Wow! That's more than I had expected you would get for it. Congrats, I know you'll love the K5 when you get it.

congrats, now the waiting is on for the new, at least it has the same look and feel, although its a quite different camera.

Hi Tony,

Congrats on the sale, and impending purchase of a K-5! You'll love it, I'm quite sure.

I bought my K-5 from Amazon (not one of their participating dealers). They seem to be primarily motivated by turning inventory, and periodically reduce prices to move stock regardless of demand and industry factors like favorable reviews and such. They have a liberal return policy, so there's little risk.

I got mine in Dec of last year when there was little price movement from the majority of dealers, but paid less than $1400 shipped (and could even get it via 2-day shipping for under that price). They were the first to meet my price requirements, and as it turned out, it would have been quite a while before they would be offered for the same or less again. I monitored prices from a number of reliable sources for quite a while, and jumped on it when I got the price I wanted to see.

Good luck in your shopping!

Scott

I bought my K5 locally - the only real store that carries Pentax in L.A. matched Amazon's price (bought in December, the discount wasn't huge but it was enough to think twice about). I like to buy locally, give them some volume for Pentax and also because I like to touch and feel things. So I'll give a local store a chance to sell me something first. However, I bought the K7 from Amazon (and they were great when I returned the first one), and a number of other cameras and lenses from B&H. I've only ordered one lens from Adorama, but wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
