K-5 remaining stock info

According to B&H, they're down to the single digits. According to Adorama, there's enough stock to last through mid-december. In any case, if you still want the K-5 classic, it seems there still going to be around for several weeks even though it's no longer in production

Thanks, Adam. Great market information to have as a gauge, even if approximate projection. By the way, do you know anything about factory refurbished K-5's? I bought my k100dS as a factory refurb in early 2009, long after production had stopped, but I have not really seen much regarding factory refurbished K-5's. Just wonder why, and especially what happened to those units that were returned with the sensor stains? I thought those might have become a good source of good, refurbished units.

Why not just get the K5s as they are good cameras in their own right too?

You can try Bill Me Later linked to PayPal I know B&H accept that payment. Then it offers 12 months no interest on the purchase price. So monthly payments would be a little less than 10 of purchase price. I am now a proud owner of a K5 this way!
