K-3 was $1299 at release. The price is between a Nikon D5300 ($700) and the new Canon T6s ($850) and similar to K-50 - those are the direct competitors.
Regardless, the price will likely fall within a few months. It also seems that this price is artificially high, as the front page article suggests $699 msrp.

Indeed - it's only natural for them to want us to see the world from their perspective.

It's been approved for use "down under", now you mention it. The sample photos look like they were taken in Australia.
