Anyone know if the new lower price will reach Canada?

I'm thinking that at this price point I'll just grab one. But I'd prefer from a Canadian source for warranty concerns.

The price drop was decided by the US distributor, so it might never drop in Canada- who knows! For example, Canada enjoyed a much lower price on the K-5 for a while until it finally dropped to $799 over here as well.

talk to your seller... places like Vistec, Henry's camera, and london drugs do carry the k-01 and they do price match...
with the dollars at near parity, it is hard to say no...

That's probably the angle I'll have to play.

You can try ProDigital 2000 on eBay. They're an authorized Pentax dealer (2 year Canadian Warranty) and their price are very good. You can buy an open box K-5 for 799 USD or 850 for unopened box (both with full warranty). I am looking for a deal on a used K-5 so I am not too concerned about warranty - it isn't transferable anyways.

Hate to break it to you, but that price was only good for a couple of days here in the States. Now nobody has the K01 in stock anymore, so if you want one you have to pay a premium, or wait in limbo for what could be weeks or months.

I went to Henry's and they hadn't heard anything about it. I guess they were just clearing out stock. And they did.

I talked to the pentax rep in wpg... they say they are aware of the price drops in usa and aware of the dollar value so they are looking into what to do about the discrepency in pricing right now... looks like they may just blow k-01 stock out? he said he'd email me and let me know. I'll let you guys know if he does.
