The price of the K5 moves faster than the market. Its now back up to 1399 on Amazon. Anyone got a 1299 price tag for me?

It's still $1299 on B&H.
I'm >this< close to pulling the trigger today. I'd really get use out of the better autofocus and higher ISO.

It's now back to $1399 at both B&H (verified with customer service) and Amazon.

If there is a moderator on-line, the ad for the $1299 should come down. Specials shown should be validated on a daily basis.

Reseller Ratings is a good resource for little known online shops. Here is Tristate's page.

Tristate...

...have a mixed reputation. While they are not among the worst of the New York bait and switch merchants, they are likely to follow up with phone calls to pressure buyers. They have also been reported to sell some grey market goods.

I bought some items from their eBay site and had no problems, apart from the up-sell phone call.

I talked to Pentax on line and asked if they are an official retailer in case there was a warranty issue. The response was that if they are located on their website here Store Locator - Official PENTAX Imaging Web Site then they are legit. I searched and did not see them. I'm not taking the chance for 100 bucks

Check amazon again. I bought the extended warranty for $9.99 from them, through a camera store called photo world.
Thanks for the info; I'll take a look at it shortly. How was it shipped/delivered. Is it some kinda card or just an electronic receipt?

Abes of Maine shows them for $1329.
And FWIW there are some refurbished showing up on Ebay for roughly the same price.

I'm pretty sure it's still $1299. If not I would call them. Anyway, if you missed it, here's the post on Pentax Forums Main Page:
