SO...Who's Placed a Pre-Order?

I wonder how many have actually already pulled the trigger on a pre-order?

Or should I have left this thread to vitalsax to start? ;-)

Ill wait for bestbuy to sell it, they usually give you 12-18 months 0% interest. They have the K20D so I hope they'll carry the K-7.

One of the big camera shops in Japan put up a preorder for 117,000 yen, or $1240ish. I might preorder there as I'm heading to Japan in mid-July...

Very tempting actually, but I'll wait for review on high ISO noise (hopefully 1600 would be usable) and AF speed.

I've pre-ordered. Sigh.. July is so far away. Maybe I will buy a lens to play with in the mean time.

Jsherman has convinced me with his post above that it's worth the wait =)

I'm still really enjoying my K10D anyway...

Just noticed ...Henry's (Canadian retailer) showed a price of $1499.99 when I preorderd yesterday, when the availability first showed up. Today, just 24 hours later, the price is shown as $1599.99 ...interesting!
