That is the best word I've ever seen in my life! It would take me a week to memorize it.
Just so that we are clear, I made this one up. But, German does have some words that translate to an entire phrase in English.

I don't want us to stray from topic, but I had to mention one of my favourite German words I remember learning at school: "Straßenbahnhaltestelle" - tram stop. Brilliant

Really hoping to get one before I leave for the summer. Whats the price in China? I google-translated a few Chinese adverts saying it would cost 66,888 yuan, which converts to 10,000USD. That's obviously wrong. Someone on another forum said they will be $1100 in China. If that's true, you can expect a lot of grey market models.

Never mind. In German you can have DR, which would be a shortcut to mean dieameradieallegetränkewiderstehtkönnen
Hey mate, German is a funny language. Maybe you have a little misspelling

"diekameradieallegetränkewiderstehenkann"

I have another one for you: ambulance means
Krankenwagen

And DSLR means
Spiegelreflexkamera

(IMHO German is a pretty hard language and sounds like that )

Back to topic: K-1 is finally here! Woooopwoooop...!!!! More pictures please!!!

Actually, "correct" in some ways would be "diekameradieallengetränkenwiederstehenkann" (the camera that can resist all kind of beverages), but not as a compound word. In fact, that won't be compounded at all, even though german is the great language of compounding.
We've invented that! Or sue anyone saying different.

And, to be really annoyingly precise, SLR stands for "Einäugige Spiegelreflexkamera" (one-eyed mirror-reflex camera), whilst TLR is a "Zweiäugige Spiegelregflexkamera" (double- or two-eyed mirror reflex camera) and DSLR is a "digitale Spiegelreflexkamera", without discerning eyedness (no wonder, a DTLR would be some kind of invisible pink elephant).

But we're less precise when talking about banks and benches. Same word ("Bank") in german, except in the plural ("Bänke" - benches, "Banken" - banks).
</nitpicking>

Yep. Enough of that, back to fiddling and thumbing all the knobs and wheels ... new toy, won't be heard of for the next weeks to come ...
