No.

A preview on UK magazine site (I think Photography Monthly) comments that final firmware update is due in mid June so nothing likely to go until then. Have also heard a date of 15 June for the updated firmware from another source.

SRS Microsystems in London are quoting end of this month and possibly early July for delivery.

Had one or two on demo last Saturday. Too busy and packed to get too close to them though.

Re: K-7 delivery

I ordered from http://www.pentaxwebstore.com/product_detail.asp?T1=PTX+17811

who are sticking to their July 15th shipping date. They do not charge sales tax which helps. Camera promises to be a great upgrade from the K10d; just hope all the fuss makes it worthwhile. I was pleased with the K10's performance albeit slightly outdated now. But then again, planned obsolescence in this high-tech industry plagues us all. Now I understand why the lens is the heirloom, the camera body the soon-to-be-obsolete item, but the K-7 merges all the features I need.

RH was punked

The images he stole.. ur.. posted were from a blog that clearly said "this is NOT a production camera" in the titles. There is no credible report of K7 cameras for sale in HK.
