If you shop Walmart Site-to-store (free shipping to your closest WM) then you should be able to return items to that same store if you have a problem.

So I happen to work with Andy, The UPS Whiteboard Guy. So I thought I'd get him in on the unboxing action... since it was an extra special delivery.

So my K-7 is out for delivery (woo hoo). My question of the day:

What will be the first lens you put on your new body?

Mine will likely be my 31mm. How about you?

Just got this email from Amazon:

Hello,

Looking into your order, I see that "Pentax K-7 14.6 MP Digital SLR with Shake Reduction and 720p HD Video (Body Only)" is back-ordered. I'm sorry about this delay--we certainly didn't expect that this would happen.

I want to make sure your order gets to you faster once we have stock. To help make up for the delay, I will refund the shipping charges as and when the order ships.

As soon as we receive more stock, we'll ship your order and send you an e-mail to let you know.

Just checked 4 previous shipping confirmation e-mails from Amazon (for different products), and all came later in the evening.

1) 6:50 PM
2) 9:01 PM
3) 9:10 PM
4) 10: 05 PM

All I'm saying is that there is still hope that our cameras will ship out today, and we just haven't received confirmation e-mails yet.

Fingers crossed,
Rye

Also, my CC hasn't been charged yet. even if it isn't going to ship today, I'd like to understand what has/is happening.

I'm in the same boat as you.
I sent Amazon an email asking why... but haven't gotten a response. I'm going to be frustrated if ordering early sets me back a few days.

But I will say the last time I got an email from Amazon saying that my order was about to be shipped, it showed up 15 minutes later. Apparently it was drop-shipped from the manufacture and Amazon didn't get the notification until the product had already been delivered. Fingers crossed that the K-7 shows up tomorrow.

No more retailers in D/FW. Cooters Village camera was one of the last, and I spoke with them about a month ago and they are selling off existing inventory. They recommended a few other stores in the Metroplex, but I kept running into walls.

Wolf was the only other alternative, and to your point... that seems to be a dead end too.

People who have pre-ordered K7 from Adorama

Both in-store and online.

The only problem I've found was not honoring a mis-priced K20 for about $250 through Amazon. I ordered it as soon as I saw it, but I got an auto-cancellation email saying they couldn't honor that price. But that was more of a glitch than bad service.

I'd use them again... but I ordered directly from Amazon this time (because I now have Amazon Prime).

Just checked, and I've got the same e-mail!

This gives me time to assess the Samsung announcement on the 7th, but I'm really excited for this camera to finally arrive.

I really need a confirmation e-mail from Amazon today.
So that I get my camera tomorrow.
So that I can take it on vacation Thursday morning.

Amazon has about 3 hours and 21 minutes to deliver a smile... I'm counting on you Amazon.
