Some Hope

Just checked 4 previous shipping confirmation e-mails from Amazon (for different products), and all came later in the evening.

1) 6:50 PM
2) 9:01 PM
3) 9:10 PM
4) 10: 05 PM

All I'm saying is that there is still hope that our cameras will ship out today, and we just haven't received confirmation e-mails yet.

Fingers crossed,
Rye

I have the same message but my shipping estimate date is July 9th. Delivery estimate is sometime next week. super saver shipping always takes a day or two extra.

Good. I'll take yours!


You're right, not like I'm worrying about Adorama missing a sale with my cancellation.
My order from Amazon has shipped with a tomorrow delivery.

I think people are over-estimating the number of pre-orders as well as people ordering right now; I'm sure there are still hundreds of K7 in stock anywhere in the US.

CCC got 20 of them I bet they still have at least 10 in stock.

Mine has shipped and is due here Wednesday. Looks like there will be no Sigma DP-1 style shortages. So far I think pentax has rolled this thing out beautifully.

Booooo

Just got this email from Amazon:

Hello,

Looking into your order, I see that "Pentax K-7 14.6 MP Digital SLR with Shake Reduction and 720p HD Video (Body Only)" is back-ordered. I'm sorry about this delay--we certainly didn't expect that this would happen.

I want to make sure your order gets to you faster once we have stock. To help make up for the delay, I will refund the shipping charges as and when the order ships.

As soon as we receive more stock, we'll ship your order and send you an e-mail to let you know.

Got mine from amazon this afternoon. It's a beautiful camera. The battery took about 5 hours to charge and it was a terrible wait.

First impressions: the shutter is extremely quiet, AF does seem to be improved, IQ seems great on the LCD, and video is ok.

Overall I say the wait was worth it

Woo hoo mine's shipped as well, due here tomorrow (please let me be here when it arrives, please!)...I'm guessing that Amazon received several shipments to different warehouses, since mine is coming from Lexington, KY. I'm guessing that not everyeone's will be coming from there?

I'm not sure. I would assume they should be soon. The manual says that a full charge for the battery may take up to 6 and a half hours.
