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?
Challengers | PENTAX K-1 Special site | RICOH IMAGING
I think I was thinking the deadline date to get in the pre-order prize contest.

Whole lotta nope

When I tried to get info or update on my order with the Pentax USA store, I was told they don't communicate much with Japan and that they would know orders were shipped when users started receiving product. All the pre-orders were handled through a 3rd party site (who also knows nothing). Its been really frustrating leaving the nearly $2k pending with literally zero feedback.

I did notice that today Amazon has posted the K-1 available in the Prime store, so I'm thinking that I may cancel my order with the company directly and move my funds over to Amazon to get free shipping and have the camera in my hands by Wednesday. Not sure if there is any incentive from Pentax USA to keep us all from doing exactly that, but it seems crazy that at this point the general public will almost certainly receive their K-1's through either online or walk-in retailers before any of us pre-order buyers.

Like in the supermarket, it is never a good Idea to switch lines.

Like at the supermarket, if you try to go at the same time of everybody else, you don't have to wait Order in 6 months, likely you'll be able to get it the next day or the day just after

Out of stock already!
That's epic!

I just hope I can get my hands on one on Thursday when my local store is presenting it.. Though the apprentice told me they'll only stock them on the 5th. But he's the apprentice.

They may have had low stock initially; we don't know how many they received in the first place..

Actually they have never had any in stock. When the date Amazon had in the computer for 'shipping' rolled over as it did this morning, the computer checked inventory, found zero, and set the listing to "shipping" and "temporarily out of stock".

According to a post on Facebook by SRS Microsystems they received word that their shipment was en-route and might hit the store by Wednesday.
