The cheapest Finnish webstore I've found so far:

K-7 body 1097€
K-7 + 18-55mm WR 1197€
K-7 + 18-55mm WR + 50-200mm WR 1397€

But I personally expect German prices to be better. I usually buy everything photography and electronics related from German online shops since they tend to be significantly cheaper.

Not always Germany have good prices, sometimes in Poland you can get better pricing.

French prices

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.

Russia ~ $2000

What's F!

That's because of idiotic supply system. First cams for to Pentax Germany (now I assume Pentax France), and then to our distributor Pentar, and only then to local shops. Our country is not reach. We have lower salaries than european people. And new Euro exchange course - ~44 rubles for 1 euro (was ~36 year ago). Hrrrr. Why can't we get Pentax equpment directly from Pentax Japan with "normal price"??? We don't have zero taxes for photo cameras for several years.

maybe you local distributor "Pentar" whant to make big money from this. Usually main distributors (in you case Petax Germany or France) recomends for what price to sell.
