I might have to jump on this deal. Are you guys purchasing any extended warranties for your K-5's? I might apply for AMEX card to get the extra 1 yr of warranty coverage as well.

Consumer report says digital cameras are one of the most reliable electronic devices. I got mine from Canada. comes with 2 year warranty and one year extra through AMEX.. Most of VISA or MC nowadays also offer extended warranty.

Here in the UK we have 90 cashback on K5 body or K5 kit with lens. SRS Microsystems here is a Pentax Pro dealer from what I understand and the body is 729 - 90 = 639 ($1017.00 USD) with a two year warranty. I will try my hardest to get another K5 body soon!

K-5 at Henry's

Dr_Romix....how did your purchase from Henry's go? Any import tax? Looks like they still have the K-5, body only, for $999. Thanks for any info you may have. Saving $200 sounds good...but not if it comes with lots of headaches!

Great deal in Winnipeg

Don's Photo in Winnipeg is offering the K5 for $949.00 Canadian until the end of the month. So I bought one!

It's not advertised, but Henry's in Canada has the K5 with the 18-55 (nonpWR) for $999.99. It's the only package they have for it, or so the sales person told me.

If B&H or Adorama ends up with one of these for 999 when I get my tax refund I'll score one then. Or, if they have a kit with that and a 18-135 wr....

If you want my guess, when the rebate ends at the end of January, the camera will continue being sold at a higher price until its replacement is announced and/or stock runs out. Would be nice if Pentax didn't discontinue it alongside a new model, though, as it won't change the fact that it's a very good camera.

Just joined the Pentax Digital owner world, pulled the trigger on Henry's after reading all this good info here:
PENTAX K-5 W/ 18-55 DAL LENS $999.99

United States of America
Item(s) Subtotal: $999.99
Shipping & Handling: $12.95
-----
Discounts: $0.00
-----
Total: $1,012.94

They don't say much how fast the shipping is, but it sure is cheap for international Canada to Texas.
I really only wanted the body but I'll take the 18-55mm kit lens for thirty bucks...
