that's why you buy from a reputable dealer with price protection policies.

Wow that is a big one. I did have a good deal on my K-01, but this does beat it.

a chance my seller cancelled my Q order after some "problem in the stock management"

The Q is hitting the price it always should have

Usual stock-clearing price action before introduction of a replacement body or a line discontinuation. I doubt Pentax is giving up on mirrorless or on the XS lens line - but the NoVF box-with-a-sensor idea may be a goner.

A K-01 and 40mm XS is 479 pounds here, down from 679 at launch. The body itself is at 299 now, about half the launch price. And at that price, a real bargain. Personally I hope Pentax do not discontinue this mirrorless line but bring out a new and revised model. I've had great success with my K-01, in fact in some situations I find it much more preferable than my K-5. A K-02 that was still not too heavy and bulky would be a camera I'd take on travels over my K-5. I recently got back from several weeks in France with a K-01 and three limited primes and rarely missed a regular DSLR at all. And to my eye, the quality of the pics (shot to RAW) is every bit as good.

I see them with xs40 for under $600, quite the deal. My wife likes the yellow one but even she prefers a viewfinder; maybe she can use the k-5 and I will use the 01! We currently have some micro 4:3 gear for her, would be nice to cut back a bit on redundancies. That's the story I will try to sell
