I ordered Alphas, Modifiers, Numpad, Blue Choices, Gray Choices, Blue Spacebars, Cadet, and Extension kits.
Ouch, that's a pricey meatball!   But, I don't think many would disagree that this is going to be one classy set. 

And though I'm getting more keys than I need to do so, I'm really looking forward to trying this set out on my future S7 Elephant keyboard.

Itís gonna look stunning on the S7. Good choice!

this render shows a row 2 "III" cap but when I look at the choices kits it's nowhere to be found...

It's a mistake in the renders. The kit pictures are precise. For Blue Choice kit, there is only hand cluster in the navigate area like:

Took a while to scrape the funds together, but order has been placed!

Now the wait begins. (First for my white CA66, and then the caps themselves...)

Kono Store Update: Symbiosis

https://kono.store/products/sa-symbiosis-keycaps

We are getting close to the end of the Group Buy and I have a few Kono updates.

All the sets except for CADR have performed approximately according to our pricing model - which means all of the sets (Except CADR) will be produced. Some sets were a little above the model, others a little below - but our estimates were accurate across the board. CADR is a bit of a complex set - since it is easily the most expensive one in the group buy and it uses all R3 keycaps so there is little crossover with other sets. There are a few days left in the group buy - so if people are interested in seeing CADR made - we would require approximately additional 20 additional sets to be purchased. If this doesn't happen over the next four days - we will refund all purchasers of CADR.

Our next steps will be to ensure that all of the colors are perfectly matched and that our production date for next July stays accurate. We will plan to place a purchase order for the entire group buy at the beginning of next week and then move to a "pre-order" phase on Kono for extras. During the pre-order - the prices will be slightly higher than during the group buy and there will be actual inventory limits as it is based on the actual number of kits we purchase + any extra inventory ordered by Kono.

We will keep the group updated via email as updates come in as well as via forum posts here and on Keebtalk - https://www.keebtalk.com/t/sa-symbiosis-r2/3548

If you purchased your Symbiosis kit via zFrontier or mykeyboard.eu - please contact them directly if you have questions.

Thanks for participating everyone - now the wait begins!

I talked to Kono about this. Almost all kits are gonna happen, and the sold numbers will not be showed for this GB.

If we are in for CADR and it fails will there be time for us to change to other orders? How will that be handled?

As Andrew said in his previous post, the order will be refunded. Since there are not many CADR buyers, and only part of them might change their orders in this case, it seems fine to simply refund so that the whole GB could move forward fast to the next phase. But anyway I will check with Andrew to see whether it's ok to have some time for you to change your order.

There will be extras available in Kono Store after the GB closes, but I'm not sure whether they are still available when it finishes production one year later. I guess you still have the chance the grab some kits in a few months.

Would it be possible to get a render with Nordic keys?
I get a feeling it might look a bit weird as all other alphas have dual signs but the three accent keys don't.

Ordered CADR and Alpha set and some modifier sets (40, ortho, and NoDe), from zFrontier, and hoping to use them for two keyboard builds.

If CADR doesn't happen, I'll likely like to withdraw some of the modifier sets I've ordered. Would be a real shame if CADR doesn't happen.

I have a lingering feeling that Kono, by having fixed prices, get all upside, and no downside: i.e. a set doesn't get into profitable quantity, -- they pull the plugg. A set "over-sells" -- they reap the benefits. I don't mean to sound... I was going to say "ungrateful", but lord knows we're paying for it so, not the right word here...

if CADR gets made, I won't be using the space bar, so it's up for grabs. As are German-specific keys.

Nope, otherwise I would have taken ortho kit.

Tried ortho, but couldn't stand constant transition from ortho to staggered and back. Didn't like ortho that much to change all the boards, so decided to stick with staggered.

It's not my problem since I've ordered only alphas, mods, and extensions but I have the same feeling as well. By not disclosing MOQ, the vendor said it commits to producing all kits. Now, they are saying CADR struggles for MOQ and may not make it. I understand the vendor is not obligated to do so, but buyers in a GB may expect more than this.

I talked to Andrew two days ago and he said he would post about letting CADR buyers to adjust their orders in one day or two after the GB closes if CADR doesn't happen.

I will check with him about the price points, how CADR's doing, etc.

Apologies for being straightforward, but it was just a bit confusing how kono store handles this. On one hand, they don't offer pricebreak for each MOQ hit since they said they already "considered" that into the price. But on the other hand, for kits that potentially not going to make it like the CADR, they would not let it go through. It's a win-win for the vendor and not very fair for the buyers. If we are charged with premium with no breakpoint, I expect all kits to be made since the prices already factor in everything. I remember one of the reason kono store would not off price breakpoint was due to the complexity across different vendors, and I completely understand that. However, it seems like zFrontier still manages to do it and offers breakpoint for their buyers.  I just don't see why Kono couldn't do the same?

I bought a few kits because I wanted to outfit a few of my boards. It is kinda weird for a GB to not disclose information about price breaks, although I wasnít worried too much about that. I think itís kind of out of the hands of hhkbp2, as Kono is running the buy. There should have been better communication from Kono themselves. I emailed them a while back about a different set I had questions about and they were pretty prompt on replying. I hope they can clear these questions up before the buy is over.

Yea no I totally agree with you. In the end, Kono is the vendor so they have all rights to practice any kind of pricing as they wish. Totally agree that hhkp2 has nothing to do with this, and I never brought him in. I just hope Kono could be more transparent with all the pricing and breakpoints and all. I mean I'm not complaining or anything as I already purchased a few kits myself but seeing other vendor could establish a breakpoint while we can't just makes me feel a little bit unfair that's all.

No, I totally agree with you too. I understand Kono is a business and was comfortable with the prices. It's just a little perculiar that another vendor has price breaks.

But it just says *some* kits have unlocked a lower price point and that zFrontier will refund the difference after the GB ends.

Which kits will be cheaper, and by how much, we still don't know. At least at Kono, you get to see how much you'll be paying upfront (and avoid losing CC fees in the refund).

I'm assuming zFrontier will just be refunding the price difference between them and Kono, since Kono reduced their prices for some kits early on whereas zFrontier did not.

There are things out of my knowing and expectation, some are in the good side, while some other are in the opposite side. I had checked with Andrew(Kono Store) and confirm:

1. CADR will be made. So we succeeded to make all kits happen, no more order adjustment is necessary due to MOQ failure.
2. The price points issue that Zfrontier mentioned before was due to communication mistakes.
3. The GB was closed and it's moved to "pre-order" phase. You could still buy the available kits but the prices would be higher than what's in GB phase.
4. The production order is about to placed to SP

Kono(or Zfrontier) will handle the issue and post updates later. I beg your understanding and pardon for all the issues and confusion.

Thanks for everyone who gave feedback, contributed, helped or joined this project(GB/pre-order). We succeeded to make all kits! Cheers!

CADR will be made. So we succeeded to make all kits happen, no more order adjustment is necessary due to MOQ failure.
Thanks for everyone who gave feedback, contributed, helped or joined this project(GB/pre-order). We succeeded to make all kits! Cheers!
Fantastic! Thanks!

Not sure if this is the place to announce this, but: I can already now say that I'll be happy to trade out my CADR space bar, and any german specific keys that don't overlap with scandinavian, from the NorDe kit. Also, if anyone has an extra 1u Top or 1u Greek, or 2u blank R3, I'm interested in buying/trading, once we get the kits, just send me a PM. Also, I'll have a lot of 1.5 u keys I don't need.

1. CADR will be made. So we succeeded to make all kits happen, no more order adjustment is necessary due to MOQ failure.
2. The price points issue that Zfrontier mentioned before was due to communication mistakes.
3. The GB was closed and it's moved to "pre-order" phase. You could still buy the available kits but the prices would be higher than what's in GB phase.
4. The production order is about to placed to SP

Thank you for the update. We understand your situation. If the kits are still available till Q2 next year, I may consider grabbing more :p

Would it be possible to get a render with Nordic keys?
I get a feeling it might look a bit weird as all other alphas have dual signs but the three accent keys don't.

Sorry I don't know what's the proper way to put those Nordic keys in usage. I don't have the time to do the render now neither. Maybe you could take a look at what's in R6 pictures and see how they feels?

R6 pictures

Keep in mind that the legends might be different more or less. But it should be enough to give you the brief feel .

My goodness, that wait is going to be excruciating.
But well worth it.
