I'm tremendously sorry and can but admit my complete and utter ignorance of that beautiful language. No offence meant in any way.
None taken. Being part of a tiny language, we need to be thrice more aggressive in evangelizing and take pride in our excessively difficult and quirky (by European standards) language.

So, finally.... got the tracking number a few seconds ago. Since my K-1 is only 263Km away. I think the weekend is a good starting point for my full frame friendship YES!

seeing that beautiful pile of 67 boxed K-1s at SRS in the UK makes me feel like I've not been invited to to biggest party in a decade - constraints purely financial, I'm not even pretending to myself I don't want one - time to make a plan ;D

The full 'monster' kit would include the D-BG6 battery grip.

Wouldn't that be the usual way things go ?
North America always gets photo gear last.


And half an hour later in Newfoundland! ((jokingly said)).
I wish! Seriously though, if there were any photo store in Newfoundland willing to stock the K-1 (and there aren't any) they would probably come from Mississauga (Ontario).

It is now being delivered in Belgium (and I suppose in the rest of the EU except Holland because our king had his birthday yesterday)

I see I'm not the only one who took the time to count them. Four times. Even though I knew I did not err the first time around.

Oh how I want to be in that number... Just a few more days, hopefully. Congrats!

Indeed and I am under the impression that Canadians will have to wait a while longer before the K-1 appears anywhere in this country.
Your best bet would be to order from The Camera Store (Alberta) or Aden Camera (Ontario) for the best prices, of course when available.
I am not buying a K-1 but I sure keep an eye on what's happening !

Hi all, K-1 picked up early this morning in the Paris Pentax Shop ; altogether around 30 people are in the process to get theirs by next saturday. Plus some more despatched via express mail.

Mine should be ready for me next week..
However I did get to play with a pre production model in the shop today!

And I got this:






Also, the screen moves out SO SMOOOOOTHLY! :3

I can't wait for the phone call of the shop

The Ricoh rep was also quite surprised that I had pre ordered such a long time ago and way very happy with my lens I had mounted to my camera as I came in (SMC Tak 28/3.5) and wasn't upset at all that I wasn't interested in any lenses.

Can't wait. have to..
