One thing I did not like on that website: delivery LATE April. I guess we knew that, but I hate to see it stated so officially.

two other things to note:
1. we get to see an image of the 70-200 on the K-1 with 1.0 firmware
2. the file sixe fot the pixel shifted image isn't much bigger than the non-pixel shifted

It always was late April, more specific after April 21.

When I pre-ordered at B&H their site said April 5th. I knew it was too good to be true but it did say that... I should have screencapped it and made it my signature haha...

Maybe they hoped people would hope to get their camera earlier, and preorder from B&H instead of other places?

BULLETIN: Ricoh has issued a clarification. Delivery of the K1 will begin after April 21, 2061, not 2016, and each merchant will be receiving two bodies only. Ricoh apologizes for the typographical error in the date.

Eye-Relief Length Approx. 20.6mm (from the view window), Approx. 21.7mm (from the center of lens)
I haven't seen eye relief quoted for cameras, but it is commonly quoted for binoculars because of its importance to the birding market. The specification for eye relief enables potential eyeglass-wearing customers to judge whether they will be able to see the entire field of view when looking through the binoculars while wearing eyeglasses. Taking the time to lift the eyeglasses out of the way to see the entire field of view is not a viable option since this often means the bird is gone by the time you get your binoculars trained on the bird's location, not to mention the fact that birders raise binoculars to their eyes dozens to hundreds of times per day. 21 mm or greater eye relief is suitable for eyeglass wearers.

It was probably just for the hope of extra sales. I went with B&H over Adorama solely because their listed date was sooner... I knew April 5th wasn't going to happen, but Adorama was listing sometime in May at that point.. (I pre-ordered a couple days after announcement)...
