If that's true, I sure hope that price drop comes to the US, it'd finally put the K-5 in my price range.

Sorry is not 1039, it is 1059 + tax.

Is a local retailer in Toronto that I go to. They dont have a website or anything and they only do local sales, but if you want their info PM about it.

And I don't think they hire any employee to keep their cost low. And maybe also a special pricing for me since I have been getting my lens Nikon lens from him for a while before I switch to Pentax.

Still showing at $1450 at B&H, so it hasn't dropped enough to make me put down the K20D's I use

The best price i've found is $1225 at Camtec photo: shop.camtecphoto.com

They have 2 stores in Montreal, but I've never been to either, and I've never ordered anything from them, so I can't comment on the service.

Not sure why you guys think that is not legit. Prodigital2000 has the K-5 for 1150 on ebay, subtract shipping, ebay fees and paypal fees. They get about 1050 net.

No one's disbelieving you BUT when you post "BIG price drop for K5 in Canada" and no one locally sees it even on their online sites IN Canada sans add on costs, and you post "PM for source". Well it's only natural to start asking the routine questions?
