I wanted to give my new K3 a workout this weekend. Isn't there a song that goes 'Wishing and waiting ..'
Me, too, but there you go. Are you thinking of "Wishing and Hoping"?

yes that's the one - I can hum the tune and get into the emotions but I am a horror at remembering the words.

As an aside, Clem from CR Kennedy emailed me to say they were uploading the BG-5 to their website today. I asked the price - $249.
Still no sign of it on their website though.

That's an excellent price. Cheaper than the BG-4, which last time I looked was $299, even more some places.

The editors will have no idea what you are talking about so you won't get touched. LOL

Pity they didn't put it up earlier. I expected their BG-5 price to match their BG-4 horror price ($399), so I ordered from B&H. The B&H BG-5 price is USD$199, including shipping total price was AUD $245.

I prefer buying domestically, and at $249 I would have.

I'm pretty sure this is the standard Flucard, and not the specialised version designed to give remote control to the K-3 - which is a 16 Gb version. Still its a good deal, and I'll be asking CRK for a flu card with my Camera too.

Speaking of which, I called them today as there has been a glitch in paying for my K-3, and the latest news is that they expect the delivery will be completed by Friday next week. (November 15th) This is pretty well in line with what I was told last week too - middle of the month. I wonder what the delay is.
