in some places i've seen the 555 at 720 € and more!!!!

720 Eur = US$ 800!!

Yep, very expensive.

I'd expect the street price in NY to be about $500 soon. Maybe you
should take trip to New York

I'll ask if some of my friends is going to travel to USA before november, because i hope to use it in my travel to Paris,i'm looking for international stores as well

I guess that i'll see the 555 in the next weeks, look the answer that i've received from the Pentax representative in Spain:


Dicho modelo empezará a comercializarse en el SONIMAG ( http://www.sonimag.com ) feria de Imagen
de BCN del 1 al 5 de octubre. En cuanto a los problemas de ruidos hay que
tener en cuenta que se trata de una evolución con lo cual el modelo habrá
resuelto todos los problemas existentes.

I'f you don't understand spanish:

  • The cameras will be available in that Fair.

  • The noise problemas there will be resolved because this model is an evolution.

Fortunately i'm going to Barcelona in that days so i have a good reason to go to SONIMAG.

Any another camera that i have to review??? Perhaps i don't buy my camera in SONIMAG, but i'm sure that i'll have a better decission.

BTW. check out the prices for asseccories - SD cards etc.

Yeah very important issue.

Best Regards
