I've pre-ordered the normal K-3 and the D-BG5 from a local store here in Finland. Interestingly enough they list the limited K-3 for the same price as the normal K-3 + battery grip + extra battery (1499€ vs 1487€).

hand strap
Hi Paul

Let me know if you can workout your handstrap. I have put mine in the puzzle box. There are no instructions just a couple of online photos to look at.

Just sold one of my K-5s today so I will preorder from Henrys Monday..
Great! I've got one coming. When we get them I'll wander over your way to shoot eagles. We can either rejoice or commiserate.

I ordered the BG from B&H and loaded up with a few extra items in the same order - eg extra battery (way cheaper than in Oz), hand strap, etc - to get the best value out of the shipping charge.
Thanks Paul, I looked at the B&H site after Rawr suggested we do so. The cheapest freight I could get was $36 or so... that's an 18% surcharge on the cost of the grip...I could of course do as you did and just get more stuff to amortise the freight, but I already have 6 or 7 batteries...and more gear than is probably sane to admit to....

I'd rather get a batt grip locally if I can, but CRK don't seem to know when they will have some stock.

Which handstrap? I've ordered an OP/TECH OP/TECH USA Grip Strap 6701242 B&H Photo Video

These seem pretty straightforward from the PDF instructions from the manufacturer.

Thanks Lars and ChrisJ,

I tried the two Swedish shops but I'm having to rely on Google to translate and cannot even figure out whether they will deliver to my country. Tried also SRS but they deliver to only some EU countries, well most of them actually but not mine :-(

I have sent them an email anyway as in the past I have purchased stuff from them on eBay and never had problems with delivery.
I've just pressed the 'send money' button. Took me some time to find someone who will ship to my country, Clifton Cameras in the UK. Fortunately I could not find a silver one
