Looks like mine won't be made for another 53 years!

I double checked by uploading directly from camera, 'cos this is what it said when I uploaded a photo via the computer. Have tried different pics and all give that date but different (appropriate) shutter counts. Will try a different card at some stage and see if that changes things. Any other ideas?.

Delivered 5 May.

K-1 mfg date-13 April 2016. Picked up 5/9. Already have a couple hundred shutter clicks as I've been testing out lenses (fine focus adjustments) and functions (mostly catch in focus, focus peaking and plain old manual focus with no aid). Love it so far. Taking it out for its maiden sail tomorrow.

This is odd. Perhaps the camera is a development piece that should not have been released for sale.

Try taking pictures of lottery numbers. If it's from the future, maybe it will reveal the winning numbers for you .

Well, at least in this thread, mine seems to be the oldest one.

2nd of March 2016
Delivered to my local store in Switzerland on the 10th of May. I'm sure it's happy to be out of it's box!


Edit, Looking at the Database I've got no clue how these serial numbers got assigned.. Shouldn't lower = older? I can't seem to find a pattern.
