Ryther Camera

Has anyone bought anything from Ryther Camera? Their price on the K-5 body only is VERY good at $1159. Their reseller rating is good also at 9.02. However the K-5 price is so good I'm wary, 'too good to be true' and all that. So if anyone knows anything about the company I'd be grateful, grey market? bait and switch? overly agressive upsale tactics? Any feedback would be appreciated.

Doesn't look so great to me (Ryther Camera - Linden, NJ), but based on reviews, looks like if you are perserverant that they will eventually come through for you. At least, I don't read about any one saying that the camera will be only in Japanese, more up selling on batteries and so on.

Thanks Rondec, didn't know about yelp, much different review field than Resellerratings which lists mostly 5 and some 4 star reviews, I'm wondering if Ryther is writing their own reviews on Reseller. I think I'll stay away from them.

When somebody you've never heard of sells new cameras lower than normal, there's a chance you'll get a gray market camera. While a gray market camera may be new, usually you won't get a warrantee with it.

or $1199 for BODY ONLY. $30 dollars... a week of cup a salt?
