Thanks saff for responding. Do you know if the sale worldwide, as in the ~$900 price range will end then too? Or is this more like a permanent price drop?

No, I think the price is a temporary thing. Henry's is usually the most expensive camera shop (in my opinion), so i was very surprised to see them having this type of promotion.
The 18-55mm WR lens to buy on its own from them is 229.00, so I'm not sure why they're throwing it in with the k5 for $1099 total.
In any case, I think it's worldwide as they have an online store, and they also sell items on ebay and ship worldwide, so mailing to you shouldn't be a problem so far as I know, but you may want to contact them yourself just to make sure.

Henry's is usually up there in price.
When I was there last, the salesman told me they will pricematch online stores, as long as they also have a B and M store.
So really, their listed prices don't mean a whole lot.

Hmmm. I think Pentax may be getting prepared to announce a new TOTL camera soon.

If my memory serves me right, that's just $50 shy of being half the original price!

Hi,
I want to buy a K-5 immediately, but am in BC, Canada and leaving on 7-23-12. I will buy new or used but need the camera in my hands in less than a week! Any help?

You can probably order it from Henry's or B&H no problem- they have rush shipping options.

Hi Michael,

I recommend Broadway Camera if you're in the Vancouver area. Excellent customer service, and their price for the k5 is just $50 more than the currently listed US price of $899

I couldn't stand it any longer. I just ordered from B&H. With first time pay me later you get another $20.00 off! I wonder how low they will go before they run out. Now I have to sell the K20.
