K3miii on Amazon

Some interesting status changes:

  • The black K3iii no longer has a price or pre-order button (there's a 3rd party source listing it as 3898)
  • The Silver still has a price (although it's gone up to 2199), and says it will ship on 29 April
  • Neither Premium sku appears at all. If Amazon had those, they're gone.

One possible interpretation: the K3iii is doing pretty well.

Amazon has sold out it's initial black K3iii shipment. It doesn't want to be selling any more until it has a follow-up shipment scheduled--or at least one that will satisfy the orders it's already booked.

If Amazon had Premiums, they're simply gone (sold out). As one-time-only initial release kits, no point in still listing them at all.

There are still a few Silvers available--but not so many as to make Amazon worry about listing it at lowest price.

I just hope that everyone who's complained about the K-3iii delay actually buys one. One wonders, otherwise, about the sincerity of their complaints.
