K-7 street date ?

If they are just now requesting testers it looks like the K-7 will not show up in the supply chain until late summer.

I would think about this as a marketing move, and not the attempt of getting feedback in order to incorporate it into an unfinished product; we're far too late for that.
So, the K7 should be available soon after it's announcement (let's say, about a month? less than that?)

Well some time ago it was said, that availability is planned end June - beginning of July. So we have
a) 2 months to wait
b) during announcement the release date will be changed and more clear

Enjoy waiting

Announcement 20-21th of May, in shops late June - early July, depending on order situation, stocks etc. Hard to say right now exact date, but Pentax is preparing themselves for a high initial demand.

Yeah. They don't want testers they want glowing comments on blogs from select fans.

Pentax Japan will start having sample models of the K-7 in selected stores in Japan from 23 May - 4 July.
I don't think these are for sale, so I imagine we will be waiting until some time in July at least.

K-7 could be in shops in 2-3 weeks after May, 21 in some places.

It seems to me that the new body will be available in the UK and Europe first, the same has been done with the 60-250mm .. we have had it here for a few weeks now.

I am beginning to think it is a maretig trick to get the crowd moving of a simple research to see how much people are interested...
