Any deal on the genuine K-R charger?
I really don't like Pentax chargers with the cords. I prefer the flip out plug on most other brands chargers and the aftermarket ones.

I have two of those somewhere. I need to find them. Meanwhile if I plan to travel abroad, I will definitely need the 120V-240V generic charger.

I'm pleased your K-30 is on its way to you, Chip. After seeing your post, I cancelled my order. I ordered the same day as you and they still could not give me an estimate on when my order would ship. It has been a full business day in Singapore, and they have not yet processed my refund.

On the bright side, my K-30 kit will be arriving from Amazon today! Now if only I had the money to pay for it.
Lori, sorry you had to cancel your order - I too am wondering how I'll pay for mine!!

I order the da 18-135 on Monday morning. And I received the lens today (Thursday). 3 days delivery from Singapore to Perth Australia is not bad I think. Come with lens hood, warranty card and invoice etc. happy.

I just got a reply from them regarding the grip. It's NOT the OEM grip but a third party one.

Very sad to report that I just got an email indicating they are out of stock of K-30s due to so many orders. They are expecting another shipment in 7-10 days. I said to go ahead and keep my order active but if there would be any more delay to please let me know. So disappointing as I thought I'd have my K-30 soon....
Jeffw - above is a quote from Loco with some out of stock info from Pentax Singapore - quote is from July 26.

If you are on Facebook, try messaging their Pentax Singapore account there. They are quicker to answer questions using that method. I got tired of waiting for the camera to come back in stock, so I cancelled. Original form of payment was PayPal, but used credit card for most of it (had a PayPal balance as well).

Got my K-30 today!! I'm stoked! So far, everything seems to work as it should.

I didn't realize how small it is - it's about the same size as an *ist DL/DS - quite a bit smaller than my K20D. It'll take me awhile to get used to the smaller package. But I will!

Details of the order for those that might be interested:
- Ordered July 26
- Shipped July 31
- Cleared customs Aug 2 (Anchorage)
- Arrived Austin, TX area Aug 3 - about 1 PM.

Can't wait to really give it some work!

My thanks to frank for posting the info on this buy and to Metalmania for his info on how to fill out the customs form!! Two thumbs up!!
