Email from Adorama today (5/2) :

Thank you for your inquiry on the status of your backorder.
Please be advised that we do not have live inventory on where you are from the waiting list.

Unfortunately, the manufacturer is not providing us with an ETA of when to expect this item, in turn, we cannot provide our customers with an ETA.
When an item is out of stock, we try to accommodate the customer as best we can.

They gave me lots of options....wait, get another camera, or cancel.

I am waiting (and debating B&H).....

My order was February 17th so I think that was first or second day.

Curious how you know that since the poster above says B&H told him they have nothing in stock and are expecting delivery this coming week. Did you talk to someone at B&H?
Live chat was closed by the time I contacted B&H, so I sent an email instead. I got below reply:
>> Unfortunately the item you purchased is still on backorder. We will contact the manufacturer for an update of when we expect to have this item in stock. As soon as we receive a response from them, typically within 2-3 days, we will forward this information to you via email.

I then asked them to cancel my order for K-1, but ship me 15-30 and 28-105 instead of waiting for K-1 and ship altogether.

BTW, it's also out of stock in Hong Kong. K-1 is selling like hotcakes but the supply is very limited. It's still on backorder but I've placed mine today. Hopefully I will get it within this week.

I wonder why B&H still shows their customer service as closed.

In a Macro sense the tight supply and quotes such as "deeply backordered" are pleasing and good.

On a micro level - Damn and Blast!!

Because they got fed up with K-1 ship date inquiries? Just kidding

I got a Facebook message from Ricoh saying that B&H should be sending out K-1 orders beginning this week.
Not sure what that means, as "this week" can be anything between today and Friday.

Just called B&H and the rep told me almost the same thing on your email.
The rep said they are expecting to receive the stock this week and send out
order as soon as they can, probably by the end of this week.
BTW, my order is placed on 2/17/2016.

Glad to hear things are moving on the B&H/Adorama front. I hope you folks have your cameras soon!

I wish I'd pre-ordered through them. Amazon is quiet as a mouse. I'm sure I won't know anything until I get an email saying the camera is on its way. I don't know whether or not it would be better to cancel my pre-order and go with B&H or just stay with it. I only ordered from Amazon because I had a gift card balance. (Order was made on March 13).

That is good to hear. The last email I got from them (yesterday) said "manufacturer will start shipping this item 15th of may" I really hope to get it sooner! For no practical reason. except then i can stop reading these threads.

I received the same email from B&H that everyone else did so I was curious about the delivery. I asked if the warehouse was closed during Passover and I got just got a response saying that "YES"The warehouse was closed. That explains why the shipment is coming in later this week.
