The (astoundingly crappy) French Pentax website (which has the K-7 buried in the inner pages for some reason with no mention on the home page lists the price as :
1249 € naked
1349 € with the new DA 18-55mm
1599 € with both new DA 18-55mm and DA 50-200mm

Availability is listed as end of June. None of the usual merchant sites seems to list it so far.
If those are official list prices they will end up cheaper in the shops.
First batch will be close to the official list price though

What was K20D's MRRP on release in UK

QuoteOriginally posted by Vaikis_ Quote
Saw price in UK:
Pentax K-7 £1,199.99
Pentax K-7 + 18-55mm Kit £1,229.99
Can anyone accurately remember what the MRRP of the K20D was in the UK, and it's actual price in the shops on release.

I paid £480 (inc' casback) for body plus kit in December.

Need to plan my finances and timing for a K-7 purchase.

Remember price posted in the USA are without taxes unlike the european countries. However a high euro vs the dollar (currently around 1.37 USD )doesn't help...

I'm sorry but as a pure hobbyst I'm in no position to afford 1.1k camera, oh well maybe in three years I'll be able to get my hands on decen used body. Until then... how does it go? ah:

Pentax make prices better in Europe !!! Why USA people can have better prices ?
Best price I've seen in the UK yet, just over £1k body only.

Buy a Pentax K 7 D (Expert, 14.6 MP, Video HD, Body Only), #K7D - eXpansys UK

Looks like it will drop quite quickly.

Thought I had replied to this, but yes, it is. I think the double kit is a very tempting deal, the 50-200 isn't stellar, but IMHO it's quite decent, and this double kit makes a very lightweight travel kit for wet conditions (trekking etc.).

Fovi, the previous Pentax distributor, beats them on price, they're taking pre orders at NOK 10495,- (incl. 25% VAT): Fovi AS - K-7 kamerahus
