Hallenti - Indeed, and here for the Pentax D-BH109 - Hoya Corp. - Assembled in the Philippines, we pay $62.00. That's about US$61.98 today.

Perhaps our Chinese friends can start churning-out "clones" - for about $10.00....

Apparently the shop here won't "discount" the adaptor, even if you buy it with the K-R and a lens.

As it might have cost Hoya about $5.00 to get made in the Philippines - they could have included it in the box... Even if they charged $10.00 extra.

Perhaps the pricing is to try to force users to use the power-packs... I see that Pentax power-packs for K-R are around $28.00 here - but online there are Chinese ones for about $5.00.

However, for K-R, I'll be using AA Eneloops - they power my other 3 cameras - and are "backed-up" by AA Alkalines bought anywhere.

Dave.

I look forward to some Chinese vendors ...

I thinks that near 1 month the price will be around 5/10 Euro/Dollar on ebay.

Has anyone run across a supplier (with it in stock) for the K-AC109 AC power adapter for the K-r? Adorama has it listed, but it's backordered for who knows how long.. . . .

I ordered one from the Ebay seller listed above and received it today, it looks to be the same as the Pentax version.

Cheez and Rice! I bought the AA battery adapter with my K-r when I ordered it through Amazon! What is the freaking problem?! Just find it and order it finally!

Is there still any interest in getting the adapter for a PF member price around here or did everyone already get one of these?

I got one from hawk1500 the first time around. If he has more, that's the way to go-he's made a lot of us very happy by supplying these.
