Hi all,

I've just been notified that our delivery of Pentax K-1's, D-BG6 grips, 15-30mm and 28-105mm lenses has left the warehouse and is on the way to us.

We realistically are expecting them to arrive on Wednesday, but there is a small chance they might arrive tomorrow.

I'll post on here as soon as they arrive!

Great news Chris.
Do you know how many you're receiving?
I preordered on Day 1, what are my chances?

I've got enough stock for everyone who has preordered so don't worry.

I might have a few spare for anyone thinking of taking the plunge. I'll update here as soon as I know!

No, I expect a load of amazing, incredible, inspirational fast action AF tracked shots, all with high ISO, extreme small DOF, pixel-shifted, astrotraced and HDR

Not for me (fast becoming a mirrorless addict, I'm afraid) but I'm very pleased and hope the deep-pocketed, early adopters are thrilled with the camera and, more importantly, with it's files.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Don't joke. I sometimes shoot alongside a Nikon 810 user. Outside, at night, I asked him what ISO he had chosen. Blank stare! Discovered that he sees no reason to stray beyond Fully Auto and JPGs.
