K10D availability in Britain alert

I decided to get hold of a K10D before the new models pushed them off the market hoping for a reduced price. I discovered that all the independent photography shops on the South Wales/Engand border along with major chains like Jessops, Currys, Comet etc were right out of them and never likely to restock.
I eventually picked up the very last one at Argos in Cardiff for 450 including the lens, but I fear it was a close-run thing.

I can now say a tearful farewell to my lovely K100D, satisfied that it will still be in the house as I am giving it to my wife, with a year's worth of gratitude for some wonderful photographic experiences and for finally laying to rest my hankering after my old MX.

The K10D, even at this early stage, has utterly impressed me. I feel I have finally found my ultimate camera.
For heaven's sake, if you want one, get cracking, before they all disappear.
