Free battery grip with K-1 pre-order rumour

Don't know if this has been posted elsewhere.

I thought someone posted something similar in UK market?

Nothing in US so far. Wonder how they will handle kit (camera with lens) for those that pre-ordered. Assuming there will be a kit anyway.

I think the camera is going to be a really nice size. The K-3 was small enough that my pinky kind of hung off the bottom uncomfortably. With the grip, its super comfy. But the K-1 might be just that little bit bigger where I don't need the grip for that pinky comfort.

I'm hoping for some lens discount bundles instead. Like add $250 to body price to get the new 28-105 instead of separate for $500.

srs microsystems have got about 12 different bundles (including one with grip) with 130 off - that's about it as far as I know

Wex have also got the grip for 99 - (130 off ) when bundled with the camera.

From the source.... the trusty Pentax Rumors:

Rumors: Pentax K-1 pre-orders will be shipped with a free battery grip | Pentax Rumors

I gladly accept the DBG6 if they attached free to the order, but i doubt it, prove me wrong Ricoh, prove me wrong....
