You should do another poll: the Black Friday 2018 price. That's when I'm buying mine.

Moin, denke unter 2500,- € Startpreis wird da wenig gehen, eher sehe ich den Preis über 3000,- €. Ob es weltweit genug pentaxians gibt, die den Preis zahlen werden, bleibt abzuwarten.
Ist wie der immer wieder geäußerte Wunsch nach "langem" Glas: haben will es jeder, zahlen kann es aber kaum jemand, also landen dann doch die meisten wieder bei Sigma oder Tamron. Ist ja bei Canikon nicht anders! Selbst im Profibereich werden für die nicht fest angestellten Bildjournalisten die Investitionssummen mitunter zum Problem. Und Geld wird vornehmlich im Massenmarkt verdient, das weiß auch Ricoh! FF dient als Aushängeschild, um ernst genommen zu werden. Nur ist der Weg zurück in den Profibereich arg weit für Pentax/Ricoh.

I guess it will be 3000 Euros, because it's a Pentax, it's different from others. Canon and Nikon bodies don't have a knob to set the iso manually.

I'm pretty sure it will be above ¥3000.

I think your poll needs to reference what currency your price reflects. 2400 what?? USD, CAD, GBP, AUD, JPY, EURO?

Good point!
I guessed in USD even though I'm in Canada...
Might be in Euros as the OP is from Germany.

I meant $, but normally it is $ = € for Pentax products.

I'm guessing 2800 USD, which with today's exchange rate means 3800 Canadian dollars! 8^0

Not really going to consider buying until the price is $1200 to 1400 Canadian. I bought a K5 when first announced, and it was worth the money -- but that's the max I will spend on a camera.
