K-3 II Pricing

Haven't noticed this comment elsewhere, but feel free to delete me if I'm duplicating! However, here in the UK, the pre-order price for the K-3II (body only) is exactly the same price as the K-3. Unless I wanted a flash, what reason could there be for buying a K-3? Genuine question.

Yeah it looks like the K-3II is priced the same as K-3.

K-3 prices should plummet soon, I think.

And that's when I'll enter the market...

Unless anyone here wants to get rid of their used K3 at a reasonable price

Because most of us are unable to live without the pop up flash.

Likely because the K-3 is a little bit more pricey in the UK than in other regions. 769 pounds is a great price for the K-3 II, though!

That will highly depend in which part of the world one lives. I don't have much hope that I will be able to get a new K3 over here for less than $1000; current price roughly $1300 for body only.

I have one I thought was sold but the guy flaked out today. About 300 clicks and mint for $600 and the unused grip too for another $100....Pm me if interested.

Sounds good.

Add shipping, vat and import duties and it will probably between 1000 and 1100

I hope somebody else jumps on your offer.
