There is one waiting for me at my local store so I have to decide this week if I will take it or not. Do I really need it, will it work well with my FA and mf glass so I can put off lens purchases, should I use the money for other things?
I put my name on the list back in Oct so I was not expecting to have to decide so quickly. I fear if I pass now, they will be in short supply for a long while.

What is this word "need" that you mention; and what does it have to with anything?

Today marks the one week anniversary of owning mine

@ skibanff - YES you need one!! I really feel the 645D is a huge leap forward and you'll be kicking yourself if you let the opportunity pass.

I tried listing one of my kidney's on ebay but they wouldn't allow it. Looks like I'll have to start buying lottery tickets.

Now I have two tracking numbers. The camera shipped yesterday, but the lens ships separately today.

I am hearing that Dec 20th is the date Acephoto should be getting them by. I called Pentax Webstore and they said Jan 15th is when the next shipment will go out.

Santa do you hear me? I want mine next week please

Does anyone else find it trifling odd that the first wave of cameras was delivered in Canada and Oz almost a month ago, and they are only now coming to the US?
