It is about time Pentax introduced a consumer WR lens other than double kit siblings...

No it's not. Convert with a 1:1 ratio and you are close to the actual prices. Unless you are willing to pay 20+% VAT.

1,399.00 EUR = 1,799.56 USD ! It better be good for that price. The new Nikon D7000 is $1,199 USD.

Here is a reminder of what has been rumoured for the D7000:

100% viewfinder
Dual SD memory card slots
Magnesium-alloy body
16.2MP CMOS sensor (DX)
Expeed 2
1080 HD video @24p | 720 @30p (not sure about those)
20 min video recording (up from 5min on the D90)
Save images from video (similar to the D3s)
AF during video
Stereo mic input for video
6 fps
Virtual horizon (like the D300s)
One touch video and/or live view (similar to the D3100)
Improved ISO range: 100-25600
39 AF points
Wireless flash
Weather proof (like the D300s)
New battery system
Expected price: $1199 for body only
LOL, nobody still knows real D7000 spec and price !!! Stop dreaming people.
it's wish list from Nikon users !!!
And Pentax K-5 price isn't corect in this Germany online shop ! It should be ~ 1200 EUR for body.

that's all speculation.

with all those rumored specs of the d7000, i don't see how nikon can price it at $1199! that'll kill d300s sales.

again, it's all just rumors.

and if true, will all that spec and truly $1199, i'll end up with 2 systems!

Do EUR prices always reflect direct conversions on the market?

From market view Europe vs USA, prices almost all times are 1 EUR = 1 USD

At that price range for the Nikon D7000, if true, it looks like Nikon is trying to compete with the Canon 60D level of camera, so expect the same thing. Take off the double memory card slots and the weather sealing, everything else seems reasonable.

More or less, yes. But prices in much of europe also include VAT, which is close to 20% in most countries.

It could hardly have worse IQ than the Canon...
I started a thread a while back on whether corner sharpness was overrated. Viewing some lovely images from the poorly-rated Canon 18-135 was the inspiration. I don't think it is a BAD lens, but it just does not offer a thing to justify a larger price and size than an 18-250~270.
