Anyone else miss out on the $249 K-01 bodies? There's still hope!
Posted By: dtrego, 04-29-2013, 05:49 PM

It looks like Adorama has them again. Yellow only, far as I could tell. I ordered one and got a confirmation email, so hopefully it's not a cruel hoax or website error...

Adorama just cancelled my order. Not in dire need of the yellow body but I will keep my eyes open for future deals.

Well, I missed out on the cheap yellow one, but I just put in an order for a white one, $299. whew, that was close! (well, I guess I shouldn't be comfortable until it's delivered).

Adorama. Was there last night from the link in the OP. That is No longer avail either. I'm worried now that new mfg supplies are exhausted I may be getting a return from someone Adorama had on the shelf.

Just place yet another order for this camera at the new price. I also sent them email that they should re-adjust the price to $249 for my order since I ordered it less than a week ago for that price only to have it listed as being on back-order and then cancelled. I was willing to wait till it came back in stock but was not given that option. Now it seems to be available again but at a higher price. I hope this camera truly is back in stock and that they can do right by customer (me).

Helen was able to get back to me very quickly and has readjusted the price for my order which is a great. Now I just have to wait and see if they will actually ship the camera out or if I will once again be stuck with a cancelled order. Thanks to everyone in this thread.

Received my yellow K-01 today, updated the firmware and tried out a couple lenses. Everything seems great. Once again thanks to everyone!
