RED Kx - Ordered 10/13 arrived 12/8

Through Amazon I ordered the RED Kx. Signed up with PENTAX to let me know when they would be available via email, and still haven't gotten that email.

Looks light red, not a dark red, like the red around the SR on the front.

Played with the HDR on tripod (essential), two shots on setting 2


Simple editor used to resize to 1024 wide, no other software adjustments

BTW:Kx communicated perfectly with all 7 of my Sigma lens.

Weren't the red and navy blue cameras delayed a few weeks after the black and white ones? Strange that they didn't email...

Everyone knows you're supposed to take pics of the gear before showing pics from the gear!

Why try to get a Nikon lens when the pentax equivalents are just as good and plentiful? No need to worry about things falling off... (I assume you meant the manual focus nikkors)

And if anyone got a pic of the reddy with a normal looking lens (like DA 10-17, Tamron 28-75, takumar 50mm, etc) would be appreciated... all pics I've seen of it is of the kitlens
