It's very K-x like. Went through the menus this afternoon, will take a few shots with it next week. Have ordered a Flu card, too.
We really like our K-x...

Lucky you! Which colour did you get?

Put a fast prime like the DA50 f1.8 on it and look through the viewfinder. It's so bright for such a small camera.

Ooh, your intel was spot on, Rawr. I picked mine up today during my lunch break.
Awesome! hope to see your initial "review" of it and sample pics too. I love my K-x, but it's getting a little slow for my job these days...

According to UPS, my K-S1 will be in town tonight, but I won't receive it until Monday night.

When it first appeared for sale, black was the only choice.

I think the Australian distributors figure the likely buyers here have different tastes to Japan (less whimsical).

Yes, I put the FA77 on it.

At some point the Sigma 150-500 and 10-20 will go on it too. I'm an outdoorsy person and being small it will often accompany me and be asked to do all sorts of tasks.

I applaud you early adopters! You'll have to post a review here on PF once you get your hands dirty with the camera.

FYI, they're available on Amazon and last time I was in the Warehouse there were actually a couple of used ones already. Probably just damaged box items. They have a tendency to do that. Put anything with a less than perfect box in the Warehouse Deals section. You might be able to pick up one cheaper if you check there, but there's no warranty so buy accordingly.

Does anyone have feedback re: the K-S1's screw mount AF drive? I'm wondering if Ricoh is moving over to the K-3's faster, torquier motor...

Definitely faster than previous (K-5/30/50/500) motors. Because of this, also more shrill noise on lenses that tend in that direction (DA35/2.4 & 50/1.8, some older Sigmas).

Comparison of K-S1, K-30, and K-x:
