Not bad, CRK. The 7th is better than the 17th or 27th. Plenty of time to get them in stores and publicised before the launch on the 19th.

I guess we will also now start to see K-5 II prices start their slide downwards.

That's an improvement. With luck, I might see mine next week, then (the K-3, that is, as nice as a K-5II might be).

Stop press

face book - Pentax snaps - K3 landed down under

https://www.facebook.com/PentaxSnaps?

That went up around 1.30 on Thursday (21 minutes ago)
Yep, they're here, and they are being dispatched beginning today.

I just got off the phone to CRK again. Unfortunately, timing will probably mean that the delivery to me looks like being after the weekend. They wouldn't let me go in and pick it up, as they have them all palleted for distribution already. Ahh well, another few sleeps till it arrives. As Con the Fruiterer would say - Cuppla Dayz!

PS no news if the BG-5 is in the consignment received at CRK

My Birthday is the start of next month - my answer is yes yes - but it won't be a present as I will need to wait to open it - I've been caught out before

I require it for work and I save money as I shouldn't need to buy a $2,000 video camera. That's my story and I am sticking to it.
Oh no, mine too! Just flipped for a K30 - is too soon for a K3?

Never too soon for a K3. A K3 plus K30 has a lovely ring to it.

I have just received an official email from CRK letting me know the K3's have arrived and will be delivered in the next few days.
It didn't mention if that includes the Silver ones but I am expecting them to be here as they are proposing to give one away at the official launch on 19th.

Maybe Tony Abbott stopped the wrong boats
He hasn't stopped any boats as the policy has not changed since the government.. it's Rudd's policy which has started to work.. as much as I think it all sux.

PS: Sorry to be such a killjoy as I know that comment was a joke but I just found out my father died last night and I'm an emotional wreck.

Good news, thanks for the updates all.

I'm awaiting a silver, and haven't had an email from CRK, so not getting too excited yet....

Sorry to hear that, Steve. The fact that it's something most of us endure is probably no consolation, but those who have will know something of what you're feeling now.

Best wishes. Rob

Thanks Rob, the funeral is in Melbourne on Monday so I'll be flying over there. I was hoping to see him a couple of weeks ago but my mum had a fall (I'm her carer) and she's been bed ridden ever since.. strange how things add up.
