I pre-ordered mine at Adorama last night and received a follow up email stating that the anticipated shipping date would be 4/11/2018.

They seem to be doing this deal on many Pentax bodies on a semi regular basis. I get the impression most people don’t buy them otherwise.
Now if either b&h or Adorama wanted to get ahead of the other they should offer the 3 year extended warranty free as an option instead of the grip.

I actually will have to wait until the last minute to order mine because I want the extended warranty on such an expensive camera and it starts from date of purchase, not date of delivery in several months. I think the regular warranty works the same so everyone will be getting a 10 month warranty instead when they preorder
Unless maybe they don’t bill it until it ships. Something worth checking on.

You can check with Square Trade but in the past they would adjust the start date to the date it ships if you ask them to.

Too bad I wouldn't get a free grip if I send mine in for the upgrade. I am tempted to do it anyway in case it really gives better images for astrophotography and if video will really have a big difference, again for astrophotography (this time for planetary/lunar).

Thought you might find this interesting and like to pass it on to other K-1 Owners.
Ricoh will let Pentax K-1 owners update their cameras to a Mark II for $550/450/?500: Digital Photography Review

Interesting. I needed a new battery anyway. SWMBO said go for it.

Ordered. Now the wait. Hopefully CC not billed until shipped. I did order it by clicking the link here.

I pre-ordered but without clicking the link here I think (I loaded it into my wish list, then later added it I think). Does that help the forum at all? oops. I could probably cancel and start over.

No, I don't think we'd get credit for that.

In any case, I won't be able to check until the order ships, so please PM me the order number at that time. Thanks!

I also had pre-ordered from B&H with the grip before seeing that Pentax Forums could get credit. I will also need to need to send my order number to Adam when it ships.
