If I were in Japan, I'd have my copy as well :-P Seems like a lot of retailers are letting their customers pick up their units the day before (26th) after a certain time. My retailer told me it's be ready after 4PM. My brother should've picked it up for me, but I haven't heard from him yet!

If they are swapping sensors at the last minute, I'd skip the first batch.

You'd better get one now. If there are problems there wil be a recall and you will get a more updated version than thos who wait to buy...

K7's noise profile does not contain that ugly magenta-green puke as does k20d's.

Hard to tell. Real sensitivity* and WB don't seem to be the same.

EXIF says 3200 ISO, 1/250, and f:20.
Using a * lens and f:20 in a camera test is pretty odd IMO.

I think we need more samples.

*Or whatever it is that makes the K-7 sample look brighter, Could be changes in light.
