It's the DA & DA* zooms that are crazy expensive compared to the US.
Amen. Twice the price sometimes, and totally over the top. Sigma and Tamron prices are often reasonably comparable though across their whole range, which makes the Pentax pricing disparity a real puzzle.

About time too!
Be interesting to see how long before shops actually start getting stock.
Last week CRK was still saying middle of the month at the earliest.

Damn it, still don't seem to be available in Melbourne, seems Sydney only, oh well, I put my order in, so hopefully as soon as they're out.

Has anyone actually seen a K-5 in a shop anywhere yet? All we have heard is a tweet from Pentax saying they are here.......

Have to show a bit of patience I'd say, first delivery to B&Ms will be very small quantities and usually most will have names on them re fulfilling back orders.

First in first served but some might put a usually no-touch display item up if they can spare - or if CRK insists.

It seemed to take a while for UK/EU and US stores to get their 2nd round batch so we might face similar delays there too.
Breath holding might not be wise.

Congrats mate. Let us know when it arrives and what you think of it.

But now Fossilo, a member here for over 2 years and we're now starting to hear from you? Where've you been all this time? Waiting on the K-5 I suppose.

Ash, check out the joining date and post count of a few of the guys posting in this thread. It would seem that quite a few aussies have been waiting for a camera like the K-5 for some time!

Myself, I'm trying to save for one.

I concede, I have been a troller and non poster. (My footy forum send me "is there something wrong" notes.) I guess having many interests that I am still feeling my way around.

I usually am a person that engages his mouth before his brain.. And being a Aussie male my comments are typically sarcastic. So I do take a while to get going....

Thanks for the cattle prod and I will post some more comments soon. (I should hit 30 posts by the end of next year with a 200 % increase.. LOL)

cheers

Rod (fossil or fossilo...) we are one and the same.
