I am ordering as soon as... cannot wait for this to hit the Aussie shelves.

I think I have read somewhere that with the new K-7 batteries you get 900 plus shots... is that correct?

Yep, quoted at like 950 shots or so iirc. Very impressive figures. Same here, arrival quoted for mid june, might drag out to late june though, who knows. I'm definately going to be trying to organise a Sydney group buy on another forum, will pass over info if it looks like it's going to go ahead.

I think this would be the thread to keep active on that proposal mate.

Cheers

I was just wondering if they were making the battery grip out of the same magnesium/steel alloy that the rest of the camera is made of...if it isn't I'm going to be so pissed.

Price is good! Now.. do I want the body only or with the WR Kit.... hmm....

How much cheaper do you think if we all do a group bulk purchase? $1199?

Wow. IF that price is reflected here across the ditch I may even trade up from the K20D.

I'm definitely getting one. Been saving (and praying that pentax would deliver) and holding off any more LBA just for this occasion.

I am in for group buy too.

Very amusing, Adrian!

This community is about as excited as a lot of us were in 2007, at the prospect of a new K!

I doubt the bulk order will reduce the price by much, but you never know, and I think I might be interested, too.

Yeah same here, I doubt they're making much really on them anyways. But even $50-100 is a saving, I mean anythign is going to help my poor poor bank account

A group buy sounds like a great idea, let me know what deal you get.

Yeah i'll be trying to get some numbers tomorrow (after I finish this assignment, god the release of this camera was bad timing heh) and then will give the call round and see what sort of prices possibly with multiple orders.

So if you're 100% keen let me know. Remember prices arne't fixed yet, so i'd leave a little room for error in the prices given so far.
