Custom Colour KX arrives from Japan

I can highly recommend Japan Exposures for people wanting a custom coloured KX.


japan exposures | a personal introduction to Japanese photography

Mine arrived today, 5 days earlier than expected, in perfect condition and it looks fantastic. It was well packed safe and secure.

Manual is in Japanese, but the camera is set to English no problems and ill just download a pdf manual.

I got silver with brown handle, and it looks great with black lenses. I'm yet to get any limited silver ones.

Camera batteries working great, with eneloops in there.

The new K-x looks great.

Which kit lens is up for grabs? If it's the 55-300, I'd be interested...

i've got the 18-55 with the k20d on ebay

and im holding onto the 55-300mm for now, as it seems to be surprisingly good.

I was hoping you wouldn't discover that the 55-300 DA L was actually a good performer. It was worth a try.

I just visited the site. 79800 Yen for Kx with 18-55 lens. This is about AUD $970 excluding postage. A bit pricey dont u think?

with the 55-300mm and 18-55mm kit as well its better value.
I dont think you can expect to get a custom colour kx without a premium?

OP, wouldn't it be better to post an actual photograph of your new camera instead of pasting a stock image taken from the website. :ugh:

It's 69800 list (more like 63,000 after discount), so you are paying at least a 10,000 yen premium to the intermediary. Ebay might be cheaper. (I used to have a listing for such, but after eBay and Paypal fees I'd not be able to do it any cheaper so I gave up)
