first shipments arrived to shops this week, where they managed to fulfill pre-orders and have some stock left, it should be in stock.
Looks like In Stock here http://www.srsmicrosystems.co.uk/cameras/interchangable-lens-cameras/pentax-dslr-cameras/pentax-k-1-camera-body.html

Why not all ILC manufacturers?

grcolts: I don't want it as it does not come in my camera mount. :)

@ThatCamFan you're right about him and I never go for information to his site. I just wanted to demonstrate how untrue the original statement was even from a completely non-Pentax side

@dansclic
even Pentax hater Ken Rockwell knows better about the lens than you :)

Ilford Labs also do BW development and printing from both film and digital on Ilford paper. Great quality and constant neutral tone. Much recommended

Digitalis32: Nikon isn't the KING anymore, what will I buy to fulfill my desire for flat, contrastless, push-the-deep-shadows-up-to-the-midtone High DR images?

I wouldn't want to take photos with the lens cap on with this camera!

What am I supposed to do? Switch to Pentax? They don't have any professional full format lenses, all they have are slow f/2.8 rebadged tamron zoom lenses and archaic screw drive AF lenses with optics designed in the 1980s.

15-30 = rebadged Tamron (one of the best wide angle zooms ever)
24-70 = rebadged Tamron (one of the best standard zooms on the market)
70-200/2.8 = Pentax original, having seen some test pics, one of the best long range zooms ever
150-450 = Pentax original, very good lens

"But after i have discovered what is going on at Pentax i was right to quit and buy from another brand."
You haven't quit, you're still here. Commenting solely on Pentax related articles. Asperger?

Jorge, when somebody with a widely read blog says that 'only a feeble Aspergian would buy this camera' after reading specs only it's no more a personal opinion but a deliberate anti-marketing step.
This is my last comment to you. Please, go searching for peace with your Nikon equipment, I can see from your pics that it serves you well, just like K-1 will serve me and thousands of others.

I am giving you fault because you call it an interesting article. It is not even an article.
Jorge, you sad that you had a defective lens from Pentax before and that's where your attitude comes from. Are you saying that other manufacturers never make defective lenses so you felt the need to join dpreview again when Pentax launched new camera and write 70+ comments basically saying that Pentax cannot make cameras? And after that you have the guts to say that it's us Pentax users who are starting flame war? Please, make this reply (if you plan any) your last comment here. Thank you

This is not an interesting article but a mega-biased and ill-informed bulshit from Ken. He'd written things that could be called an informed opinion before but this is pure dismissive BS, sorry. And just proves the reason why you are here again.

JustDavid: @Jorge, how come you focus all your comments on the Pentax articles? You don't like or use the brand, yet, you've spent three days now 'moderating the user's enthusiasm' (which starts to look a lot more like trolling now). Are the Canon or other announcements not worth your attention? Or do you really have an agenda?

@lokiminion except Jorge is anti Pentax. He had been here before under different username and got banned

Konstantin Mineev: It may be the time for announcement of the new FF long anticipated camera should be better in the Summer (green grass, blue sky, etc.)?
Сolors in these samples look very dull and depressing and skin color is too cold in the daylight.

@Konstantin here is a nice sample of the K-1 pixel shift from Ricoh http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/products/k-1/ex/img/ex-pic05_on.jpg

Mike99999: Some observations (disclaimer: I hate Ricoh with a passion).

1. Looks like a very nice body! And very fairly priced. And some of those primes (200/2.8 and 300/4 are really cheap!) Sony lighting a fire under every DSLRs ass has resulted in some nice affordable bodies, like the Nikon D750, and now this Pentax.

2. Sony's 36 mpix sensor seems to be a budget sensor now. I expect it to be popping up everywhere then... e.g. D620, A7III, etc...

@Jorge I am a journalist and that means curiosity by nature. But really, this is my last reply here.

jonny1976: good job pentax...553 comments, compared to 170 of canon 80d....clearly hit some buttons and souls...i suspect when both dxo rating and the still images with pixel shift technology will come out, many son ikon users will make harakiri...

thank @Jorge Bayonas :)

@Jorge I respect everyone's preferences. And I admit that your pictures on Flickr are pretty impressive. But you are the first person I know who had joined here on the day of launch of a camera to waste 10 hours and 40 comments to tell the fans of the camera that it's not as good as they dream.

@Jorge it is not silly. People don't usually open accounts to be able to comment on announcements of a camera that they're not interested in. Statistically taken, it is more likely that such person has an agenda or a marketing mission. You seem to assume a role of some gatekeeper for people who feel that K-1 is the better tool for them. Thus my question.
As to why I am here and have been for over 10 years is that I am a photographer and a camera user and I enjoy quite a lot of useful content on this site. As for this particular article, I am Pentax user and I am interested in the camera. Unlike you

@jorge so that's why you joined dpreview (on the day of K-1 launch) to save the world from Pentaxians who are happy about their new camera? Can you save it from hunger and diseases too?
