K200D release date?

Anyone know when the K200D is going to be released?

Finding out release info on the K200D (& Samsung dslr's) is about as hard as finding a Moose in Idaho (think about it ).

But what I have found out is that the K200d ships out of Hong Kong for $869 aussie, body only, and they claim it ships in 4-7 days.

Has anyone seen one? Like the moose, I know they are out there...somewhere!

I am not talking to myself.....am I?

To be fair, I now see the K200D listed at Digital Camera Warehouse for $839 aussie.

Anyone got one? Do I have to be the first?

B&H says "arriving February" - Amazon says April 1. They're all guesses, I suppose - similar to game releases... I figure "it'll be out when it comes out".

Can't quite afford a K20D, but the K200D is quite an upgrade for me (coming from the K110D)
I'll see if I can hold off buying for a few months though. If the K20D drops in price within a few months I'll have to splurge a little...

Probably doesn't help much but the K200D was released in Australia on the same day as the K20D.

bazz.

I received mine last Friday from Camera House in Melbourne.

Lovely camera. Definitely a huge step up from my *ist DL.

No news in Europe, I started comparing it to the 645D

With such a "not so expensive" sealed body, Pentax and/or third parties should really start making somewhat cheaper sealed lenses. Now that many more manufacturers claim a bit more weather- and dust (the same in the Sahare I guess) resitance-ness, I think making sealed lenses will become a viable option for third party lens makers...

But please no sealed DA18-250 of Tamron 18-250, to many have those already...
I hope for DA17-70 as it has SDM and it was mentioned that Pentax SDM lenses would have the same protection as K10D (German K10D brochure).

GWP, at least in the US, the K200D seems to be appearing on my favorite shopping sites: Amazon, B&H & Adorama all have them now.

So hopefully they'll show up in your corner of the Earth soon.

ps: for those in the US, Amazon seems to have the best price on the K200D so far, body only $700, free shipping. (best price for stores that I trust anyhow)

The K20 and K200 were both on the shelf in the camera store today when I dropped off my K10 for AF adjustment. He offered to let me have a look-see, but I was busy with my youngin'. That store is Welcome to Windsor Photo Outfitters Seasons Greetings! in Windsor, Ontario, by the way.

my local ritz said they'd be getting all the new PMA cameras (XSi, D60, K20) sometime late march. I failed to ask them about the K200, though.
