Have you pre ordered?

So, let's see how many have actually put their money where their mouth is, so to speak. Please do not post if you haven't actually pre ordered. Thinking about it or planning on it doesn't count!

I'll start off - my order is in.

Two pre-orders, one from B&H and one from Adorama, to see which one comes in first

I did from B&H, but the price is a little higher than what it is in Adam's link.

Been a Pentax driver since 1966. First time I have pre-ordered any camera. Ordered mine through B&H. It is going to be awesome. Anyone want to buy my Sony A7 II?

Just pre-ordered camera and grip from B&H. First SLR I ever bought new! (My Topcon Super-D cameras were all bought used, as were all my Pentax digital and film SLRs.) I've got 13 FA primes, one F prime (85 soft), and 16 A primes. Been buying lenses to be ready for this camera. Will be interesting to see what aftermarket focusing screens arrive to make manual focus easy...

I pre-ordered mine even before reading about the features of the K-1. I'm that excited! Can't wait!

I just got off the phone with the Aussie distributor, C.R. Kennedy. I'm on the list for the first batch to hit our shores. Looks like mid- late april. No firm indication on price, but it should be more or less in line with the US price. Apparently they are run off their feet with enquiries and pre-orders. Well done Pentax!
