I want to... But guess I will buy one when I come back from US in January. Do they do Black+BG5 bundle?
No - at least, not currently. The K-3 is either body only, or with the 18-55 or 18-135.... In fact, the webstore doesn't even have the new D-BG5 listed yet.

Hi guys, I know CRK website says the silver is a limited edition....does it mean literally that they are limited number of the k-3 silver that will be manufactured?

I wanted to get the silver version but I kinda need to wait a little due to other financial commitment but I don't want to miss the boat because if all units are sold out and no longer made available I will be extremely disappointed.

Yes, only 2000 in the world will be produced at this stage. Someone said that around 140 of the units have been allocated for Australia.

We'll one less available now, there was no way I could resist

Finally clicked the link on the email sent by C R Kennedy to pre order the K-3, they didn't mention the limited edition silver with grip, but a little searching in the webstore, a little paypal work on my part = I happy pentaxian. So nice to have world parity pricing with the added advantage of quick delivery direct to me. Most camera sellers do not stock a wide range of Pentax cameras near me so direct from the importer works well for me, the bg5 grip pricing is very realistic over the body only price, it will match nicely with my set of limited fa's as well as my beloved 80-200 f2.8, silver forever

For those of you pre ordering with CRK, are you making payment up front, or will CRK bill you when the cameras start shipping?



Thanks.

CRK webstore always bill upfront if paid via PayPal. From experience, they also refund any payment promptly with no hassles if asked to do so.

Camera House in The Central Market has quoted me $1299 but I'm not sure if that includes a FLU card. Clem Kennedy replied to an email but only answered one of my questions (actually two) and hasn't responded to my subsequent requests for prices and info.

I want to know if FLU cards come standard with the camera and what the Australian price of the BG-5 is stand alone. The Silver kit looks pretty bad in pictures but seems to be the best value as they chuck in the grip for the B&H price plus you get the FLU card, a leather strap and an extra battery.

I won't be able to take advantage of that deal unfortunately as I've had major car repairs to pay for and a big vet bill that will be coming next week.

PS> CRK take all your money up front on pre-orders.

I just received another email and have been told that FLU cards are supplied with all K-3's "for the time being" and I believe that includes those purchased via dealers.
