Wow, it's still there 14 hours after Adam's post! Did these guys stare at the sun too long during the eclipse?

Even worse is the fact that US users can't even order the camera!

$2 US converts to ... hmm... roughly $2570 Canadian. Not a huge savings for us northern folk.

Yeah, but what they don't tell you is that the grip purchase is mandatory, and it costs an additional $2200.

Since it can't be added to the cart as of yet the $2.00 price is probably a placeholder when the designer was setting up the page. The US price may not have been set yet and perhaps should have been changed to TBA.

Per jstrawman's post upthread K-1 is available for addition to the cart @$1949.00.

There's a convenient +/- control so you add 2 or more to your cart on one line.

Actually the site looks very good -professional - and is snappy - not the kludge it was before.

As per the original post, we're talking about the K-1 Silver Limited Edition: PENTAX K-1 Limited Silver

We know we can buy the K-1 if we want, we're just having a joke about the price on that page.

That's when it's supposed to start shipping. But you can already place pre-orders in every major region except for North America and it's likely that most will sell out that way.

Did North America get an allocation, is RIAC behind in their marketing (yet again) or did Ricoh just punt us altogether?

Well it looks like something is going to happen since the camera has been posted on their web site, but I haven't heard back from anyone that I've reached out to. Let's hope for some updates on Monday!

Good (not that I'm in the market for another K-1).
