thx1138: $7K for a 560 f/5.6 that has poor mfd, no IS and a cheaper telescope type design that was supposed to keep costs down. Seriously if the street price is not closer to $3K it's dead in the water.
In lens IS works better that in body.
The price of 18-270 better come down too since its probably the same as the Tamron 18-270 which can be found for £278 ($444)On OTHER camera systems and not Pentax :(
I do get the impression that even with good cameras, Pentax will ultimately fail due to the lack of competitive lenses.
Its a tough market out there...
VERY impressive and great shot!!!
