The official Pentax site K-1 in America date is May 3... of course they don't say what year.
FWIW, my dealer was able to supply my K1 to me this afternoon.
It's a very nice camera.
Very nice indeed.

Indeed. Who doesn't feel better after getting some fresh supply from their dealer?

Good for you. Ordered on March 9th, still says sent to warehouse for shipping... Mine had 20 items and was an international ship... maybe they set it aside as no one wanted to do the customs paperwork...

According to UPS my delivery date is May 9th, 2016 (Next Monday) 5 days after it was shipped on the 4th (3 day shipping time + one weekend). When you have been waiting 15 years and 8 months for a Pentax full frame camera those extra two days are as annoying as a mosquito buzzing in your ear.

Hello,


I'm in Paris area.

I pre-ordered my K1 March 19th.

I get it last Saturday April 30th.

Just starting to discover it.

Eric.

Backordered from B&H until June. Ordered on Mid-April. Kinda disappointed.

Well, my K-1 shipped yesterday from B&H. After 1 day it has made it from NY City all the way to Jamaica (NY). I guess they send it by bicycle messenger for the first part of the trip.

Oh well, I bought some software that was shipped Monday by 1 to 3 day express mail - its still not here.

Jamaica is the location of the airport / distribution center. It's waiting on a flight or truck depending on your shipping selection.

I have the expedited 3 day delivery. Which - of course - means it will take 5 days to get here. (Its free; only a dollar. Sorry, old Firesign Theater joke).
And yes I know its 3 business days - that just works out to five Calendar days. Of course B&H "Shipped" on the 3rd - evidently just missing the evening UPS pick up. UPS didn't pick it up until the next day - which is why it is still in NY two days after B&H shipped it.

You sure they shipped on the 3rd? Everyone else seems to have been shipped on the 4th. Mine was for sure. I paid extra for overnite and it arrived today at 1:30pm.

I think they (UPS) just gather stuff into batches according to when they have to have it to you, so sometimes things just sit because the delivery day is still a ways out. That has been my experience anyway.

Yes, my status on the 3rd was "in stock order to warehouse" that evening it changed to a tracking number. On the morning of the 4th I got an email saying it had been shipped.

I'm in the same boat. Mine "went to the warehouse" Tuesday, got a shipping label, then I got my "shipped" email about 8:30 am yesterday.
An hour later UPS knew about it, and they picked it up last night and it went to somewhere in NY last night to be sent out again (on a truck, presumably) after 10:00 pm.

And that's "Expedited Delivery"... I'll admit that Amazon's Prime service has spoiled me. I'd almost forgotten UPS did "ground" service... but if "Expedited" is regular ground service, what is their regular shipping like? Maybe it's that guy riding a bicycle from New York to Houston...

I won't be angry unless it misses the Monday delivery they told me, but I'll admit to being less than delighted with the B&H shipping times.

I think expedited is three days or less. They have a map on their site showing shipping times. Local NY & east coast is 1 day, a little further is 2 day and the rest is 3 day.
