Well, it's possible they're just sold out and can't get any more.

They probably can't get any bodies and so aren't stocking the rest of the kit until bodies become available again.

It looks like Pentax may be making the same mistake they did between the end of the *ist's and the K-series release, with no bodies available to cover the gap. Unless they intend to ship the K2 series bodies at the end of January (one can hope).

As you suggested, and has been suggested in other threads elsewhere, if Pentax could announce on 1/24 that "here are our new cameras" and "oh, by the way, now stocked at a retailer near you"

that would be huge, not even because canon and nikon don't do it, but because in the buy-it-now world we live in...its just huge. This way of doing things is one reason Apple enjoys success. They orchestrate a massive press event to unveil all new iPods, and you can get them, for the most part, the next day in stores.

Would be impressed if they pulled that off

But we haven't even gone into the "pre-order" stage. That lasts for months....and months...

Yeah, it's like the release of Gran Turismo 5...gets bumped and bumped till no one even has a year guess when it comes out.

I have a feeling though...even though the Pentax announcement is going to big, the Canon one is bigger :/

I just got off the phone with my local camera shop. I asked if they happened to know if there was a new camera line comming out. The girl replied she did not know however she was just informed today by her supplier/rep that there were no more K100D's and K10D's

Well if they're no longer making the current line they must be spending an awful lot of time on the next line, right?

Same-day or next-day availability would be extremely helpful to their marketshare.

The only Pentax DSLR equipment I've ever seen at my local CC is a 50-200. Nothing else. Not sure about P&S's though.
