Hola Jack

Buenos Dias Ernesto,

Regarding the new 7MP Optio camera here is some information received
from our Pentax rep:

Please find attached information regarding the all New Optio 750 Z.

Information for this product is as follows:

Suggested Selling Price: $999.99 CDN

I have to wait for the price in Euros, but it looks that would be
more than the price that i paid for my O555.

The camera shares many accessories with the Optio 555 including the
DL17 battery, AC7U AC Adapter, and USB7 cable.

Good news, having a lot of spare batteries would be interesting

I'm not completly convinced since the 750 have less wide angle than
the O555

Hola Ernesto,

The difference in the wide angle is a mere 2.5mm (Optio 555 was
35mm - 185mm and the Optio 750 Z is 37.5mm - 187.50mm) so
there will be no discernable difference.

but now i have more doubts about wait or send to repair,

just wait what Reflecta says about reparations.....

I have been there and done that with a few camera's in my lifetime
and just had a customer in yesterday with the same quandary. Best
thing to do is to get an repair estimate and then balance that price
out against the "actual" selling price of the Optio 750 Z or a new
Optio 555, , if you can find one.

My goal is to have a operative camera at the end of the year

Hopefully you will not have to wait that long.
