I am confused. I have seen, in a number of different threads, posts stating that the K3iii is dearer than the K1ii. Except when specials were on (and I suspect the Ted's Cameras mentioned here is a special) I have always found that here in Australia at least, the K1 II has always been dearer than the K3 iii (as shown by the post by @RobA).

A check on the B&H site in the US just now shows the K1 ii body (silver) at $2099 is dearer than the K3 iii at $1996 (although there is a k1 ii marked down from $1996 to $1796, which further confuses the issue).
Do the relative prices of K1 ii vs K3 iii differ from country to country??
At the moment, if you buy directly from Ricoh Imaging USA, the K-1 ii and the K-3 iii are the same price. At launch of the K-3 iii, there was a long-running special on the K-1 ii that was still in effect and had the K-1 ii at US$1799.95 vs. US$1999.95 for the K-3 iii. Adorama and B&H are still pricing the K-1 ii there. B&H still seems to have some silver editions for the K-1 ii, which comes with the matching battery grip and an additional D-LI90 battery.
