At this time,absolute NO K-5 is in production.
Only K-r is in Production,Sony is not producing the 16 MP Sensor for D7000 and K-5 this time.
wow I was wondering when and if Pentax would be troubled with delays in production due to Tsunami. Well there was stock available so we can run for some time.

That's rubbish info. We can get both silver and black K-5s readily here in Singapore and there are ample stocks. Who says there's a shortage?
Yeah, guess we are the lucky ones here in Singapore

Here in Singapore you can still find the silver one in camera shops or online shop like this: Pentax K-5 DSLR body Silver

Price is less than $1500usd for the silver one, while the black one only cost less than $1200usd...

Sorry,your comment is rubbish and unfriendly.
I am not in singapore.
This is the sitaution at my marketplace in Germany.
I never was in Singapore,are you in Germany/Europe?
For Asia are much more silver Bodys available than in Europe.
And the production of the silver 5 is over.

Why do you say "still no production of K-5"?
Are you implying that production for the normal K-5 has stopped?
This is not the case based on what my local Pentax distributor has told me.

Yes,since eartquake no production.No CMOS Sensor for D7000 and K-5 in Production.
Sony has no Sensorproduction yet.Only the minisensors for the P&S cams are in production.
Monday told me Pentax,no news.
So,they have to wait till Sony starts the production,same Nikon.
