Looks like B&H just matched the deal as well:
Pentax K-5 Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) (Black) 14748 B&H

That figures - I actually wanted to buy from B&H since they've been so good about returning items in the past (when I change my mind or need to hold/feel a piece of equipment).

I have been seesawing on this camera for the past year almost. I am about to just pull the trigger on it, but does anyone have any recommendations of a zoom lens to go along with the purchase?

As far as I know you can buy the extended warranty from anywhere as long as it is within the 30 days of camera purchase.

Why not just buy both from Adorama?

Edit to add - oh - I see you would be getting the K-5 for $985 from Abe's -
Adorama just sent me an email with the UPS tracking number for my K-5. Too late to cancel and order from elsewhere. I just saw B&H price matched the K-5. If I knew that, I would have waited and order from B&H like many of my lenses. Oh well, I guess they are equally good.

I was waiting for the Amazon one to go live so I could get the upgraded Prime shipping and get it here tomorrow, but just couldn't resist the deal from BH also benefiting the forum. And BH's cheap 3 day shipping made it easy. The shipping was just $1.60 and I should get it on Thursday.

BTW, I'm making a nice leap from my Km.

Here in NJ you pay 7% sales tax at Adorama but no NJ sales tax at B&H because Adorama has a store in NJ.

Amazon is now live at $979 - but.....says it is 100% claimed which means there are no more at that price - glad I didn't wait for nothing!

Tristate Camera has it for 979.. boy my hand is twitching to pull the trigger... a voice in my ear is telling me "it has autofocus lights, your K-X doesn't!!" and "its the flag ship model, you wont need to upgrade for years... (laughter in the distance)" ....

i am going crazy here....

Hope is not lost! I was able to get on the waitlist after 15 or so minutes of waiting for it to open up. I was at #134 with my chance of getting it poor, but it just became available and I bought it!

A good zoom lens for the K-5?

I would say the 18-135mm if you're just looking for a walkaround:
Pentax-DA 18-135mm Zoom - Review

Otherwise the Tamron 17-50mm is a fantastic deal:
DA* 16-50mm vs. Sigma and Tamron 17-50mm Comparison - Introduction
Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di-II LD Aspherical [IF] AF016P-700 B&H ($424)

+1 on Adam's suggestions above. Also, if you don't need the wide end the Tamron 28-75 is amazing!

"You can buy the extended warranty up to 90 days after purchase I think" It is 30 days, not 90: and you can buy it from here 80227 Pentax 2 Year Extended Warranty for K5, KX and KR Digital SLR Camera (Total Warranty 3 years - 1 Year Standard + 2 Years Additional)
Thanks for the clarification and the link. Looks like an excellent deal

Oh, and I'm going to be selling my K-r soon........

Adorama gift card with purchase

I'm in for a K-5 from Adorama. FYI - here's a link to a coupon code available for an $10+ Adorama gift card :

Spend $150 with Adorama and receive a Adorama $10 gift card

I'm not affiliated with Adorama in anyway. I just stumbled upon this coupon ... makes the K-5 deal a bit more sweet!

Good luck with your K-5. You will need a lot of it.
We can only hope that with your switch to Leica complete your doom messages will go away? Leica M8 Take 2. Good luck, it appears you will need it there as well.
