K-r on Amazon, a good deal?

Time to order my new DSLR and I'm eying the Pentax K-r + 2 lens kit on Amazon.
Amazon.com: Pentax K-r 12.4 MP Digital SLR Camera with 3.0-Inch LCD and 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 and 55-300mm f/4-5.8 Lenses (Black): Camera & Photo

$799.99 new, does that seem like a reasonable price? I understand the camera is discontinued now, and that the replacement will likely be announced in a couple of months... at what point might we guess the price to drop again?

No, the price won't drop any further (for a new one)- that's a pretty good deal though, as the lenses combined are worth like 250 bucks.

Fixed your link. Good price, good dealer. I think that's a winner over Amazon.

As Adam would tell you - use the B&H link through this forum if you decide to go with B&H. B&H will share a tiny fraction of the profits to support this forum. As a reminder, you cannot make purchases on the B&H site between 7pm Fridays and 7pm Saturdays.
