I missed the boat on the first k10 shipments :(

There must have been a huge pre-order at the place I deal with because they could only fill 2/3 of the order..... of course I am in the final 1/3
hoping a new shipment will be in before christmas.
on the other hand, I am close to having my wife buying the k100..... hopefully she will let me play with it (comes with kit lens and highspeed memory cards)

I have another feeling that once I get the k10 with the 17-70mm sigma, she might want to trade me more often.....
oh well, that's life

cheers

That is the same everywhere. Good luck with your second shipment. This is in deed a good camera to wait for.

Another possibility would be to order from 17th street photo or Cameta Camera in New York. Both have the k10 in stock. I ordered mine yesterday and I will have it on tuesday, I am very excited.

Thank you for the info.
the thing is, if I buy in the USA, I don't get the Canadian Pentax 2 year warranty. (USA is only one year)

cheers

I got my sigma 70-200 f2.8 from cameta auctions, prompt delivery and great communications!

So much cheaper than buying this lens in australia. australian pentax lenses are either unavailable or too expensive.

I really like cameta auctions!

Only 1 year warranty for both the camera and sigma lens though. But cameta answered my emails promptly. The extended 3 year warrantee costs about 75 dollars or so.

It is about US 799 dollars for sigma 70-200 f2.8 while australian price is about 1000 US dollars if not more. UPS delivery was prompt and fast, delivered within 4 days to Australia.

I obtained the rest of my limited lenses from bhphoto, prompt and efficient as well.

Now I am waiting for the other two websites deliverying my forthcoming lenses: one is cambridgeworld.com which is pathetic and a scam. The other one is Kohscamera.com that has fantastic customer service and prompt delivery!!
