I also received an email today. My delivery date is a little later than yours, but still better than January.


Estimated arrival date: November 23 2009 - December 01 2009
Booyah! Got my email as well! My estimate is "November 16-November 17" whatever that means... At least they are updating us.

Good news... my order shows a shipping date as follows

Shipping estimate:November 16, 2009
" We are preparing these items for shipment and this portion of your order cannot be canceled or changed"

So as someone said on this thread, they are shipping much sooner than December. Go Amazon.

If anyone doesn't want their plastic mount 55-300mm, I'll take it for the price difference!

battery issues

Hey all, So i received my k-x on friday. It works wonderfully with the included lithium batteries however it barely works with my jwin rechargeable nimh's. I was just wondering if anyone else from this amazon batch was having any troubles. I ordered some eneloops because i heard they usually work well with the k-x.. so I'll update later.

Also:
I would like to add that I LOVE my k-x. It takes amazing photographs and both lenses are phenomenal. I'm very happy with ordering this kit.. I'm just hoping I can use rechargeable batteries with it as well. However, I'm glad it does indeed work with lithium batteries. If anything I'll just stock up on them.

This thread is interesting! love seeing all the new members with Nov 2009 join dates, welcome to the club. I have never been much of an early adopter myself, but the Kx is worth every (almost) MSRP penny in my book. Glad to see amazon shipping everyone their orders!

I am also not much of an early adopter. But after looking at K-x and amazon deal, I couldn't resist. My Nikon DSLR was stolen and after a long gap started looking for a new DSLR. With Kx and Amazon deal everything fell in place.

Credit to Amazon

Even though it has already been mentioned, I wanted to give credit to Amazon for shipping 2nd day air when I had requested the free shipping. I guess they felt like we had waited long enough.

Patients is a virtue...but...not one of mine!

Hi You All,

Just sitting here not so patiently waiting the arrival of my K-x...green with envy toward those who already received theirs LOL...only kidding...it left at 8:45 this morning and is on the USP truck heading for my house as I write this email. Just wish they would deliver it soon...because it is a beautiful warm Fall day and my trigger finger is getting itchy

Wishing You a Picture Perfect Day,

Jan
