It's back up now ($1099 at Adorama), though that's still $100 less than 2 weeks ago

Prices in Canada will likely stay low, as this is a US-only thing.

B&H has just dropped the price to $1099, which is the current minimum advertised price. Amazon will have to increase theirs as well, so if you want a cheap K-5 from there, get it while it's hot!

Well in general the big dealer up here (Henrys) is usually sitting at 1199 unless they are on sale. today they too are 1099. so it may well be this is being implemented up here as well. Our laws though may limit how they do it.

Its $987 but now has the List Price at $1099. Seems Amazon is aware of the change in pricing policy and is continuing to discount the K5!

Nah, they're not (any more, at least)- it's just that the lowest price is always list in the main entry. So while amazon's own price is $1099, independent (likely non-authorized) dealers who sell on behalf on Amazon are still (fortunately) offering lower prices.

Take a look at our homepage in about 2 hours- some fairly bad news is coming up about these price changes

It's probably not going to stay at $1099 forever, especially once a successor is announced...

Didn't somebody's wife on one of these threads say, "Whenever a company raises prices this much it is always followed by bad news."?
