Kinda. Mid-to-late March. Though supplies will be scarce. Demand will be high.

Amazon has both for pre-order. K20D "Available for Pre-order. This item will be released on May 5, 2008" and K200D "This item will be released on April 1, 2008."

Read 'em and weep.

Amazon almost always has a date for pre-release that's one month off...to protect themselves.
Still it's a good barometer. It probably means we can expect the K20D to be with most dealers by some time in April.

Good point Mark! I'm also disappointed that no one else even has it listed yet... I'd guess that they haven't secured distribution yet and want to play it VERY safe!

Also in Amazon's case, it's probably a safe bet that either a) they DO have a signed contract for X number of units, or b) they figure it's close enough to a done deal that they can afford to speculate in order to accumulate.

It is not very interesting when the new cams will be available in the U.S.
It is much more interesting when the new cams will be available in the Netherlands.

For me is that then much more interesting.

Well if I could combine it with a trip to Amsterdam, one of favorite cities, I'd be with you for this one.

BTW, happy birthday! :-)
