K-5 prices (Europe)

May I ask, what kind of recent prices are you finding for the K-5 body only in the EU zone? I have visited 2 dealers in Athens this week, but they only have 1 kit each, no breakups and will have body only soon...both are quoting me a price I find a little higher than I was expecting.

Can you reply with your experiences or what you have seen for the K-5 in the Europe lately?

body only was not worth it for me. i got the kit lens almost for free (and i wanted a weathersealed kit lens), the body only is generally a bit too expensive to pass up the wr . it also was not in stock at the distributor, so everybody was quoting weeks for body only and days for kit. i guess pentax really wants to get those wr kit lenses rolling

Great replies!

Regarding Pixmania, is extra duty applied to the purchase or owed by me when picked up for shipping in my country? Is the price advertised the final and no extras charged for tax?

I will be in Rome for the next several days and will be checking some prices there as well.

In Romania i guess cheaper is 4599 lei (1 euro = 4,299 lei) so is 1070 euro body only. 2 years warranty, but i don't see them to have it in stock. Bought my k-x from this online store fotostart.ro, had no problem with it so far, warranty is at Pentax Romania representative. Pentax official dealer has it for 1126 euro.
