The pre-release price of the new k-1 is currently being shown as the same as the current k-1. So my expectation is the current k-1 will drop in price. Any clues or ideas to when and by how much ...

So there will be a drop for the K-1 I assume from this price anomaly. It's just what ...I'd prefer the K-1.

They may just recall all the dealers K-1 bodies and turn them into the K-1 MKII.

I suspect we will see the refurbished and upgraded bodies on SRS for around 1500 plus in a few weeks. SRS are giving a generous Part-Ex and the cost of the upgrade won't be 450 for them (perhaps 250 to 300 as a guess) so a new market of "Up-Furbs" will be created

They might just re-cycle them as iPhones

Just had a confirmation of Pentax Belgium: the last batch of K-1 will be discounted at 1799, while the K-1 II will be 1999. This is really good news!
