What local USA camera stores carries Pentax? I know of none in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Even the local Wolf store has returned all their Pentax cameras.

No more retailers in D/FW. Cooters Village camera was one of the last, and I spoke with them about a month ago and they are selling off existing inventory. They recommended a few other stores in the Metroplex, but I kept running into walls.

Wolf was the only other alternative, and to your point... that seems to be a dead end too.

Amazon now says I can have it delivered by July 7th if I change to 1 day shipping. This is very very temping. but it will cost $30 more.

Ok I just cancelled at Adorama and ordered @ Amazon with one day shipping.

Nothing wrong with Adorama at all, I just need to get the camera asap and be done with it. I had already ordered from them before and it went just fine; for the K7 they should start shipping soon but not tonight apparently.

I ordered with super saver shipping. I just checked and I can no longer change my order since they are preparing for shipping. Still July 9th shipping estimate however...

I did the same as you! Guaranteed delivery by tomorrow! Now hopefully I'll be there to receive it, but that's a different problem.

I'm in the same boat as you.
I sent Amazon an email asking why... but haven't gotten a response. I'm going to be frustrated if ordering early sets me back a few days.

But I will say the last time I got an email from Amazon saying that my order was about to be shipped, it showed up 15 minutes later. Apparently it was drop-shipped from the manufacture and Amazon didn't get the notification until the product had already been delivered. Fingers crossed that the K-7 shows up tomorrow.

did you confirm by email and by phone? I did both, my account stills shows pending but on the phone I was told it's been canceled.

Are you kidding? It shows on stock with tomorrow delivery if you chose one day shipping, I expect no less than getting it tomorrow. they even have a timer that shows the remaining hours for next day shipping. I doubt they would do that if they weren't sure.

Not kidding.
Still says: We are preparing these items for shipment and this portion of your order cannot be canceled or changed.

Delivery estimate:July 9, 2009

Also, my CC hasn't been charged yet. even if it isn't going to ship today, I'd like to understand what has/is happening.
