I got quoted 1399$ by a well-known camera shop in Montreal. It seems like the price is becoming more competitive. But unfortunately no stock, they expect it in 1-2 weeks...

BTW, as of this morning, Henry's in downtown Toronto has four K-5s in boxes behind the counter. Naturally, they want $1599 for them, but they do grumblingly "price match" to other stores (even to Dunn & Rundle at $1430, a la Bobe416).

Very tempting...

Keep me posted too .... this is a very interesting price already.
Which "well known" store, if you don't mind me asking?

Cheers.

Simon's Camera dans le vieux Montreal (they also have a store in Laval BTW). I already bought my K-7 from them (also cheapest at the time by about 100$ vs the other big stores). They have a nice selection of Pentax lens BTW. Looking for the new Sigma 8-16? or Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 they have them on display.

Was going to journey out to the Toronto Henry's to check out the K-5, but they aren't open on Sunday (glad I checked). Good to know they will price match a BC vendor though.

One thing to note about Henry's and price-matching: I've been told it's all based on "in stock" items at both Canadian stores. If someone has a killer price and that item is on "backorder" they won't match it. (Kinda makes sense!)

Of course, it probably also depends on who you talk to and how much commission they'd like to get (and how much "extra stuff" you're adding to the purchase, like extra warranty and lenses, etc.)

I didn't know Henrys does this. Does anybody know if they ever do the price match with online offers (e.g. prodigital2000). I'm asking in general, not only the K-5. It's hard to find any better offer most of the time.

Not sure I understand you but I've had items bought at Prodigital that have been repaired under warranty. Their items carry the genuine 2-years canadian warranty AFAIK.

Not true, I had items purchased from Prodigital and had gone through repairs by Pentax Canada - they are legit Canadian authorized dealer, unless something changed recently.

Wow...it's 1599 here in Victoria. I wonder how much shipping would be
$1529 at the moment.

I didn't see it on the London Drugs website the other day (and the site is down now) but it wasn't long ago that they still had a K20D on the shelf for $899

They do this for their out-of-Canada customers. Pentax still has a one-year international warranty even if you are not from Canada. And actually Prodigital is linked to Carman's Foto Source... Prodigital2000 seems to be their eBay operation.

I bought my K10D, K20D, K-m and K-x from them. Every time the 2-year Canada warranty sticker was present on the box.
