Pentax K-r now available at Newegg

I've just noticed that the K-r is now shipping from Newegg:
Newegg.com - PENTAX K-r

For those in western Canada, Kerrisdale Cameras is now listing both the K-5 and K-r on their online store for CDN$1599.00 and $899.00 respectively. Also of note, they say that they will have a 645D for display in their Broadway store in Vancouver, BC in mid-November. No mention of these cameras at London Drugs online portal.

Its funny how the DAL version of the 55-300mm sells for almost as much as the non L version when it comes to the forum market place, when even Pentax values it a $150 on the MSRP (difference between single lens kit and 2 lens 55-300 kit).

Yep, that's just typical of what astute buyers perceive to be real value to them.

On average, far far greater depreciation losses are always borne on all types of more-expensive-initially equipment.

And like in your example, often that's more attributable to vanity-factor premiums built into up market goods, not specs and capabilities.
(same lens really, still takes same pictures)

Best thing about Newegg is no tax. Unfortunately, that benefit wasn't there for the K-X as it's $50 more than Amazon so the difference in price really isn't much. However, since the pricing is the same for the K-R on both sites, this is definitely the best place to grab one.

P.S. $5 extra for shipping on the white. Guess they presume it'll be the most popular model.

====================================

Pentax Direct website wants $899 for the K-r Black Single Lens Kit w DA L 18-55.

NewEgg has the best deal on the web so far for the K-r with the 18-55 AND 50-300 Lens bundle. $150 for that 50-300 Pentax kit lens is a good price.

Amazon has the exact same price as Newegg on the KR with the 55-300 kit. No tax for me at amazon either...Newegg charges tax for me.

Provantage.com has this kit for 924.66 + shipping but it not in stock.

As an early implementer, the $999 with the K-x two-lens kit (55-300) was exactly what I got about a year ago.

The same K-R kit will be at least $200~$300 less this time next year.

I am not going to early implement with the K5 though.

NewEgg is a great place to buy a camera, BTW. Safe, reliable, and their customer service is second to none. (I don't work for NewEgg, but as a computer builder have been dealing with them for over fifteen years).

FWIW
