DA* Lenses released August 15

at least according to

...also for those interested it looks like Samys has it on pre-order for $749. I personally have never ordered there but I've heard good things.

Let's hope this holds true! I am #2 in queue for the 50-135 and #4 for the 16-50 but Pentax Scandinavia can't (yet) say how many will arrive in Sweden in the initial delivery. With a little luck I can have them for my trip to Denmark in week 35 where I'm hoping to meet up with other Pentaxians in Copenhagen!

I wouldn't count on it. When Amazon doesn't know, they just guess. (I've had a similar situation with books and movies.)

I have heard from Pentax UK after first being told by a retailer and then by the UK importer... they are not expecting the DA* zooms until the end of August, and don't expect them to be on shelves until end of August or early September. This is coming from Pentax themselves who presumably know as much as anyone (which doesn't mean much )

I posted this a couple of times already but no-one seems to have noticed... of course Pentax haven't helped by not telling anyone and only confirming it to me a week after I asked... maybe I should just make a big announcement thread
