Heh. I know I will when I get mine. Didn't get a shipping note though, maybe the flucard on the order. I'll call them tomorrow.

Got messages from Henry's and Canada Post saying mine is on the way as well, expected delivery in two days (Oct 31). Interesting that Canada got something first for once?

Just as I got cold feet and sent an email to cancel my order, I get a reply i my K-5 will arrive tomorrow. So I guess I will know for myself whether the IQ is worse that the K-5 and if the AF is a lot or a little better. To be seen...

Did you mean K-3?

To the OP: Great news for you !!

I am truly amazed that you will be among the very first to receive the K3, and I thought this would be available "elsewhere" before Canada.

I have a request: please post some pics ASAP when you receive it .... I would be particularly interested to see how the AF behaves, especially with longer glass (if you have it) such as the DA*300/4 or similar.

Cheers!

I didn't order from Henry's website, I called the store and ordered from there. I wonder what effect that will have on delivery?

I wanted to support the local store. We had no real camera shop before they opened about five years ago. They always have Pentax on the shelves. I've bought quite a bit of gear there.

Will I be able to process K-3 DNG's with LR4?

Yes. I just did two of the K-3 DNG's off Imaging Resource with LR 4.4. They came out well.

I'm excited for you!

No doubt the K-3 will be able to demonstrate whether it can withstand cold weather in your area...

Will be interesting to hear how you like the positioning of the AF button. Everyone uses the AF button, right?

Too bad that the FluCard is not ready yet. I hope it will work as advertised as it would more than make up for the lack of an articulated back LCD then.

Congratulations on the baby girl as well!

Let's just say I feel for you guys.

As for me, sadly, economy got in the way and I'll have to wait a month, so I guess i'll have it around Christmas.
