Who's the enemy?

QuoteOriginally posted by Michaelina2 Quote
Rule 1: "If people are standing in line to buy a product, then the price is too low."

Sale prices are NOT determined by Pentax, B&H, Adorama, J&R, etc. It's determined by the consumer (you, me... us).

Don't consider yourself as being 'victimized' by Pentax, or its retailers. Charlie Brown said it best, "We met the enemy and it was us."

Can I hear an 'Amen' for the Law of Supply and Demand...?
Thanks for a fine reminder of how markets really work. You're exactly right - except for the quote. That was Pogo (drawn and written by Walt Kelly, whom I had the distinct honor to meet at a friend's home when I was a child) paraphrasing Oliver Hazard Perry.

Yeah, If B&H still had the body only in the $750 range I would be buying it today. But as it is I would hate to see the super out in two months for a couple hundred more with better video features.

I'll be playing wait and see now and making do with my K100D until the price drops again or the new model hits the streets.
I expect the price of K-7 to drop by the time the new enhance model announced or available. I do think that the difference between the K-7 and its replacement would be a few hundred dollars at least. Since I just got my K-7, I would not be looking for replacement but perhaps a model beyond that.

I am holding on to sufficient cash reserves just in case the "super" is worthy of an instant upgrade. My kid`s are already lining up to inherit the "Old Gear".

I went for it for $763.00, plus grip and battery= $1001.87. What a deal.

I'll be making a purchase Wednesday (payday), and if the K7 body looks reasonable, I'll bite. Otherwise, it's the Kx again.
