K-1 + kit lens $2200 rumor

Not sure how reliable is this. But this is a price point I been saying all along and what I think it should be, to be competitive.

Price and kit lens information has been leaked for the upcoming Pentax K-1 full frame DSLR camera.

According to latest rumors, long-waited Pentax K-1 full frame DSLR camera body only price will be €1,999 and it will be available as kit with the 28-105mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens.

US prices are usually lower so the K-mount Pentax full frame DSLR camera is expected to have a price tag around $2,200. More details after the break!

All rumor sites I've seen so far suggest that's body-only price. Tack on some extra for that lens, I'd bet. Still, pleasing news and I'm happy to see some substantive leaks about the new K-1.

FWIW Daily Camera News didn't have a Pentax Rumors section until last week.

If that's the price it will be a disappointment.

I cant see how a 36mp FF camera with GPS, Pixel Shift, Crop mode, etc, etc, etc at the price of $2200 will be a "disappointment" .. This is why I told since the begining, we cant judge the price of the FF based on the price of the released lenses ( as many people especulated ) because we simply dont know... I believe that Ricoh wants to give the best for the most attractive price.. and $2200 ( assuming that's the price ) is a really really reaaaaally attractive price.

That price doesn't seem that unreasonable considering the marketplace. With a lens I'd say it's pretty good.

The price is TOO LOW. It's a VA consumer lens. It won't be a competitive body at that price. Just another me-too average FF.

No way are they pricing top line features at $2,200 body-only.
Ignore this comment. If the price is $2,200 that will be good.

If true that will be a very attractive price, far lower than I expected. It might be the only camera I have ever pre-ordered.............

«the 28-105mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens»??? What "28-105"? The FA's are f3.2-4.5 or 4-5.6. Is it a new D-FA?

Yes, it's a yet unannounced lens (but it's on last year's public roadmap).

Blah, there's space for a K1-s or K-1x à la Nikon D4s/D4X/D3s/D3x etc.
A problem but it can be adressed without too much problem.

That wouldn't be a kit lens and it could be proposed later on.

And is in the works if I interpret Kenspo hints correctly or at least something along those lines (could be 3.5-4.5, I wouldn't mind).
And if Sigma gives its /4 zooms to K mount, we're covered.
