  • What do these letters mean?

    I'm finally going to full fill my long held wish to buy a PEN F - Yeh!
    However checking out the various selling website I noticed some PEN Fs have the letters ZF and others XK. What is this all about?

    I'm not sure, but iy could be to do with the colour. Black or silver.

      Don't wish to be discouraging but hasn't the Pen-F just been classed as discontinued.

      I do presume however that, if that is the case and you really want one, prices should be dropping soon and you should get a bargain if you wait a little while.

        The pen-F is a cracking camera. I can actually see the prices climbing over the coming months as stocks dry up. Seriuosly thinking of buying a second body, to keep as a spare for the future as there isnt an Mk2 coming.

          Before looking it up, I'm going to guess ZF is Silver & XK is Black. Now I'll do some research.

            The best new price in Australia that I can see comes from DigiDirect with limited stock of Silver models & Black in stock.

              It's because of that very reason I have finally made the move.

                Thanks - Seems these letters appear only on ads from Hong Kong (in ebay), don't seem to be related to the colour.

                  Fully agree, I've been following the second hand market for some time now. These only appear occasionally and the prices aren't much below the lowest new price.

                    As long as you knew, that's all that matters.
                    I hope you get a great price and that you will have years of fun with it.
