Wait, what? (Swedes buy silver! K200D for super price in this thread)

CyberPhoto AB - Personlig service på nätet

I had no idea this camera even existed in silver. Is this new? Why have I not heard about it before I just saw it on a Swedish webstore? The price is RIDICULOUS too, 3990:- with lens is 445 US dollars and less than what a Nikon D60 costs here in Sweden.

This is a limited stock type offer -- the OTHER large Swedish camera webstore has the regular black K200D with lens for 5495:- which is 613 dollars. So, almost 200 dollars cheaper and a snazzy silver finish to go with your FA limiteds. I don't need this upgrade, can't afford it, and I still feel like I'm stupid for not taking advantage of it! Just buy this thing if you're Swedish and in the market for a DSLR!

I hadn't heard about it either. I bought my FA43 lmt. from the site, Cyberphoto is a fine place.


Good explanation of dust system :

Dammborttagningen arbetar på tre sätt:
1. En ytbeläggning på sensorn som motverkar att damm och smuts fastnar
2. Eventuellt skräp som fastnar vibreras bort
3. Slutligen fastnar dammet på en självhäftande yta för att undvika att ramla runt i kameran igen

I posted several times information about K200D silver.
First time near 1/2 year ago.

This is actually a new shipment they just got in. No retailer in Sweden that I know of has ever carried the silver K200D before, so this is not a "let's get rid of all our Pentax stuff" fire sale.

Oh, and I found this image on flickr:



NICE.

This is downright odd.

Not the camera itself (the *ist DS was also available in silver), but the fact that it's starting to pop up various places, while it was apparently never announced (and very cheap to boot).

Could this be part of the package at PMA next week?

Could be a custom paint job someone in the garage is doing or could be photoshopped and they send you a black one.
