You won't be seeing any K-5 photos for a while!

People who currently have the pre-release K-5 are not allowed to publish photos (except for those from Photokina: https://www.pentaxforums.com/Impressive-K-5-High-ISO-Performance ), so let's simmer down on the links to all the supposed reviews and videos.

In order news, B&H has posted the K-5 kit on their site: Pentax K-5 DIGITAL CAMERA KIT W/18-55 (BLACK) 14762 - B&H Photo

they might not even know what their buying price is. So if they want to release it for "pre order" they have to play save with a high price.

Lets see what the price is, when it is available

Not*. My bad there.

The pre-release 0.10 firmware is what was pre-loaded prior to Photokina, and I'm hearing that the current pre-release firmware is 0.30. Falk has posted a sample photo from photokina: Impressive K 5 High ISO Performance - Pentax News & Rumors - PentaxForums.com

1199.99 ?

Gah, that's really the wrong price if it's going to compete with the Nikon D7000 (100 dearer) and is actually more expensive than a 7D body (granted, no kit lens).

It really had to be under 1000

Why??? I'd like to see it cheaper too but people do not usually go for the cheapest (not even in these times)... Or best How many cars are sold while there are cheaper or better (or both) cars? How many TV sets are bought the same way? Sound systems??
Photographers are not that different....
If people were going for cheap, we'd see a lot more pentax in the worl.
