"1,500 Euros" so maybe $1,800 US Dollar bills

Or maybe it'll be $1,500 dollars /1500 Euros?

Is this "a mint" for a aps-c K mount dslr?

Just out of curiosity - are you RiceHigh with 2 accounts or are you two different people? I see both user names (Samsungian and RiceHigh) talk about how much they like Canon and now I see Samsungian advertising RiceHigh's blog so I was just wondering

Ahhh No Dude...

I talk up Samsung, Nikon, Olympus OM, Minolta MD, Canon FD, Canon Eos, Minolta AF, Tamron adaptall system & Panasonic G1.

I even talk up my K20D. Other than Panasonic I actually own and use bits & pieces from all of the above. I've considered G1 but I am passing on it (((again))) This time I am due for a new wimberley gimbal head for my next big trip. So no G1, no 2nd K20D.

I am not ricehigh, I am samsungian

Thanks for ask'n, kunick

You may not realize this but ricehigh broke this story days ago. Whats new news here is old news there.

Thats cool. I was just curious. Thanks for clearing that up
I have never been to RiceHigh's Blog and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

Doubt it.... he just parrots others in general though once in awhile he may have a "first" if it's posted in a Chinese site........

I'm a Japanese speaker. The text on the poster (名機の誇りを受け継ぐ者)reads:

"Meiki no hokori wo uketsugu mono," or roughly, "That which inherits the pride of a high-performance machine". Clunky in English, cool in Japanese.

That's not true.

RH blog entry (April 14) dates from 1 day after our K7 mega thread took off (April 13).

And while I am at it ...

Can we keep the discussion in the appropriate thread then?

Thank You.

Not "clunky" in English, but just a not-so-good English interpretation and translation.

It should read, "The proud successor of the renowned gear", if I am to translate it. Justs that! Does it look better and easier to understand now? :-)

Well it's not my translation, but another one from the same thread says:
The successor to the pride of great master ( in SLR camera history of Pentax)So now we have 3 translations from 3 non-japanese (assumed from country of origin (S. Korea, Lamma Is. Hong Kong, and you)... )
That which inherits the pride of a high-performance machine
They all pretty much are the same..........
