Pentax K-x Discontinued
Major retailers running out of stock

Earlier this month, Pentax Japan announced that the K-x as well as the K-7 were being discontinued.
This can now be felt over in the U.S., as major retailers such as B&H and Adorama have run out of all K-x stock and markedl the camera as discontinued. Amazon still appears to have a handful of cameras left, but those won't last long. For those who are desperate, the K-x can still be purchased in ugly colors or a dual lens kit from the Pentax Web Store, for about $50 less than the K-r.
The K-7 remains readily available. We believe that this is due to its lower popularity and shared design with the K-5.
