Not all is lost in Pentax marketing land

Got the new catalogue for one of Sweden's biggest photography mailorder stores, Scandinavian Photo, today. Pentax products only on the cover. K20D + 16-45 campaign price + the Optio P70. Generally this store is rather Canikon-centric but I guess this March is Pentax month then.

And well, that's all I had to say about that. You can close this thread now. Just thought I'd try and balance out the woe-is-us gloom 'n' doom vibe of this forum.

And a small add from me:
Just saw a packet containing two books written by Scott Kelby about digital SLRS in my book store here in Kalmar, Sweden, and on the wrap of that package there where a lot of small pics of the K20D for decoration.

I were for sure a bit surprised. (:

There was something rather more interesting INSIDE the catalogue as well:

Without the VAT it costs around $950. So I'm going to guess it'll retail for a nice neat $1000 when it finally gets Stateside.

In France, I've seen this price : 1 362.29 (including 20% VAT)

This is the price I've been told from my brick and mortar shop also (but I was told end of February as a release date, and they stilldon't have it)

Regarding the subject of this thread, in France we are seeing full page ad for Pentax every month within the specialized press.

Regards,
Guillaume

That is the old price, before the Yen got stronger compared to the swedish Krona. The agent said 17000 SEK at the show for a couple of wees ago.

And that's roughly the price Cyberphoto has, too. Sucks for ScandinavianPhoto that they would print the old price in a catalogue that only came out a couple days ago.
