Matt do you mean 10AM PDT? or 10 AM EDT? That's another 3 hrs. But don't worry, I won't be updating DPR or ANY site at 12:01. I get up at 4AM, I'll be long gone to the world at midnight!

Whatever - it's some ungodly hour in the morning here. I can wait til I get to work to check. It's already the 20th here- where's my new camera?

I think so far the only K-7 Teaser countdown that worked was mine! :-))

I just wonder what a large company like Pentax are doing for what have happened? I guess it is not a computer or software bug or human error or whatsoever. If there is something important (changes to specs?) which Pentax have decided to withhold the announcement for more hours??

ok I'm not waiting any longer, I'm going to bed before I turn into a pumpkin,
the K7 gets stolen by some ninja and becomes some canikon monstrosity,
Ned appears and says April fools a month an 21 days late and begins throwing tomatoes at us,
the Beatles show up and start singing Lucy inn the Sky with Da*'s
Ogl pepretrated the greatest hoax in camera history,
Rice decides Pentax sucks again,
Falconeye buys a Holga,
Ben sells his Pentaxes and gets a hassy

or some other not so far fetched insane world ending event

I'll catch up in 9 hours 27 min and I forgot the seconds.

Btw there was a blank placeholder on the German site for like 5 min then the counter reset to 15 hrs and it all vanished.

pentaximaging.com says only 8 hours 21 minutes on my machine, at 22:38 CEST...

pentax.de says 17 hours 21 minutes, though.

I think the flash code doesn't quite work with either different time zones or localised date formats.
Now both are in sync, and count down to 16:00 CEST :-)

But they still use my computer's time, so I guess they just fixed some time zone bug.

If anyone want the precise time then type into Google.
"Tokyo time"
When that clock hits 00:00 then its release time.
