    Tiger Airways- Lowest fares to Singapore, Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan

    a round trip from HongKong to Singapore and back is only 300 SGD = 1500 HKD, (book at least 1 month advance for cheap deals)
    while K-1 is around 900 SGD = 4500 HKD,

    so I guess you get a K-1 here and also a good chance to travel around SG.

    Thank you for your suggestion, but (1) I want it ASAP & (2) the Singapore to HK$ has gone up to 6.2, not 5..... Yes 20% more expensive now thanks to weaker US$. Oh well, I tried to go B&H and Adorama, but they don't have yellow in stock... Any dealers willing to help from Singapore??? Please......

    I heard there's quite a lot of Pentax users in Singapore. That's a good thing to have as we can see that you guys get the first batch from Pentax's initial manufacturing run. Hong Kong's sole distributor, Jebsen is not very good with their (over)pricing and (under)promotion and we are totally silent with this K-01 release! Jebsen is not helping themselves as their after service is not very good compare to Canon's & Nikon's (i.e. slow repair). I won't be surprised that Jebsen is stuck with too many K-5 in their inventory and try to move them out before they bring in K-01.....

    Just got my yellow k-01 at SLR @ Funan. They still have stock. You can check with them.

    since you are in China, you have the best online market, taobao, and they got k-01 in yellow, and ship to HK of course.

    but seems the price difference compared to SG is around 150 SGD different, so you can try the link above if you dont want to fly to Singapore.

    I also like to fly to Hong Kong as there are so many old film camera stuffs there in the street shops.
