First K20d Buy It Now-s on Ebay France...

The French are quick! Again, they have the honour to be the first.

Price range is from 1150 Euros and up. Four variations available:
With a 16-50 F/4, DA18-55II and a 16-45 F/2.8 and a body only.

Curious how long before they're sold... :-)

You have been excited too quickly

Auction 320214340516 (and all others of seller pentax-univers) says: "Disponible début Mars 2007 / Réservez le........... " which means "becoming available in early March".

So nothing new, except that seller pentax-univers breaks EBay rules which again then, is nothing new.


There are about 16 online dealers in Germany taking back orders for a K20D body starting at 927 Euro excl. VAT right now.

I am skeptical, as production units are not ready yet. Unless they are selling demo pre-production beta units. Scam alert!

Have you seen this one (320214340516), too? No disclaimer like the one you mentioned...

Syb

EDIT: You are right. This one has the same disclaimer. That is silly. Why offer a Buy-It-Now if one cannot get it now?

Because by breaking EBay rules this way the shop makes more money. The disclaimer was hard enough to find, right? EBay rules only allow Buy-It-Now for back-orders of books and DVD/CDs, obviously in their attempt to compete against Amazon. A camera body is no CD...
