Did the KP actually get cheaper or did they just stop including all the grips?

I've seen conflicting info on this. On some sites I've heard that the US version ships with all three grips. On other sites I've heard that only early shipments came with all three grips... which would explain why the price has now dropped.

Do current US versions ship with all three grips, at the new price?

Price dropped to 799 euros here in Finland which is a huge drop.

But is that a real price reduction or does it just reflect them no longer including the optional grips (which are grossly over-valued).

I thought the extra grips only came with US cameras. Ricoh apparently thought Americans have bigger hands or something. The rest of the world they were sold separately.

(a) the US models come with all the grips
(b) there is currently a $100 rebate on both the silver and black models, likely until the end of December only

B&H now has a holiday special for the silver KP also at $879.99, and a deal on the DA 20-40mm Limited lens as well. I think it is $200 off.

FWIW, I got my new black KP for about $900 delivered, including two batteries, 3 grips, an SD card, a flash, a nifty back pack, a mini-tripod, and a partridge in a pear tree.
