A few shops in Holland are already giving a delivery in two or three working days. So it will probably be there on Monday or Tuesday.

So how about the quake in Japan. Could it affect the
K-1? Obviously the first batch is ready, but at least one sony cmos plant is out of order.
I interpret Sony´s press release: http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/IR/news/20160418E.pdf that the factory is dammaged , but there are enought sensors in stock.

That's why I asked if we know anything about the motor, spec-wise.
Hi. A buddy of mine now tried a K-1 with DFA 70-200/2.8. According to him, the AF is fast, on par with a D750 + current Tamron 70-200/2.8. So maybe, not all is lost

I received the 70-200mm a few days ago. The motor sounds different than on other Pentax lenses, even the 150-450mm. Will be exciting to test it with the K-1!

Are they making the FF sensors at this plant anyway? (A news article said something about small sensors for phones)

Maybe the FF sensors have been reduced to smartphone sensors after the earthcake...

I've heard 25th and 28th never 22nd. But on Pentax K-1 site there is an article released on the 22nd, maybe that is what you saw?
