K-5 IIs $697 deal still availble

I just wanted to point out to those who may have missed this deal that you can still get the K-5 IIs for just $696.95 at Adorama, with free shipping, rewards, and other goodies:

Pentax K-5 IIs Digital SLR Camera Body 12050

This was supposed to expire 2 days ago, but it's still live! The special price can only be seen through the link above; the site will show $796.95 otherwise.

I found a local brick and mortar dealer with the K5 IIs for the same price today! Going to pick one up tomorrow morning. He has several, so there should be one with my name on it waiting when they open.

I'm thinking that these price changes are a sign that Pentax wants to liquidate some stock, next the discounts on the K-3 will be showing up....maybe preparation for a FF by the end of the year??

I was planning to upgrade to the K-3 or its replacement around Christmas; but found my K-5's LCD had broken somehow, so I was shopping around and spotted this little place 15 miles from me with the Adorama price. Jumped on it.

Good for you, I'm in no hurry so I'm kinda waiting to see what B&H does.

Thank you Jean! I know this shop, I keep tracking the prices all the time
Fotoplus is the official Hungarian Pentax brand dealer, but unfortunately because higher taxes here we are not so lucky with the prices

Adorama: 696.95 USD - this is something like 157,279.19 HUF (Hungarian Forints)
our price here (K5IIs - body only) 299 900 HUF that's 1,328.81 USD so almost double....
