I would like to deal with Henry's but their prices are so far out of line compared to the US that I may gamble on mail order from the US.
Henry's lost out 5 years ago when I bought my K100D.
Have you considered a price match?
I got my K-5 for something like 1350 through Henry's under price match.
I also go the extended protection with no lemon guarantee for peace of mind.
Couldn't of been happier with them and they have pretty good printing services too.

JohnBee,

Thanks. I have never heard of price match but I shall give it a try.

Did they compete with US prices?. All the Canadian prices I have seen are very close to Henry's.

For $1350 I would buy it now. I assume that was body only.

Doesn't matter.....Once you get the K5 and take a few shots, you will forget all about the price, Otis guarantees it.
How many shooters here that have the K5 have you heard complain about the price? Any?
Just get it somewhere, and get it soon. The sooner you get it the less time you can complain about not having it earlier....like me.
Best Regards!

Uk prices have dropped heavily this weekend , body only have dropped from £999 to £889, which seems a bargain

Canadian Prices are Down

As of the 13th Canadian prices dropped to about $1,299. I'd be surprised is we don't see prodigital/easy123 at about $1200 before long.

BestBuy has cut prices on Nikon bodies and lenses including on the D7000 and the D5100. The D7000 / 28-105 G VR kit is currently at $1,260. They have the D5100 / 18-55 VR kit for $756.

Are we going to see a ripple effect?

omegaleader,

Are you talking about the K-5?
If so, is that price for body only?
Who is selling it at that price?

I'll drive to Niagara falls to get it at that price.

Hintojen korottaminen, nostaa K-5 arvostusta. Ei enään vertailuja canon tai nikon vaan Hyvä K-5.

Sorry I missed this post.
To my knowledge, price matching is limited to Canadian prices.
But I think Henry's has the K-5 on sale atm for $1,299.99

To I'd add, sounds like a pretty sweet deal imo.

Note that pricebat.ca doesn't reflect sales promotions within an allowable amount of time. ie. if you go to Henry's you'll see the K-5 on sale, though it is not reflected in pricebat.ca's listings. I've also seen this before with other vendors also. I suspect they base their listings on retail pricing. - And so my recommendation would be to check each link individually to confirm pricing. Otherwise, one might miss something special
