    Pentax needs to have 100 different colours plastic resin for the molding process to produce these bodies. However, not sure how they overcome the economy of scale.
    The K-X looks like a fashion statement with it's multi colours options. Which users' groups they are targeting?

    This product is presently obtained directly from manufacturer on demand. Please allow an extra 1-3 working days for sourcing.

    From manufacturer means from Pentax? is it not??

    PS: some punt intended in my blog post enjoy it while we can before RH take a stab on reporting RED HOT issues and problems with color. Congratulation to all of us Pentaxians who stay put in Pentax.


    Thanks,

    Hey Hin,

    I like the white w/ red grip one too. If only someone could help me get one from JP. Probably just use vPostJapan to do the order.

    Wah. Haven't been here for the past week and this comes around.

    Sure looks like a fun entry-level camera with all those "Holga-esque" colours. Dunno if I should get one as a back-up camera. But at the current price, I'd rather get another K10D and pimp it myself.

    Then again, this step proves that the new tagline isn't just for show.
    Brand loyalty? Pffttt...| Got Flickr?
    I shoot JPEG (got a problem with that?)

    Can Emjay special order our preference, something like a pre-order with deposit?
    Can perhaps save on shipping and derive better bulk pricing.

    Hmm.. Amazon Japan listing the K-x standard kit for JPY 69800 which is SG$1078, significantly more expensive than the US price of USD 649 which is (now) SG$916

    I think you can get 10% rebate from Amazon Japan though which makes it about SG$970

    Not sure which end of the price scale it will be when Emjay brings it in...
