UK - SRSMicrosysrems delivery

Just spoken to SRS who say delivery will be between 10th to 20th April.

He also said that their first drop fron Ricoh WILL satisfy all their pre orders!!!

He recons 10th at Ricoh Europe, 15th at SRS then out from there.

Great news.

Great news indeed! I pre-ordered from SRS within hours of being able to do so.

Were the two new FF lenses discussed? (That is, 15-30mm and 28-105mm).

As stated by a Ricoh rep reported somewhere in this forum, the first countries served will be the ones with the highest preordering scores.

As far as reported in different threads here, only RI UK did ORGANISE and OPTIMIZE the pre-ordering process by advertising the K-1 roadshow in the whole country as early as on announcement following days...

I've just received this from Doug at SRS:

Yes it does seem likely that the bodies will be first to appear, and we would certainly endeavour to ship those first.

We will most likely be in contact with people via email to see what their preference is.

*body only

Developed as the flagship model of the acclaimed PENTAX K series of digital SLR cameras, this new model features a large CMOS image sensor, equal in size to the full image area of 35mm film, to deliver super-high-resolution images required for the artistic work of photo enthusiasts and professionals.

....

Availability: Pre order. Shipped from Apr 30, 2016
Could be worse though, aside from a banner the German and Scandinavian sites do not even mention the K-1.

Home - RICOH IMAGING - European Hub Site -> stores
RICOH PENTAX - Webbutik Sverige
Aside from a banner no mention of K-1 in "nya produkter" or under the "kameror" part of the ricoh-store
Same for Denmark and Norway.

One theory is that people who pre-ordered at the first chance will get their's earlier than that, because their cameras have already been planned for.

And that April 30th is the date for new pre-orders made now, because they will involve extra cameras beyond those already planned for.

Could be, but I looked into it because of the remark of Shanti.

And we have seen actual release delays in the past.
