Received the following news:

“ We have been advised that the pre-orders will be shipped from today onwards.”

Tracking number to follow early next week !
Crossing my fingers that that will include mine as well...

Any chance that it is coming to Scandinavia as well next week?

at least they did not want to send it to another address because it might just be after 19 May that it arrives (I had indicated that I'm leaving May 19). So I'm guessing that they will be sent this Monday.
Whether that includes Scandinavia will probably depend on the distribution channels, but my guess is that it would be likely.

They must really have misjudged demand. Or perhaps they haven't prioritised certain countries. The swedish Ricoh website is a bit of a graveyard.

It is very quite both here and from Ricoh. We know that Ricoh had to delay the release of K-3 III because of parts availability. Can this be the reason for this delay in Europe and Scandinavia? The production is limited or has stopped?

You might well have a point. I'd like to think it is selling too well though
And according to some reports, it is the best selling camera of April

I have just received the Black Premium Kit in the Netherlands. Both premium kits are in stock. The black and silver body only K3III's are not in stock. That is at CameraNu. One of the biggest photography stores in the country.

Congratulations!
Is CameraNu similar to Kamera Express? I just looked up their website and found a K-lens I didn't know: the Thingyfy Pinhole Pro X. Anyone used this lens?

That's really good... but are prices hiked up accordingly?
Looks to be 10-11 % more in Norway than in Germany. ~€2,200 for body only and €2,550 for the premium kit. (That would be US$2,700 and $3,100 respectively, taxes included.)

...whenever it becomes available, that is.
