If people seriously want it, keep checking. It was back in stock exactly one hour ago for a little bit. What happens is that some people cancel or their CC don't get approved so those get put back on sale by Amazon. So they pop up from time to time.

Well, however short lived the error was, it at least gave the K-5 some free publicity: it's currently ranked #1 on the DSLR sales chart.

I noticed that today! Now I know why.

I'm about to pull the trigger on a K5 body, but wondering whom I'll buy it from. Hmm.

No, it's different from country to country. In Canada only Quebec has a law that favors the costumer in terms of online price errors. Too bad it's .com and not .ca though... someone could've jumped on the deal
S ... *&% ! Too bad I didn't see this ad. I would have ordered a second K5 body for sure at that price.

Technically they should, if they post the price they have to honor it I believe
No, they don't. Every reseller publishes disclaimers for errors, which happen.

I'm not sure if the law extends to amazon.com though since they're an American seller. It was a verys hort lived deal too.

We've been through this multiple times on this forum.

They can and will cancel any orders that are taken on prices that are posted by mistake.

Please see this thread: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-dslr-discussion/42479-k20d-price.html

woof!
Not always...sometimes people get lucky. I got a k-7 for $399 a little over a year ago on a price mistake.
