Caribe, I'm still waiting for my back ordered accessories....it is pushing two week since I ordered the (now infamous) 696 bundle from ADORAMA and yet no further information from them other than they expect to fulfill it at some time in the future...….I'll wait two more days making it a full two weeks and report back to this thread....let me know what they tell you as I think we as a group should keep them consistent on how we, as customers are handled.
I ordered the 24th. I will let you know.

I still have not had a chance to call about my bundle due to family issues I hope I can today or tomorrow. I'll report back when I do.

Yes the black KP is still in backordered. According to their website at least.

Adorama now lists the WR lens as coming soon, so hopefully the extras packages will ship when those arrive.

At the rate you shoot, I suspect that the only thing that might stop your KP from 10 to 20 years of service would be battery replacement since Li-Ion batteries have a certain life expectancy.
That would be great, since I turn 71 this month {and figure that at sometime photography will just be something I think of}

Well, I got this email from Adorama today. The pricing of Pentax products I see is back to normal; they couldn't do better than sell out on Black Friday - Cyber Monday, so if Pentax wasn't a "best seller" Adorama is at least partially at fault.

I called Adorama up and the person on the phone said that they'd be shipping it within the next 2 days no charge to me. Let's see how this goes.

Amy, that's encouraging.....I would hope so...considering I've had my KP for over a week (ordered on 11/22), it would be nice to receive the bundle and close the file on this. Let's see what happens in the next few days.

Yesterday Adorama shipped the free accessories (bag, 18-55, strap). Later during the afternoon they answered my email explaining that Adorama would probably send the rest of my order today. I checked my account and the order changed from "backordered" to "in process". I'm guessing they will send the KP and a 20-40mm today. My ETA should be Thursday or Friday. Lets see how it goes

I just spoke to customer service at Adorama and they told me my accessory bundle is still on "back order"--wow what a sh*t show over there....it's a miracle I got the camera (that is a joy to use--a worthy successor to the K-3 series in many ways).

So the free accessories should arrive home today. And I already have a tracking number for the silver KP that will probably arrive on Thursday. They did not send the 20-40mm.

Not only did they ship the wrong accessories, but the lens is also on backorder for me. Not once in my call did they imply that the lens was on backorder. I'll have to call them again.

They shipped the tiny ugly lowepro bag with the cleaning kit instead of the Pentax bag and neck strap.

So Caribe did you get your kit or did you end up like ZombieArmy (with wrong accessories bundle) or you're in the Adorama 'back order' zone like me?
