Overwhelming response for K1 upgrade

I was just was getting ready to send in my K1 for the upgrade. But maybe I will wait a bit longer since they are "overwhelmed" with the number of people asking for the upgrade. It has been a bit difficult to fit in the upgrade in between a number of short trips I am taking this summer and some of the pictures I plan to take are ones I want to do with my K1.

I guess I am a bit surprised the response has been more than Ricoh expected.    Good to hear though.

From the Ricoh Website:

PENTAX K-1 Upgrade Service

Therefore, in order to comply with the estimated 7-10 business day turnaround time, we ask that you do not send in your cameras at this time.
