How Much Time Between Body Announcement and Kit Avaiability?

What is the typical amount of time elapsed between the announcement of a new Pentax body and the availability of a kit (the new body and a lens)? That should give me a rough idea of when the kits will be available.

With the K-1, it took over 10 years.

Otherwise, only a few months.

It can be anywhere from available a few days after announcement, to available a few months later.
FF is a new line of cameras so K-1 is announced much earlier than FI a replacement for K-3 II would be.

Pre-orders of K-1 will probably be available at the mid/end of April, and take a few more weeks if not pre-ordering.
