    the slot physical dimension is meant for AA, but need adapter to use...
    its like a CF slot but use SD card instead and to use CF card u need a adapter...

    The AA adapter should be bundle together with the camera if you ask me...

    I agree. Its quite silly not to include it because only a small minority of K-r owners will go to the trouble and expense of buying the original Pentax adapter which, I'm sure, will be quite expensive.

    Hoping that third party manufacturers will be able to provide us with a decent alternative at a more reasonable cost soon.

    Had this adapter been included in the box, I'm sure a lot of users would find it more convenient to use AA cells when the original Lithium Ion battery eventually runs down during a shoot.

    Else a second pre-charged Lithium Ion battery can suffice too.

    I thought of that too.
    But I dont wish to make everyone happy, to realise its still expensive.

    I just read that "This is a New Item, Not in stock yet, expecting delivery from Manufacturer." for the battery adapter.
    But I believe they have stock for the Lithium battery though.

    Awaiting reply, lets see how it goes.

    just went to AP funan, they said they have K-r batteries.

    original $ 100++
    compatible 3rd party = half the price of it (stronger battery, thats what they said)

    100 dollars for the batt? Mad. But I know that some other brands' original batteries are probably around the same price.

    Do you know the 3rd party brand name? The last time FW review the DivX one, appears really good. Is it the same brand?

    oh dear....

    ok, 3rd party it is then.

    the 3rd party probably has a higher maH rating, but from experience, doesn't necessarily mean it will last longer. (on other cams, of course)

    if we are doing a mass order for the aa adapter for the k-r, count me in... hopefully the mass order can give all of us a good discount
