Cheapest place to buy K-5 in the UK?

So far I have found using quidco and jessops that the K-5 body only would work out at ~726. Before I take the plunge does anyone know anywhere cheaper? I have searched and searched but that is the best I could get.

Henry's in Canada would be cheaper (I think about 650 ish) but I would worry about getting stung by import duties etc.

Try SRS in Watford. As a Pentax Pro dealer you get a 2 year warranty and being SRS, great customer service. You might find it slightly cheaper elsewhere, but you get what you pay for. Check out the Pentax User site for other views.

I saw an offer at ffordes - including a lens. They have a few lenses on offer too and my past experience was ok.

Given the problems that some people are facing with the K-5, I'd definitely pay the little bit extra and buy from SRS (where I got mine) for the extra year's warranty - it will cost you far more than that if something goes wrong in year 2

As far as Misuds are concerned, that's where I got a good s/h Sigma KA mount lens, and they are a well-respected UK dealer - but they are mainstream on CaNikon nowadays, whereas SRS are Pentax-centric.

725 is the cheapest I found last week, although there is somewhere which has a good price and 12 months interest free which I am contemplating...
