Pentax Full Frame is on Reserve for $500!

My local photo store www.lozeau.com (click on "English" at the very top...) is accepting reservations for the new Pentax FF for $500. Cool eh?

They get to sit on your $500 for a couple of months. Cool.

Got to love reservations for a product that hasn't even been announced yet

I remember about something similar from a Spanish site, right after CP+, and not for a mere $500... my memories are a bit fuzzy now, though

Not only do they get to sit on your money for months but you are fairly committed to purchasing from them at whatever price point they announce.

And whatever this site decides to charge.

Anyone who pays a $500 deposit for an unknown product at an unknown price is very trusting.

C'mon, people. Have a heart! You don't seriously expect rational behavior from Full Frame Fanatics, now do you?

In their bank account, gaining interest, probably in some other nation that still has meaningful, useful interest savings rates...

This probably means that it will cost more than $500.

Does this deal include the check you cash for somebody stuck in Africa that can't find a bank to use and can't get home without your help?
