I have used BuyDig twice before with no issues at all, and just ordered a K-5 from them today for $815 shipped (found a $25 coupon code online). I will know in 4-7 business days if my continued trust in them is warranted!
Good luck. I have had good experiences with them but the last item I tried to buy was on one of their weird 14% rebate days and they took the order, never charged my card, never sent the item, and even though I had a sales confirmation claimed that it had never happened

For what it's worth, everything worked out seamlessly and I am the happy new owner of a K-5 Sorry you had a bad experience!

I followed dmeadows85 lead and place my order with Buydig for the K-5. Using an online rebate it cost me $815.00. According to Fed-x the camera is in transit with an ETA of Oct 3rd. The transaction was very simple, 100% done online and never received a single 'upgrade phone call'. The final dettermination of how well this transaction went will be when I receive the camera. I will of course post my findings shortly there after.

Congratulations. Glad it worked out for you. It was one of the oddest online "purchase" non-experiences that I have ever had. Glad you have a nice new K-5

Got my new K-5


Here is an update for anyone interested. I received my K-5 today which I purchasedfrom Buydig.com and Iím pleased to report that the camera arrived exactly ontime and was in perfect condition with all factory items in the box asadvertised. After checking the serialnumber I was pleased to find that it was not a grey market camera but a U.S.model as expected. I purchased thecamera entirely online and never heard from Buydig other than for the shippingand tracking emails. I purchased thecamera on the 28th of Sept and received it yesterday, Oct 4thas promised with only the standard free shipping offered. The only Ďconí to the whole transaction isthat the camera could have been packed a little better with a little moreinsulation but otherwise it arrived intact and 100% O.K. Cost for the camera after using an onlinediscount coupon was $815.00 for the body alone. For the record I would recommend them and purchase from the again.

I currently own a K-x and its time to upgrade to a K-5. With the announcement of the K-5II I noticed the K-5ís have come down a bit and perhaps the time is right.
I have noticed some great prices at the following places:
$799 at BPPhoto
$739 at Daxmart
$839 at Buydig
All seem too good to be true and all have their fair share of bad reviews.
1. Has anyone here had any experience with these guys?
2. Can anyone recommend a place to get a good deal on a K-5 right now?
3. With the announcement of the K-5II, what is the opinion of the forum whether the prices on the K-5 will drop further or should I buy now while they are available?
Thanks
I have just bought a K-5 for $720, incl 16GB memory card, extra battery and a bag from Adorama. Basic price for body alone is $699.
