Can you believe this!

I bought my first K-5 in november and ofcourse it had stains. Didn't want to be without camera for a long time so I just took it back on december 19th on the same day that I bought my second K-5.

I had to wait until today to get my first K-5 replaced

That is almost 4 months waiting to get a replacement camera!

Are they crazy with Pentax?

And look what happened to me today.

Someone is realy going nuts.

They send me a brand new camera.....


It is not even the right colour



Who's laughing now

And that all thanks to my dealer, Foto Looman who still has it in stock at the time.

Greetings from a happy man.

Worth the wait - particularly since you were never without a camera.
Enjoy it/them!

I bet you plenty of people will be more than happy to swap their black K-5 for your new silver one!

I think it is only fair that you got some compensation for having to wait that long.
In many places a delay like that is a violation of consumer protection laws...

That's just sad......maybe a can of black spray paint can correct the problem? I guess they just ran out of paint but knew how bad you wanted it and sent it anyhow? If you are not too good at painting, you can contact me and we can work a trade?
Best Regards!

Okay, that is one sweet deal. I guess it is true that the best things come to those who wait!

Well the waiting wass long, and in the end I was a little afraid that there would be no Silver for me and had to leave with a second black version. I sold in december my K-7 to switch to K-5 for back-up, that was after our group-purchase and the cashback from Pentax.

Well I had one super sweet deal. I found a fool who paid to much for my K-7 and in the end I paid 1549 euro to switch from one K-7 to my current K-5 Black/K-5 Silver set with both cashback.
