Hey, don't call Belgium (yep the other one of the low countries) a calvinist nation... It's mostly catholic (or used to be anyway). Not that I really care though...

From what I heard the show stopper is the distributor which is located in Belgium (De Beukelaer) with a subsidiary in The Netherlands. A little mouse told me they already have the K20Ds in stock, but would be testing them to ensure delivering the very best quality... Seems they have a reputation for doing so. Cannot tell whether this is correct or an excuse...

They don't only distribute Pentax btw, but also other brands one of which is Leica.

Could it be I was that little mouse?

Called de Beukelaer today. They promissed me the first delivery was due this week... (but don't shoot the messenger if the message turns out bogus... )

Like it or not, we both get things like health care and they don't. I'll pay more for that.
Ouch.

I suppose if we wanted health care, we'd just take all those bombs and planes we make, invade Canada, and just take it from them. Like we did Iraq's oil. That's why we are paying $0.75 per gallon these days. Wait a minute, I meant liter. Ah, to hell with it all. That's what I get for voting for Ralph Nader.

Still no word in Belgium...

But my trust in the little mouse (yep, it's you Pentaxke ) is unlimited. Well... he'll be the one not playing with the K20D if I don't get it before the week-end. I'll get to play with it if I get it later too...
