Quote for a K-30 Kit

I am going to be buying a new Pentax camera kit around the 15th of May. I know that Pentax uses Minimum Advertised Pricing on lenses, but that many vendors will sell them for less if you call in. I also know they just increased the MAP, but that the lenses are available various places at the old prices. I want to know your minimum price for the following items, bought all at once, shipped to Florida: I already posted this question to the contact e-mail from the B&H website, but thought I should post it here as well.

Pentax K-30 with 18-135 kit bundle
Pentax DA10-17 fisheye lens
Pentax D-FA50mm Macro
Pentax DA50 f1.8

The three lenses I want also qualify for instant rebates if bought with the camera. If you sell this kit for the old prices, with the instant rebates, the pricing would be:

K-30 bundle: $947
DA10-17: $530 - $200 instant rebate = $330
D-FA50 macro: $450 - $150 instant rebate = $300
DA50 1.8: 247 - $139 instant rebate = $108

I have rounded up to the nearest dollar.

Please let me know if you would be willing to sell me this kit for $1685 (or less!). If not, what is the minimum price you can offer me? I'm not expecting an answer on a public forum, so please e-mail me at kozlok1 ATSIGN hotmail DOT com. If you can't quote a lower price in writing, but can over the phone, please e-mail me for my phone number.

Also, Adorama has the K-30 kit including a $100 gift certificate for the same price. Can you match that as well? I have bought from you before, and prefer to give you my business, but $100 difference is significant.

As a second question, I will be buying my camera in Florida, but will be in New Mexico by summer. Can I buy the extended warranty once I arrive there? I know I can't in Florida because of stupid laws.

Thanks in advance!

The warranty has to be bought within 30 days of your original purchase. You can probably get it shipped to FL and then use it in NM once you're there, if needed.

While I'm sure the in-store price on the fisheye is slightly lower, don't get your hopes up too high, as the new MSRP price is $649 (aka 449 with the rebate, rather than the old 529).
