Stupid comments about K3-iii price.

The Ricoh CEO suggested the price would be somewhere towards 200,000 yen. For reference the K1 is 270,000 yen or 350,000 with the 28-105 lens

So the new camera is somewhere between 1/2 and 3/4 of the price of the K1.

The K1 on B&H lists for $1800  - which would ~ 190,000 yen. That's right the Japanese price is ~50% more than the US price.

So anyone quoting $1900  - $100 more than the K1 - as the expected price of the the new camera, please don't take a ball park number for a Japanese audience and divide by the exchange rate

I've been saying $1100 +/- $100 or 2/3 the price of the K1 so nicely in that 1/2-3/4 range, and the same figure with different currency symbols in Europe (€1100) and the UK (£1200). Although Europe and Japan tend to quote figures including local sales taxes and the US tends not to.
