Heh, maybe it΄s just the pessimist in me...
On the other hand currency exchange rates have changed quite a lot recently.
Time will tell
Well,Pepe, hopefully, what I received from Ricoh-Imaging/Pentax Canada today "will" hold true for Finland and around
the world. On the same day as the price increases, the K-3 is dropping in price by over a $100 CDN .

Cheers,

Jack

L.L. Lozeau in Montreal have the K3II (body only) listed at 1250$,
and the K-50 (body only) is on rebate at 380$ until Apr. 30th
Hi Michel,

I believe the $1250/1250$ is the MSRP and, perhaps, Ricoh is going the route of
the other manufacturers and instilling MAP's (Minimum Advertised Price).

Cheers,

Jack

The Camera Store has quoted me $1228 Cdn for the K3II
Hi Bob,

Well, that's a bit better. $22 less than the MRSP

Cheers,

Jack

Yes, but the sales tax in Alberta is way less than in B.C.

Whether they will hold that price when stock arrives or not is another question. I haven't placed an order as yet, but once I get an idea on delivery dates I'll place one.

True dat, LA_P, and it still amazes me that some folks, whilst visiting Vancouver, well the store I work at,
still purchase kit from us with both taxes? On occasion, it's a thrashed camera and they're just buying
a "band-aid" camera but, on numerous occasions, they're upgrading to better DSLR and they've been
surprised that the difference is a little as it is??

Cheers,

Jack
