGING I note the arc of articles with their planned release dates, a week apart, the last of which is April 22nd. The Ricoh Facebook contest closes on the 19th. Figuring in time taken to contact the winner and get the camera to them (from the nearest continental HQ), I reckon the shelf date in stores is going to be the 29th (one week after the release of the last article).

The official launch date for the K-1 in Japan has been announced. It's April 28.

PENTAX K-1

This means the date when it will definitely be available in all major electronics stores. In the past I've noticed that people have reported receiving their cameras in other countries in advance of the announced dates for Japan, so it doesn't necessarily mean that pre orders elsewhere will have to wait for the Japan release.

They haven't confirmed this yet, but if i understood correctly, there will be a smaller shipment that goes out before the official date. I know i am going around to the stores that are gonna sell K-1 to give them a demo with the camera before they put it in the stores. Im shure i need a camera for that

Not bad guessing on my part.

BTW I found this (from the K-1 special site) interesting:

QuoteQuote:
The current design team consists of designers from both RICOH and former PENTAX. The PENTAX K-1 was the first camera designed by this joint team. First, the design team began to analyze the product concept, led by a veteran of more than 25 years of PENTAX SLR camera design.
So, then - very much a joint effort, but with a lot of weight given to Pentax's design heritage.
