You can order your K20D / K200D here:

Are there any Japanese readers here on this forum?

I do not understand Japanese, however it looks like you can order the new cameras here:
Pentax Online Shop/デジタルカメラ/デジタル一眼レフ

Is there somebody that explain the red japanese text under the cameras?
It might reveil expected delivery dates or something like that.

What is interesting is the price difference between the K10D and the K20D bodies:
114,800 Yen for the K10D versus 149,800 Yen for the K20D!!
That would imply a price difference of only exactly 30%....

Since I can find K10D's here for 619, does that mean I can expect to upgrade for 805??

I don't speak Japanese, but I know how to find out what the text says.

Here's the trick. Right click the link, and get it's properties... in this case you want th url. Or just go to the url and copy it once there. In this case, the url is: url=

Now go to Google and Google the URL. Seriously. It'll find it. Since it's a Japanese page, Google will offer to translate for you... click the [ Translate this page ] link and viola! You have a passable translation. In this case, the text says something like:

※ scheduled for release in early March. Currently reservationist. Shipping has not yet been scheduled. Taken as soon as you.

Sounds to me like they are accepting pre-orders with expected shipping of product in early March. Price: 149,800 yen which is today $1,402.42 USD.

Not bad for a non-Japanese speaker, eh?

※ 3月上旬発売予定。現在予約受付中です。出荷予定は未定です。決まり次第ご連絡いたします。

Expected release in early March. Now accepting pre-orders. Shipping date is undecided. We will contact you when the shipping date has been decided.

Same for the K200D, except the expected release is in late February.

。レウレナキサヤセ。ロPentax K20D 、ホク。コキイフ。ァトフネホ。ヲ・、・・ソ。シ・ヘ・テ・ネ・キ・逾テ・ヤ・・ー

Order through them before, strangely you can have it shipped to any Japan address, even if you pay with a foreign visa card (not all sellers accept card, watch out for the little icon
