MSRP vs. Street
In reply to DrugaRunda, Sep 13, 2010

£500 more and you are at D700 level...

tricky, tricky... I guess the size is the main selling point here.
common sense is anything but common

In the US the launch MSRP of the D700 was $2999. If the launch MSRP of the K-5 is $1699, that roughly 56% of the launch price of the D700. Unless you're talking current street prices, which is unfair to the K-5 since it doesn't have a real street price yet. Wait a few months at least for a more fair comparison.
