Guess the price of the k-01

Wow this section looks lonely, so lets have a game, guess how much the price of the k01 will be (USD prices).

I'll start
$1450.96 (with that new lens)

Body Only could be as little as $700. Remember: Times have changed and so have cameras.

Fuji X100 is $1,200 and I guess the K-01 will be in that region (with 40mm XS).

If it is priced like the Fuji... I might rather buy the Fuji. It seems to be more interesting, apart from the fact that I can use my old lenses. But who has old Pentax lenses...?

I'm hoping for NEX-3 like pricing, but expect NEX-7 like pricing.

Fuji Xpro = $1700, NEX 7 = $1200, Nex 5 = $600, K5 = $1200

If Pentax is positioning this below the K5, I'd guess body only a smidge below $1000
The NEX 7 (and K5) set an effective upper limit on pricing

Then again, no EVF and if this is a K-r replacement, $729.95 body only

I'm going to guess a MSRP of $1099 but the market will quickly drop it to $799-899 range. Oh and that's with the DA 40 XS.
