Mine arrived today and it's worth mentioning two things: the instructions are in French only and the mains lead to the charger has a European plug. You can download the quick-start guide and full operating manual in English from the Ricoh website. The power cable has a standard figure-of-eight IEC-320 type C7 connector, available from eBay or other outlets if you don't have one. I'm using the cable that came with my GX-20 (and presumably K20) charger. The case is pretty good and tripod's a little table-top job with flexible legs. All in all, a super deal.

Yes, mine came, too, from Amazon.fr -- I say 'mine', but I ordered it for my daughter and so reluctantly I'll be passing it along. Only the quick start guide is in French, the full manual in English is on the the accompanying CD. Mind you, it's all pretty obvious to anyone who's ever handled a Pentax, though I was stumped for a bit by the pop-up flash and its cunningly concealed release catch. I charged the battery using a shaver socket for the Euro plug -- but have just order an adaptor for 1.70 postage included.

I won't be seeing said daughter until Sunday, so I'll have some fun meanwhile. The quality of the few test jpegs I've shot so far is remarkably high for such a small sensor.
Regards, Christopher

Mine (well mine for setup only!) arrived today too. Card is a Class 4 Sandisk, tripod is tiny table job but overall looking like a good deal. If you don't fancy an adapter you can search for a "figure 8 mains lead" ie:

Just had a little play, the IQ is amazing for the sensor size, nice feel, thinking about printing out the manual for its new owner.Comment Image

Or just leave it in PDF format for her to load on her phone or tablet?

I have pdf copies of all my manuals on my phone and tablet; much handier 'in the field'.
