Earlier orders would have been a $316.95 - most haven't received them (including myself, who ordered within an hour of this thread starting), and since it wasn't lowered to that price for a couple of weeks I'm pretty sure there is a big line ahead of the $314 buyers!

My window starts tomorrow. I'm hoping to see some notices here, sooner rather than later, that those of us who got in early are getting orders!

Me too! Part of me wonders if Pentax didn't have amazon hold a bunch of orders for some finance/book keeping reason (it is the day after the middle of the month afterall). I know it is a stretch, but you never know!

As big as Amazon is, unless there are 1000's of orders for this, I would say just about anything other than some Amazon buyer (or algorithm these days) doing what they normally do is a stretch. I worked in logistics for a while and it was beneficial to fill an order as quickly as you had stock. Holding onto goods increases your liability. Though, I agree that it would be cool if they were just holding onto orders until tomorrow and then letting the flood gates open.

Just ordered mine, then realized it's going to be a 1-2 month wait. No point in having used the free two-day "Prime" shipping, then.

Or 399 if you will take the black version:
Amazon.com: Pentax K-01 16MP APS-C CMOS Compact System Camera Kit with DA 40mm Lens (Black): Electronics

Maybe Amazon is just trying to stop the huge wave (I assume) of buyers. In the other thread, someone that ordered, but had the ship window, just got a delivery confirmation.

Don't misquote me! Not a notification, but a change from the expected span of delivery dates to an exact date (of next tuesday) in my amazon orders page (I paid $3.99 for overnight...prime member) - meaning it'll likely be shipped on monday.

Or another avenue is to buy the body only from Adorama for $399 shipped.
