I was a Feb 18 pre-order at B&H - when was yours?
03/08/2016.

I had ordered in the first batch, but I thought I was going to move, so I waited until I knew.

Not sure which batch, but Wed. is but a few hours away...in the grand scheme of things.
I waited 16 years...a few more hours is not going to make a difference.



I just want someone to hold me when I cry when I open it.
Such a long, long wait.

Thanks for that. I was wondering exactly how large the K-1 is in comparison to the K-5 II. It's quite taller... but that is a nice thing imo as my hand will fit completely on the main grip without use of an extra battery style grip attached.

oh and nice touch with the secrety secret cat photo included.. hehehe

I have pretty big hands so it's quite comfortable for me. Noticeably heavier, though. On the photo that's a FA 43mm on the K-1 and the FA 77mm on the K-5 IIs.

As for a comparison, this does a pretty good job. Angle on my iPhone photo is a little weird for a direct compare: K-1 vs K-5 IIs

I got the call!

Just got the call from my local camera store.....Picked it up....now I'm counting the minutes until workday ends and the fun begins. Thankfully, I have a fully charged battery ready to go.

And the way B&H ships, you can't redirect the package to a shop ahead of the delivery attempt...
Can't you do that with UPS my choice? As far as I remember you just need to create an account and verify the physical address.

I came to the exact same 'understanding with my local dealer. Sales Tax was about $160. In return a lightweight monopod, small Bower Speedlight and a 64Gb Lexar 90Mbps Sd card found their way into my bag.

If only I have any local store that carries it, I'd have done the same thing too. Now gotta wait out for the re-stock whenever that is from B&H.
