Order queue

Just talked to B&H again and they are saying they will ship tomorrow, not today. Guess it is too late in the day there. So hopefully we will see a tracking number tomorrow.
Did B&H indicate how many cameras they have received in the first shipment / if all the back-orders are going to clear?

Sorry, no. I forgot to ask.

I just checked and my order also says sent to warehouse and my credit card has been charged. I didn't pre order until 3/31 so if you ordered before that yours should be coming soon too.

Maybe the truck will stop here tomorrow long enough for a crate or two to fall off in the TCS parking lot, before it makes it's way out west...
Good news! In fact the truck did stop their store today.

Bad news! I left work and missed the notification by 9 minutes, so I won't see it until tomorrow

Whatev's.

I'm a happy camper.

Tracking on the 14mm Samyang that B&H shipped to me on Sunday is shown arriving in Tennessee on Wed, so only 3 days or so... I might be holding the K-1 by the weekend.

Alas, no tracking email from B&H today, and no charge to credit card. Major disappointment given that I ordered the camera about one minute after they became available. If Adorama is already shipping...

My B&H order has also been "sent to warehouse." Heady times!

Mine was delivered by Purolater today after getting into Regina Don's yesterday. Grip is coming via Saskatoon. Chunky thing. Different enough that I am going to have to read the manual.

Pentax K1 - Australian Delivery Tomorrow (5th May)

For Australian buyers: Just got the news that my Pentax K1 has been shipped and will be delivered tomorrow (Thursday 5th May) - 5 days earlier than expected . Not bad considering I ordered on the 2nd April. Plan to test it with over 20 FF lens over the weekend - Can't wait!

Would it be possible to update everyone here when you have firm information you can share? Thanks, that would be appreciated.
Sure. We got some and have started filling existing back orders.

That is proprietary information we would never make public. I do not believe any retailer would do so.

Awesome, I see I got my shipping email this morning. Thank You!

Can you comment on the number of pre-orders and if you will have enough stock to fill all of them? I know some folks who ordered later are anxious.

Eh. Anxiety doesn't change reality.

See my signature for my outlook.

Of course not. However I have found that continuously refreshing the page at B&H does somehow speed up things. Weird.

Thanks for helping us maintain sanity, Henry!

By any chance, would B&H similarly conceal the # of preorders they received between announcement and delivery? I have no concept of volume, even in terms of orders of magnitude.
