Aye, thanks for that I had seen them, are you going to pull the trigger then on one for yourself, or you've already done that.
Hello kerrowdown,

I will be getting my own closer to year-end.

The one I shot with was sent down to Pentax Malaysia because they are attending a major birding event here (Raptor Watch 2013). The instruction manual is in Mandarin (Chinese) so I guess it was initially meant for China, Taiwan or Hongkong. I guess Pentax Malaysia must have insisted very strongly to get one meant for another country.

Initial production units usually go to Pentax's major markets first, like Japan, USA, Europe, China, ...
Malaysia is usually very near the bottom for new stuff to be shipped here.

Wow, I just noticed that you have a fantastic collection of A lenses. These are next to impossible/impossible to find here. Should have taken you some time to find them.

Just to show you I'm really old, I bought most of these new when they first came out and I'm still using them yet.
