April is not over

---------- Post added 27th Apr 2016 at 22:13 ----------

Nikon D500 was also due end of April. Same situation than Pentax


April is not over but unless they ship it over night, i dont think it will be delivered in april. Makes me wish i never ordered it directly from ricoh. If i would have known this id go with another source.

No wonder.
Right... couldn't be because 99% of those posts were from before the "like" feature was implemented.

Haha awesome!!!

I would love to hear numbers. How many units were pre ordered? How big is the first batch Ricoh pushed out to the enthusiastic pentaxians?

It seems like bad timing in Ricoh's part. I'd think they'd be aware of the popularity of B&H and Adorama and equally aware of their religious practices. Why would you make your release date during the week the two largest camera stores are down?
Closing for Passover is a business decision these two companies have made in a market that is not known to be an especially big one for Pentax. I hate to break it to you, but the USA is not the center of the universe, and the business decisions of Japanese companies is not dictated by the practices of a couple of stores closing for Jewish holidays.

If the camera is going to be unexpectedly delayed in this country, then tell us. Why the secrecy? I know a lot of people would feel better if they just knew something official.

I've gone to order stuff on eBay from Chinese vendors and seen a note that orders would not be processed and shipped until after the week of (date) as they were closed for business in observance of the New Year.

Many people have been waiting 10 years for the K-1. Relatively speaking a few more days is insignificant although it may feel like another 10 years.

How are these businesses going to tell you when they are closed and their religious practices prohibit them from doing work during the holiday? Some even feel answering the telephone (even voice mail) to be "work".

B&H and Adorama are not the only camera dealers in the country. And they may not know anyway. I'm talking about Ricoh.

Ricoh's Webstore is a Dealer the same as any other Dealer, except that it intentionally doesn't compete with Ricoh's independent Dealers.

I actually made the decision to put my trip to the Newport Aquarium off for a week because of the delay.

Just because I want Ricoh to consider everyone when planning a release date doesn't mean I'm an arrogant and myopic American stereotype. I'm fully aware that this is a global release and there are multiple markets at play. I'm also aware that the US isn't their largest market.


I said I thought it was a poor decision on Ricoh's part. Would it be a better decision to release the camera when MORE customers can access it on the release date? I certainly think so.


Let's not forget that many of us have been waiting more than a decade for this camera. Waiting longer is by no means a big deal, but it can be pretty damn frustrating.
