Pentax K-01 back in stock

For those who were wondering, B&H just advised me that the K-01 is now back in stock!

They also said that they had a feeling that the K-01 would be discontinued soon....

i wonder if it's because
- it's not seeling as well as hoped
- Sony sensor supply come close to end, and thus they focus on the K5II
- the K30 price point is coming low enough to "replace" the K-01

Just ordered the black/white model w/40mm through the B&H link.
I used PayPal, since I had some money sitting there from eBay sales.

It's funny, I hadn't given the camera much thought when it was about $700, but for $446 I can't wait to get it and the lens!

Congratulations! The 40XS has very nice optics, I hope you enjoy them both.

My yellow K-01 body plus card/bag/etc bundle is now marked as 'shipped' - they must have a nice shiny new bunch of them to ship out to all of us bargain hunters :P

My order at Bestbuy.com just went from 3-5 days shipping to Backordered. Might have to cancel and try and get an order in at B&H. Guess I should have probably gone with them from the beginning but BB had it for the same price (not including tax) and I had over $150 worth of gift cards so it ended up costing around $300. Plus the idea of being able to return it to a physical store that is near me if there was a problem was very appealing.

I just keep lucking out with this camera. Been trying to get one since Oct. 26th. First it was eBay (NY camera store that got hit hard by Sandy), then Bestbuy, and now possibly B&H or Adorama. Would have gone with Amazon since I'm a Prime member (gotta love that 2 day shipping) but they don't have the white with 40mm for $450. Never thought decent customer service would be such a rarity these days especially since Christmas is more than a month away. Oh well, at least I have my Pentax Q to keep me company during this agonizing wait and watch period.

It's crazy too because all this bad luck has only made the camera more desirable in my eyes. I am convinced more than ever now that I must have the K-01 and that the white is the color for me (gotta match my Q). Keep me in your prayers guys!

Once I decided on white, with 40mm, I did a lot of online searches for the best price.
Then it became best price where it was still in stock.
B&H had it for $446 with free shipping, and mine will arrive on Tuesday.

I ran across some weird pricing.
Walmart lists the black w/40mm for $449, but the yellow w/40mm is $899.

Good luck LeRolls!
