I wrote Samys and told them to have Fedex hold it for pickup, otherwise it'll be going back to them. The ball is in their court.
I can certainly understand why Samy's would require a signature. I'm less certain I understand the "no reroute" requirement. If I pick the package up, I am assuming FedEx is going to require photo ID anyway. The regular FedEx depot is close to work but this is coming FedEx home delivery, and their depot is way out on the other side of town.

Incidentally, today is the last day for the rebate at Samy's, although the price after rebate is now up to $299.

Kudos to Samys, I heard back from them in less than an hour. Fedex will hold it for me to pick up.

Well, I got it.

Went to test it out, make sure everything was working. On a lark I brought it upstairs to the wife and had her take a photo of me. I wanted to see what her initial reaction was to the camera, style and design wise. End result: "I hate this camera. The buttons are all in the wrong place."

*sigh*

So I guess I own a K-S1 now. Can't be too unhappy though, for $200 it's a darn nice camera.

My wife, the erstwhile recipient of the camera that's taking her photo...

I guess it's back to kitchen utensils for Christmas but I'm sure you will enjoy your new camera. Got mine delivered on Saturday. The vacation hold worked to get my package on the FedEx truck when I would be home.

This reminds me of that old Simpsons episode where Homer bought Marge a bowling ball for her birthday.
