What's the difference between a G5 and a G5KK?
I think the last two letters may just indicate its a US model as opposed to a european or Japanese model. I know European models are restricted to under 30 mins of continous video recording due to local regulations.
maybe someone else can provide a more precise answer
I also believe it has something to do with the kit lens. When I was shopping for a GH2 it had letters like "KK" to designate what came with which kit.
"K" for Black body, "K" for kit lens. For example, the body only version is DMC-G5KBODY
I believe the first K indicates that the camera is black, and the second K indicates that it comes with the kit lens.
I think it might actually be the other way around, since kuroi means "black" in Japanese, and shiroi means "white" (silver in this case? or it's just the English) and the silver model is the DMC-G5KS.
Maybe they use "K" because "B" might be confused for blue?
Nah, what you said makes much more sense than that. Haha.
Or what's the model called in Japan? I was just throwing a wild guess.
Sounds reasonable. Thanks, guys.
Separate names with a comma.
