Hope this isn't against forum rules but I got an e-flyer from Henrys (http://www.henrys.com) and they are having an online sale of the GX-1s. $699 Canadian. Sale began at 1pm today and continues until Monday at midnight. 75 units only.

Regards, Rich

Hi Roy;

The link doesn't work because the forum software included the final ")" in the link address...

I have no idea if the price is great... I assumed it was because most Henry's prices are competitive except against deep-discount US stores. I bought my Optio 550 and my DS2 from them.

Rich

Also, the price is $699 Canadian on both "sites" with a tiny * that says the price is in CAD$

1US$ = about $1.139CAD$, so the US price would be about $613USD

Isnt the Pentax K110D very similiar the the Pentax DS2/Samsung GX-1s? If so, bhphoto.com has it for $559.99

Or you can get the Pentax K100D with Anti-Shake(SR) body for about $16 more at $629.99. Maybe even cheaper since the shipping in Canada to USA might be more then what bhphoto.com will offer for US customer.
