Due to lower volumes, the retailers usually cannot afford to have a "display" set. But you can try Emjay at peninsula plaza or join the monthly Pentax outings. The one just over had a few k-x in the group. :)

Thanks for your reply ! i will surely join the pentax outing after i got my cam, in 1-2wks time :)

I am only looking at k-x and a500, but pentax is more value for money since both using 'same' sensor. Branding and lens selection doesnt matter, since i dun intend to buy all ! :bsmilie:

Does the k-x white comes with white kit lens? does it look weird with black color lens in real life?

The white definitely looks cool and different from the usual black SLRs. From fellow Pentaxian's reply, the white k-x will come with the nice white kit-lens.

I feel black lenses look great on the white body as well, coz the grip is black already, as well as the dials and buttons.

you can refer to our last outing thread and see some white k-x in action, with black lenses as well ;)

don't forget the red and blue ones are coming next week!
I was previously looking for the blue one but they said they will not bring it in but I guess now they change their mind seeing how popular the coloured options are. :)

thanks bro, tml after work i will go down take a look. Tml will be my 3days in a row going down to city hall look for k-x :bsmilie:
city hall not so far from sim lim square, you can try calling OP as well, see if they have anything that you can try if you don't manage to get emjay or any retailers there , i.e. alan photo, cathay photo, john 3:16..

number if you don't already have it 63391035

another alternative is tk foto, at shaw tower near suntec.

Yup..their service is pretty decent considering they do not speak english very well. I got my K-x from them too. But if you have issues with them previously, SLR-revloution opp John3:16 in Funan Centre has the lowest price of $942 plus the lady behind the counter is pretty too ;p
However, I did not see any sets when I was there last week.
BTW, if anyone drops by SLR revolution do ask if they have a website and what is their contact number so that Gengh can update his pricelist and retailer detail.
Cheers
