He will probably ship a K-01
I doubt that as the images explicitly show the K-1 FF camera
Though oddly enough, he doesn't ship to Canada :/

Someone should report the listing. Promising 6 days delivery on an item that has not yet been released is fraud.

I did about 24 hours ago, giving the same reason as you.

Good luck with that. I've reported a few items on eBay for various rule violations, including stealing copyrighted photos, and they've never done a thing so I gave up.

I have the same thought. Ricoh should know about this. Is there a way to report it? Not that I am into policing or anything but still.

Yes, I've tried to report before, and will not do it again. Ebay simply don't care at all.

I just got a e-mail from eBay telling me "Don't loose out on this". There are apparently 21 watchers but only 5 left. I seem to remember that was the original quantity available, so I don't think they sold any.

I reported something a couple of weeks ago but it did not good. A guy is using a picture and description of a major brand to sell and item but somewhere in the fine print says it isn't the brand in the photo.

This person has had 7 inquiries but nothing shows under questions about the item.

I clicked on the seller's name and it says "Based in Israel, buy-from-michelle has been an eBay member since Sep 13, 2004"

It isn't just cameras, there are dozens (hundreds?) of eBay sellers that claim to have products for sale when they don't have them now and never have had them. Almost always the asking price is well above MSRP, even if it is something that hasn't been produced for years. I suspect that these sellers will make a serious effort to locate the item if someone is actually willing to pay their price for it, but no such effort was undertaken before listing it. My wife has ordered out of print published materials several times only to eventually get an email from the seller apologizing for not being able to ship it. Sometimes the excuse is that the item was damaged, sometimes it was discovered to be not exactly as listed and sometimes they blame it on their supplier. Caveat emptor!

I have bought a lot of things from eBay and was only stung once (pre-PayPal era, so no relief there). Lesson learned: if a seller has any complaints, the red flag goes up. Thus, the complaint is checked into. No matter how good a seller is, especially dealers who sell a lot of items, there are bound to be a complaint here or there. If the seller has a lot of dealings and someone complains for something moronic, I ignore the complaint. On the other hand, if there are more than one complaints, especially if a theme is evident, like the item was broken when received or the seller never responded to problem, I mark them off and move on. If I recall, this seller has had something like a dozen complaints in the last 12 months. No thanks!!

Hypothetically, a person could go to the Ricoh website and contact customer service or sales or whomever, just to let them know. Hypothetically.

Or you could do what this person did. https://twitter.com/HarryBrautt/status/707943407650344960
