No but local markets do have differences. A 70D body costs 1069,- over here, at current exchange rate that would be $1453.

That depends on where you live in the US. There is no federal sales tax. Every state and most larger cities (on top of the state tax) set their own sales tax rate. Combined rates range from 0% to 12.7%.
Here in Los Angeles we pay 9% on everything purchased including Amazon online. Some of east coast internet sellers are still tax free, but the loophole is closing.

And yet the CRK online shop has the 60-250/4 cheaper than B&H - AUD 1349 vs. USD 1397 - and for some reason that lens has almost always been cheaper in Australia than other countries even before you factor in postage. There never seems to be a direct correlation between US prices and Australian prices so it is difficult to predict where the K3 will come pricewise. If it matches the local price of a d7100 then I will be happy.

Ricoh rescued Pentax from Hoya indifference, under-funding and quite possibly death. I want Ricoh features on my Pentax, especially focus peaking and snap focus. If Ricoh wants their name on the back, I'm totally OK with that.

Like someone else said, I didn't buy my first DSLR because it was a Pentax, I couldn't have cared less what name was on the body. Canon was initially at the top of my list because I loved my little A720. I bought Pentax because it was the best DSLR at the best price, and nothing I've seen since has made me want to switch.
Well said.

In ol' times of analogue signal, a better signal-to-noise ratio.
The size of a headphone jack is absolutely NOTHING to do with signal to noise ratio.

I just looked carefully at my k-5II and in particular looked at the left grip. There is a lot of discussion about the 'hump' on the k-3 but comparing it to the k-5 there is a hump there as well, not as big but almost exactly in the same location. My thumb fits it almost perfectly in a classic grip. The larger hump in the k-3 might fit even better. It isn't as 'new' as I thought it was, just expanded slightly over the one on the k-5.

They've been going for awhile and lots of people seem pretty happy with them. Simon Thomas (TOUGEFC) seems to like them and bought stuff after I recommended he look at them.

We all know your opinion by now, and the distortions and lies ("HD Lenses are for video!") you have employed to back it up. Can you just PLEASE let the grownups talk now?

I couldn't care less. They can close up shop for all I care. This video camera is the most stupid move they ever made.

OK, i get that more metal equals better connection, thus less resistance...but really, I-everything uses a tiny jack, and the quality of the sound is astounding...

must be something more
Jack connections are circular and thus it's a point contact. The restistences of the connection is negligable to the point of irrelevance. As said above the size of the JACK makes NO difference.
