Took me a week to get around to gathering my newly extended family together for an updated portrait:

oops, uncle Battery Grip for the K-5 forgot to show up. Oh well, he's always drunk anyways.

Just to give some hope to the people that are still waiting... I pre-ordered on amazon late April. Seeing no movement, and seeing B&H and adorama with stock I pre-order on Adorama. Still no shipping after a fews days, I canceled both and ordered at focus camera telling me in stock shipping before the end of the week. On friday nothing was shipped and When I called they told me they are waiting for next shipment...

I called a random local dealer in San Francisco ( I live close ), he had one in stock, I ordered with overnight shipping without many hopes. It was last Friday. And Today I'm at work and the K-1 is waiting at the Fedex office

Try one of your local dealer, or even one in a different city.

Have heart, my shipment (destination Qatar) finally made it to Dubai (an hour away) and is now being sent back to BH, because Qatar Air does not allow Lithium batteries to be shipped by Air... I have NO idea when I will see my K1.
Oh wow, THAT sucks!
I hope you'll find a way.

I went into the order thinking they were back ordered, so I said screw it a month to save up... I ordered from adorama yesterday and it shipped today. I should get it by the end the week... (In Kevin hart's words) nooooooooooo nooooo nooo I wasn't ready.

Still waiting for the price to drop and the initial bugs to get worked out.

No bugs.

Price drop not likely.

Probably not any time soon then, Racer.

I patiently waited while the bugs were worked out and the price dropped on the K5.

I can patiently wait for the same with this camera.

Pentax cameras have historically dropped drastically in the past. I think that's because they were very quick to release new versions of apsc cameras. It took pentax from it's first camera until now (except a little known prototype) to make a full frame camera available to the public. At times I wonder why they are still in business. The question is, how frequently are they going to release a new full frame camera? Once a year? Once every 5 years? The K-1 price will drop when it is replaced with another full frame camera. Right now, they are ridiculously behind in the selection of various modern digital lenses as compared to other manufacturers. My first dslr was the k-x, which I loved, but a lack of affordable lenses was a huge problem. After shooting with the k-5 for 6 months, I had enough. Lens selection, the lack of micro contrast in raw files and lack in various features found in Nikon cameras caused me to sell most of my pentax equipment and go Nikon. Never looked back since. A Nikon camera released today can be had for half the price in 2 or 3 years.
