I think the under 30 minute restriction is to avoid high EU import duties that are levied on video cameras.
Ah - yep, that was it.

Contax.
Wrong.

My Contax RTS II needed repair while I was working in Hong Kong a long time ago. What was REALLY annoying though is that it came back with a scratched shutter (wasn't scratched before)!

And while I'm in that time frame, I recall one Aussie colleague saw my camera and said "Contax? What's that, like a cheap Pentax?". Yes, Pentax was a respected name in Australia in the '80s.

It's been almost ten years since they produced a camera with a flaw.

Strange. I was pretty sure that a camera scheduled for 8.August release was already manufactured and in the box.....

It's the box! They've assembled the camera, but they have no boxes!
Sorry, I have no idea, just a poor attempt at humour.

No, no, no... I think they are waiting to get the parts back from the ex-USA service centre CRIS. Sort of like a 'parts hold' in reverse.

(an even poorer attempt at humour; no offence intended to all who have had good service from CRIS over the years)

I heard the same thing and that the boxes were stolen by the same aliens that stole the plans and prototypes for the Pentax FF!

Well, clearly the aliens needed something to store those FF bodies in! Boxes are in short supply on Planet Zog.

A careful read between the lines of the Japanese small print in the link in the first post indicates that 5% of the boxes of the prestige k3 will include a MIJ silver 31 ltd. Ricoh were just having to wait for that lens production run to come in so they could be added to the box.

Just placed an order for a copy of the prestige k3 so I will let you all know if I scored the extra bonus.

I wish....

Someone neglected to order the critical Prestige Gunmetal colored parts. OOPS.
