I've heard that Pentax has started shipping the K-5 to their Canadian dealers.

And that the K-7 price will see a big drop soon.

If you buy a Pentax at Vistek this month, you get a $450 rebate on an Epson R1900 or R2880 who are 2 great Printer

I rolled over to the London Drugs here in PG today at lunch. Asked the camera department manager when she expects the K-5 to arrive. She phoned somebody and after waiting for a good 5 minutes...the answer was it will start shipping in about a week! She said that usually means the stores will have it a week later.

That's better than page 2, where the featured product is the K20D!

Finally this rebate is good at any store in Canada if you buy a DSLR and a printer from Epson at the same time
Same deal in the USA

seems like it would cost just like the K-7 last year. I think I'll pass for now and see what's up for next year.

Lens and Shutter said the price is 1599. Funny thing is that they had another price in their system at 1499, but they said they had none on order for that price.

It looks like, initially they were going to sell for 1499 and changed it to 1599.

When the K-7 first came out, I bought it from them through a pre-order and paid $100 less than anywhere else, although they quickly bumped the price up. Perhaps someone got the same deal on the K-5.

Bushrangers Alive and Well Down Under.

Reading all the foregoing is very interesting. Here, Down Under, the price will be , as usual, extremely high. If we can buy K5 here, for less than $2000 I will be very surprised.
I was looking at a lens the other day, Pentax DA 15mm ED AL,
USA = $499US (B&H)
Australia = $1320US (DCW)

This is gangsterism at its most obvious.
We Aussies are being ripped off big time. Remember, the Aussie Dollar at the moment is only about 1.5c below the US$ in exchange rate. Parity is being predicted in the very near future.
