If you were a member of the UK Pentax forum (PU) then you would get free shipping.

Interesting - amazon.uk still has it at 1.129,- preorder... I guess the European prices isn't going to be that bad...

Picked mine up from SRS this afternoon... I've come to the conclusion that... it is nothing like the K20D

... even the manual has different dimensions! An afternoon of reading, coffee and listening to the body to try and detect it is doing anything. Wish me luck I'm going into the menus, I may be sometime.

Amazon ain't cheap. Period. I haven't bought any of my photography kit from them at all.

What is listed on Amazon.com is usually very competitive. Most of the time they list the lowest advertised price anyway...not saying there aren't lower prices out there, but Amazon is usually a pretty accurate indicator of the market.

They have one more left so if you want it, get on the blower now!
