Rang DCW Today they advised the K-3 will arrive on the 20th Nov, asked about FLU card they didn't know what it was!
Dropped into CRK Port Melb as I was in the area and was advised all stock was gone and don't know when next shipment is arriving.
They said I should perhaps ring Teds or Michaels, rang Ted's they didn't know when stock was arriving.
Might order one from Camera Warehouse for $1295.

My K-3 Limited Silver + Leather Strap + Dual Batteries + Grip + 8Gb FLUCard arrived in Canberra this morning.
Mine too, in Canberra as well.

Flash works fine, diopter seems fine, never used a leveller and don't know where it is (yet) so can't comment on that.

Initial impressions, VERY good. It looks, feels, and operates like a MUCH more refined machine than my K20d & K10d. Control functions significantly different so I'm just about to explore and identify all the key functions I use regularly. Discovery and testing all the new bells and whistles will most likely take several months.

Enjoy all!

Looks like we are all going to have a great weekend.

External flash actually works as it should ie get consistent results. Might not go manual flash for a while.

As soon as the camera arrived the weather went crap. had fun doing raindrops but did get one pic with massive purple fringing.

Love the new AF.

The brotherhood of K-3 Silver is 2000 strong. I may be the least but I am in this clan

Don't mind me....I am just bored at work.

lets hope not too many lives are lost and the Pentax factory survives.

Talk about frustrated, I was lucky enough to have Friday off from my work ( a 2.5 hour drive from home) after a week of horse racing in Melbourne I needed the rest. Sure enough tonight they rang to say I had a parcel just arrived from C R Kennedy. Noooooooooooo! Guess who is going for a drive tomorrow to collect my silver baby.

Picked up my K-3 on the way home from work tonight (Adelaide, South Australia)

No flash problem - good.
Very happy with 8.3fps and AF performance

From looking at the path of that massive typhoon, looks like the cameras that came this week may be the last to arrive in Australia for a while ...

Got my K3 Silver this afternoon at Sunshine Coast Qld.
No flash problems.
Now just one more sleep and I can play in the sun.

My "PENTAX K-3 Premium Silver Edition" came in today (heheh, reading off the box ).

Funny thing though, Michelle from CRK emailed me a consignment tracking number. So I checked it up, and it already said it was delivered at home... well, at least I got some heads up

Although, I only just got home now - was at a late Friday night birthday party
