Good info. Finland is #3 right behind Iceland (I like cheese, with bacon, very much).
edit: The hociR does not pass as a block of cheese, therefore not buying it.
Iceland in the n 2 position is a joke.

You just need one person to eat an extra piece of Velveeta and they're n 1.

It's not even a new camera
The description says new in box as part of a lot of 3 from a Pentax Europe warehouse, but then again...it is not red

Eh, too late I already posted a pic of that a long time ago. It's in my bling thread I think....
What I don't understand is how some dope can pimp a camera and sell it on eBay as new when it was released 5 years ago.

Oh, and the website the seller mentions that pimped the camera is no longer valid.

NOS is the term used in the car business. The Swarovski K-m was a limited edition model and was only available on special order. There was a lot of buzz about it at the time. In my opinion it is in the same league as the gold LX with alligator leather, but much better executed. The pimping was done by Bling My Thing and was blogged on their site at the time:

Pentax K-m digital SLR gets BLINGED! | Bling My Thing Blog

The seller, SRS Microsystems, is an authorized Pentax B&M in England.

To get back on topic...it is obvious that the hociR had no part in the making of this camera!!!

Cricket is hot, even in B&W ... love that eye highlight/dark shadow treatment.

Which one you looking' at, Parallax's or Racer's? Both are supremely edible, especially if you wrapped them in Velvita and Bacon,

Hi Rod
No, I've been otherwise occupied.
Just turned the TV on, but devoid of cricket at present.
