Thanks! Mine was Jan 5th, but had a delivery window from Jan 30th to Feb 19th, which they missed.Looks like I might still have a shot at the brick.

If you keep it, it would be good to post the serial# and manufacture date of the camera body on the PF camera database to track the end of the production run.

That's why you should have kids....or, even better, cats....since getting my K-01, these furry family members have been the most patient test subjects:



I love the cat picture. Pretty funny.

I got the same email. Amazon wants me to "approve" waiting beyond March 23 Or they'll cancel my order.
I ordered on Jan 13 with a window of 1/29-2/22. Not looking good.

I ordered on January 9th.
Just called Amazon a few minutes ago and they told me it will be shipped by February 28th just like they promised.
Honestly, I am not convinced, Amazon rep sounded quite clueless and blamed it all on product vendor.

I just screwed into my K-01 my old 3.5 28mm Asahi Pentax lens via the K-mount adapter. The lens just turned 41 years old. On my ES it was very sharp, bought the K-01 hoping it'd be the same. Going on a trip to SoCal and will use this setup as my carry around camera. Frankly I am astounded how nice my ancient lens works on this new Pentax. That green button is magic! I almost feel like I'm carrying around my old K1000. Just great! I'll post pics when I return.

I ordered the $315 yellow K-01 from Amazon on January 13 with a delivery window ending 2/22. They informed me yesterday they could not meet this and could give me no estimate on a future delivery date. I called today and the representative said they still could not give me an estimated date or even assure me that they would ever fulfill the order The rep tried the ol' bait and switch to an affiliate storefront at a higher price. I pointed out Amazon was taking orders on white K-01's and should sell me whichever one became available first at the $315 price.After consulting with someone else I was offered the white one for $315 if I canceled the original order. Now I have a delivery window of 3/12-3/21 but my "order date" is still 1/13 so hopefully I'm at the front of the line. I shoulda bought a K-30 and may yet before this is all over.Good luck if you are still waiting on a yellow K-01.

One good thing - in the time you have waited the price of the K-30 has decreased........
