Wow. Already there's a K-3 II on the market. Ricoh sure are moving fast.

Don't think that's the case here... I bet the listing says just one SD card slot

Yeah, that would be Teds. They aren't exactly photo gurus over there.

I'm so excited about mine getting shipped, but I'm still back in the Philippines so sounded alright to me, though I would seriously like to intercept it here before it even go to Australia! I'd like to visit the factory here!!!

K-3 is starting to show up on some popular AU web stores:

DigitalCameraWarehouse have the K-3 (black body) now, for $1344. No Mention of the FLU Card though.

Camera Pro (Brisbane, non-grey) have the black K-3 "& Bonus Flu Card PRO 8GB" for $1232.
Camerapro now have it listed at $1344 with no FLU Card.

Interesting. I expect folks who pre-ordered from retailers when their listings did mention a FluCard would still get a Flucard though. Otherwise misrepresentation.

The AU Pentax store still lists the K-3 as coming with free FLU Card:

QuoteQuote:
Pre-order: Expected delivery November 1st 2013
BONUS: 8GB Flucard pro wireless SD card.
Maybe CRK will be shoving one in every K-3 box by default as it goes out to retailers.

DCW don't seem to know whether a FLU card is included or not, if not they won't get my business.

The custom Pentax FLUcard is required for camera control functionality, though any eye-fi wireless card, presumably including the generic FLUcard, can be used for image download. So states Ricoh's published specifications on the K-3 and numerous posts on PF. Adam reported that the Ricoh USA reps at Photoplus stated the Pentax FLUcard would not be available until December.

I think some retailers saw only FLUcard in the specs and ignored the "for Pentax" qualifier and decided to add the generic card to their kits. Now they don't know what to tell their customers.

It's not just any retailer - CR Kennedy, the official distributor, decided to include the standard card with all kits. Whether or not this has been communicated or whatever by all retailers, apparently not...

Probably a fair assumption

Meanwhile, Canada is already getting their K-3's, deliveries in France seem to be starting...
