I really hope this is what happened to me, but I've got the nagging feeling I just missed the first batch. If you want to read about my woes here, I just had my K110D stolen and am making my K20D my backup camera and getting a K-7 to replace it. I placed order #A1246816479599406 this weekend and got a backorder notice this morning. I was really hoping to get a replacement camera in hands this week.

Adorama is my preferred camera store since local shops don't really carry Pentax. The only problem I have with Adorama is their filter options load last when browsing, so it takes much longer to reject the Canon and Nikon lenses when I'm browsing and drooling....
I placed my pre-order on June 6th . . . spoke with Leah R at Adorama this morning and she sent me a copy of the final order and advised I should receive my K7 by the 9th.

I have never had a problem with Adorama on purchases or returns . . . they are my first source of supply.

Considering the volume of preorders for the K7, I would find it doubtful that you could order this past weekend and expect to receive this week . . . but, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Due to a mess-up by the carrier who were supposed to deliver Friday, they only arrived into our warehouse this morning. As of this posting, they aren't showing on the system so I can't see if your order is on that first shipment in to us.

You are welcome to give me a nudge tomorrow (Tuesday) morning and I'll check it out again for you.

They were delivered this morning (Monday) and are already packed and are shipping out as I type this. I would be interested to know who gave you inaccurate information; could you please contact me directly. Thanks

I preordered my K-7 on May 27th with Adorama. Just noticed that my account was finally debited around noon today, so I assume my shipment is on the way!

I physically went to the store on 18th Street in Manhattan to try to buy it in person but according to one of the reps it wasn't available. There weren't any in stock and it definitely wasn't on the show floor.

Does your retail and web business operate seperately?

Yes, they do. We hold stock in the store in NYC and stock in our warehouse in NJ for Internet orders. The stock is delivered to NJ and the store allocation goes up to 42 West 18th St by truck.

I apologize that you were inconvenienced; if you would like to call Martino, the storemanager, directly, he should be able to confim that he has them before you pop in again.
