K1 price increase

Has anyone else noticed that the price of the K-1 has gone up from 1599 to 1799 on srsmicrosystems? Has there been any word from Ricoh about this? I'm glad I picked mine up when I did!!

It is probably a price adjustment due to currency (UK Pound vs Japanese Yen) because of Brexit...

You can still order for 1599 from Mifsuds, although they don't currently have stock

the odd thing is (on srs) that the lenses haven't changed in price - the 70-200 has actually gone don by 200 - and that's down as 'awaiting stock' so they're not just getting through old stock - that makes it look more like a manufacturer price increase for the K-1 (or manufacturer price drop for the lens)

So who is surprised by this Brexit consequence ? Noboby, I assume. At least the price in the UK of second hand gear should increase so selling unwanted equipment will offset these rises a little.

obviously selling well -- supply and demand drive the price of things.
