Good price on K-r at Newegg

I just ordered a Pentax K-r Black body only from Newegg for $549 with free shipping. I really wanted to wait a few more weeks to free up some funds, but that was a price too good to pass up.

Just thought I'd let everyone know in case they were considering buying one!

Thanks for the price alert. I've been watching prices on this camera, too. It's getting harder and harder not to buy one.

What? Only &549 for a K-r?! Now, you just shocked me with that one... I haven't been tracking K-r prices (cause I'm not interested), but that's still one good price!

Thanks for sharing mycarsoots!

WAIT! You think that deal is good? Listen to this! Your jaw is going to drop. Return it immediately and re-order with an Epson R1900 printer.

If you order a DSLR $549 or more before taxes and buy and Epson R1900 printer at the same time on the same receipt ($420 at newegg), you will get a $400 rebate back from Epson for the printer. Sell the printer for about $300 and the K-R will end up only costing you a couple hundred bucks

It involves a little work on your end and more upfront cash, but really worth it. I'm about to bite myself.

I'm glad I ordered it when I did. Newegg has shipped the K-r, and is due to arrive on Monday.

That epson rebate was awesome...I've got one in my basement that ended up costing $20 - unused in the box, likely going to sell it though as I usually print with adorama.
