For what it's worth, the Pentax special K-1 site says "scheduled to be released on 4/22".

Unless the production of the parts (or a important part) is made in a factory of the affected zone, i think is unlikely

They're talking about the last article from the Challengers series. Not about the camera.

Just spoke with B&H....

Delivery will be in early May for a Mid - Feb preorder.... Probably after they reopen from Passover...
Im not familiar with holidays in the US (or with the ones regarding the religion) what is this "Passover"?

Sorry. That's kind of easy to misinterpret, though. Thank you for the correction.

Wikipedia Passover.
Passover or Pesach (/ˈpɛsɑːx, ˈpeɪsɑːx/;[4] from Hebrew פֶּסַח Pesah, Pesakh, Assyrian; ܦܸܨܚܵܐ"piskha"), is an important, biblically derived Jewish festival. The Jewish people celebrate Passover as a commemoration of their liberation by God from slavery in Egypt and their freedom as a nation under the leadership of Moses. It commemorates the story of the Exodus as described in the Hebrew Bible especially in the Book of Exodus, in which the Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt.
The two major New York photographic delaers, B&H and Adorama, are owned by (I think) Hasidic Jewish familes - at any rate they are at least Orthodox. By tradition they do not work on Holy Days, which includes Sundown Friday to Sundown Saturday and several significant religious periods throughout the year, including Passover.

During those periods there are no shipments made, phones answered and even the online ordering systems are shut down.

I had to wait until after 9:00p/m/ last night to order my K-1.

Thanks for the clarification, i google Passover but only got reference for "pass over", i knew something about the religion of the owners of the stores but im not have enough knowledge about their holidays.

Last February I didn't expect an Income Tax Refund. Boy was that a nice call from my CPA.

Okay, I just talked to B&H again, trying to get updates on the K-1's shipping date. The rep said they will close
at 7:00pm 4/21, so they won't be able to ship out early preorders unless they receive shipments from RICOH
two days earlier than 4/21. And the rep told me that the next ship date will be 5/4/2016. Those who preordered
on Amazon may get their K-1s around 4/25 though, according to Amazon.

Hebrew slaves in ancient Egypt used blood from a slaughtered spring lamb to make a mark over their front doors so that God would "pass over" those houses in His tenth plague on the Egyptians in which He killed the first-born in each Egyptian household. Most Christians know this story from religion class (Catholics), Sunday school, or the 1956 Hollywood movie starring Charlton Heston and Yul Brynner.

I will be really disappointed if my Feb pre-order is delayed all the way until 5/4 if other pre-orders are shipping out on the 4/25. Anyway to confim Amazon's shipping date? I will cancel my B&H order and go through Amazon instead

Except that an order placed now may be so far down the line that it won't ship any earlier than the B&H order. I am still hoping B&H may surprise us earlier order people with a shipment this week. Probably a vain hope.
