I have started a thread in the Aussie Pentaxians group. We'll see where it goes.

DCW just told me their pre-orders are expected to arrive at their warehouse on Friday, they'll distribute after that.

Just got a call from Ted's, my body is in the store waiting for pickup. Looks like I'm leaving work early today.

To me it sure doesn't look like CRK are holding up the shipment of K-1 pre-orders and deliveries to retailers until the 10 May launch party.

All that anxiety for nothing.

Just recieved mine at 1.30pm , delivery guy surprised me, I wasn't expecting the delivery so soon. Maybe all of our bitching and moaning got CRK's arses into gear.

Got a call from Michael of CRK confirming my entry to the K-1 launch party, then I called DCW regarding my pre-order, was told my order will be arriving 17/06/2016! So I promptly cancelled the order and will just buy it at the launch party...Michael has assured me there will be "quite a few" available that night.

Got a call from Paul at Kirk's this morning.He had got a delivery of 4 K-1's and one had my name on it! I was there within the hour to pick it up and have a play around in the shop. Been at work since, and just got home, so no chance to really test anything, but my overall first impression coming from a k-7/k-5/k-3 was SMOOTH. everything is just a little bit better. The focusing is rapid and sure, the in body motor sounds like a powerful little wasp is doing the driving - (flintstones style, but quietly) The viewfinder screen is impressive. The body is perhaps a little chunky and square shouldered tbh, but I'll get used to it.

Paul told me to let you guys know he has a couple for sale. Go get 'em.

…and maybe it didn't need to. "Someone told me" stories usually turn out to be baseless rumours.

Enjoy your new camera.

Has anyone ordered the 15-30mm? It's still not listed on the website and I haven't heard any mention of if any were arriving with the K-1's. I probably can't afford it at full AU retail but I'd like to see a few in circulation and hopefully some price competition before too long.

My local B&M called to say that CRK have dispatched my K-1 and I "should" have it on Friday... can't wait.

Oh, and if you DO go in to Kirks or another retail outlet, pick up a K-1, put something big on it, and then hold it by the twisty screen and wobble it about. Then watch the salesmans face....hehehe
