At Combo's request Pentax will make a limited white series K-m+kit lens

Not to be mistaken with the previous dual kit ones.

I must be crazy but this could mean that there is demand for this little white puppies?

yes that's 110 USD, and that cant possibly be right. if it is, I imagine they will sell very quickly.

I say it's more like 70 000 yen, at least this is what I get in my translation from google. In fact this means a premium of about 15-20% above the "black" one.

I'd like to know how you got google to give that up. I tried 3 different ways and all I got was ten thousand. So I went to babel fish, and you were right. I narrowed it down to these three pictograms 7万円 which appears to mean(or at least internet shorthand for) 7 ten thousands. Bummer, it would have been nice to pick something like this up for ebay prices.

I don't know, my first try with google gave me something like this: "Over-the-counter price of 70,000 yen forecast said. Limited number of 3,000"
I guess I was just lucky.
