Hi Everyone,

We have taken delivery of our first shipment of the K-7, 18-55WR & 50-200WR

Body price - £1179

Body + 18-55WR - £1199

Body + 18-55WR + 50-200WR - £1299

D-BG4 Grip - £215

We are still waiting for batteries.

We didn't receive our full allocation, but we should have enough for the majority of pre-orders. There is a second shipment early next week which covers all of our pre-orders.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

It would be better to see nice prices. Too expensive for me at the moment. When it hits sub £800 I'll consider it.

I expect the SRS prices will be as good as any. I think you might be waiting a while! Having said that, I'm waiting for it to go somewhere below 1000GBP, which I hope will not be too long, given that the body appears to be a little over 800GBP in Japan (have seen this) and Australia (I could be mistaken!).

I may be waiting a while, I think.

Jon.

I'm not going to argue with you there!

Fingers crossed there will also be a similar cashback scheme sometime in the future like there was for me when I got the K20D last Jan.

No disrespect to you Chris but that is a crazy price

The K20 (body only)was only about £650 when it was first released here and if I am not mistaken it was about the same over there, so whats changed and how did they come up with that price Its got me baffled

Clarky, I've spoken with Chris and he is fully aware of the contentious price issue for the body. Probably the best way of putting it is that it is out of his hands

Peter think about buying it in a Euro land. It is cheaper. The French have it already, and it must be here soon. The cheapest I've seen it here is €1049.

I would hang on to the K20 for a while yet and see what happens to the price on the K-7, theres no way I would touch it at that price.

The K20 is still fetching pretty good prices over here, around £500 with kit lens, which will go a long way to recouping some of the £750 I outlayed for the K-7, it won't even cover half your costs

I did see one company advertising flights to Oz last week for £1...makes you think about your options
