AFAIK, Sony has currently problems to deliver as many 16MP CMOS sensors as needed (I've read it somewhere).

Anyway, in Germany, there is still some stock left but it may be selling out as we speak. My local retail store is out of stock now, had the K-5 in stock earlier.

I say it because the D7000, which has a very similiar sensor but went on sale a bit earlier, is out of stock everywhere in Germany now.

Is it really the same sensor? But it's probably from the same factory line anyway.

Sorry, I normally say "very similiar".

Could all the "K-5 praise"threads be put on hold?

So depressing to read "I giot my K-5 and I love it" while they are not yet available for you...

It depends what you'd want to pay for it.
Most "normal" low prices are around € 1180, if you are willing to pay a premium, you can get one now.

In stock in the Netherlands today (06-10-2010):
Pentax K 5 Body [14747] - €1228,99 » Guusverschuren.nl @ € 1228.99
Pentax K5 body 16,3 MP CMOS, Full-HD-Video - t-online.nlhop @ € 1269
PENTAX K 5 BODY bij Camera.nl | camera.nl @ € 1399

Or order it here (in stock as well, 5 minus one for me!!) for € 1019 @ Pentax K-5 Body

- Bert

I'm expecting to pick up my K-5 this wednesday/thursday. If all goes well, of course, because in The Netherlands the demand is certainly higher than the availability.

BTW: I bought it at EUR 1065 (body only). But this is because we organized a group purchase at the same shop.

Tuleeko näitä K-5 enään ollenkaan, kun ei ole kuulunut mitään pitkään aikaan.

Suomeenkin on tullut 2 kpl viimmeviikolla eikä senjälkeen ole tapahtunut mitään.
Onko joku selvittänyt todellista tilaa mikä kiikastaa.
Itse kyselin maahantuojalta eipä viitsi edes vastata.
Edellinen maahantuoja auliisti neuvvoi ja vastasi kysymyksiin tämä nykyinen on
kaiken yläpuolella.

No, the 18-135 is not available at this moment.

BTW: you should have registered at Pentaxian.nl. It surprises me that you are not a member yet or you would've known

That is strange. Here in Stockholm they are now in stock in at least one shop. I am sure they will run out in a day or two again though, usually big shortage initially.

Topshot:iin tuli enemmän kuin 2 viime viikolla. Ja tällä viikolla on tullut lisää. Ainakin nettisivujen mukaan niillä on runkoa, 18-55 kittiä ja 18-55+50-200 tuplakittiä kaikkia hyllyssä.

Did you check verkkokauppa only ? Topshot has got more than 2 K-5s. They currentlly have some K-5s, so go there and buy one.

never heard of it before... I know the 18-135 is not avaialble yet and the rumored release date of nov 26th makes it very unlikely to appear in the low countries before 2010 ends...

Ilo uutinen tuli minulle. Ainakin yksi K-5 on tullut tänään Verkkokauppa. com

Kyselin sieltä muita asioita, niin sanovat että teillehän on lähdössä lähetys.

Olen listalla tällähetkellä ykkönen joten se on se K-5 nytten minulle.
Visallinen ilmoitus tulee ehkä illalla, kun postittavat lähetyksen.

Kiva, kiva, kiva!
Kiitos kaikille yhteisän jäsenille, neuvvoista ja lohdutuksista aurinko alkoi taas paistamaan.
