Yellow to black for $12

Well no yellow K-01 for me. Today was the day Amazon had promised me a tracking number with my shipped camera. Instead I got an email saying no camera was coming until at least March and I needed to decide if I wanted to cancel.

I got on chat with Amazon and they strongly hinted no camera would be coming. After lots of discussion they transferred my order to the black version and applied a $30 credit. Result is I will receive a black one for $328 - $12 more than the original yellow price.

Im bummed I wont have a bright yellow conversation started but happy that I am getting a good deal on a great camera lens combination. Hopefully I will get a tracking number today.

For anyone else waiting on a yellow one ordered back in January I suggest you get with customer service ASAP. As of this minute Amazon has 9 black body/lens combos in stock and I got the feeling there would not be any more coming.

Good Luck!
