I've received my K-1 II (and the FA 43/1.9) today.
You received it? From a retailer? How did you get it early ? Neat trick a lot of folks here would probably like to learn.

It's no trick. It's in stock in UK stores - you just walk in with your money.

Europe seems often to get delivery of new cameras a week or two before the US. Not always but often. I am sure it is easier for the company to ship in stages. An extra week or two won't kill us. It will be nice to hear what those on the other side of the pond find out as we wait for our cameras over here.

Spiegelreflexcamera - Fotocamera's Onze prijzen zijn internet-prijzen

K-1 for 1599 euro
K-1ii for 1799 euro
Currently they seem the best prices, in Italy, Germany, France, Spain etc. seem to be in line with 1999 Euro. Who can benefit from it at the moment is obviously who lives in the EU,
I do not know with certainty if Great Britain, benefit from it at present (since the date of exit from the EU is set for next year).


* Pentax K-1 Mark II Body Black - € 1,799.00

* Pentax K-1 Body Zwart + Pentax FA 28-105mm f/3.5-5.6 ED DC WR - € 2,299.00

In addition, they are covered by a 5-year warranty

We are still in the EU, so can purchase it without paying duties, if the seller will ship it. The best price here is 1799 so 2000EUR or so. If not, however, then Wex and Jessops both have the K-1 mk1 for 1600, so by my maths it works out cheaper to buy that and get the upgrade when it's available.

In fact I wrote, the official release is scheduled for next year. As for the price, it is because in some ebay ads from the UK appears the inscription on any customs fees that could be calculated when paying with Paypal.
I have never paid any duty so far.

Of course you should. You know you want either the new one or the 5.000 click K-1 somebody is going to sell to get it.
