Tuesday: K-5 $999 at B&H, Monday $999 at Adorama

On Monday (only), the k5 will be $995 shipped at Adorama. I asked them if they were doing any specials, and this is much more than I had hoped for!

Edit: the deal is live till Tuesday at B&H.

Wow... I can see the difference this year with Ricoh taking over Pentax, they obviously want to put the k-5 into many people's hand (me included) who have been waiting for the price to come down. I think the ownership of k-5 definitely far exceed those of the k-7. For the folks from Canada, unfortunately, the hst and 'no 2-year warranty' will likely be keeping them to purchase on this side of the border. I just got mine from Alberta with only gst and no shipping which is a great deal.

$995 for a K-5 is just what I've been waiting for! I've been shooting with K-X for 2 years, and it is time to upgrade. Does anyone know if Adorama will have a limited number of K-5 at this price? Does the sale begin at midnight on Sunday night? I am in Texas, so I would probably need to stay up late at night to make sure I can get one, right? Thanks.

Does anyone have a link?

I can't find any confirmation of this deal at Adorama. Thanks!

This might just be the price point for me to upgrade from my k20d. Want movies for the newborn coming up and the high ISO would really help me out. Given pentax's history (big jump release the n a refinement...k7 to k5) i don't think i'd mind the k5 for years to come. Plus there is finally an ikelite housing available!!

Yeah it's definitely a cyber monday deal, I would expect the website to automatically show the lower price at midnight on the 28th. The kit will be $1149.

Wow.... that's really a great price!
Really hope under Ricoh ownership Pentax lens price (and camera price) will go back to what it used to be 3 yrs ago!

Bought mine @$1250 body only in May, oh well! Exciting to see what after K-5!

Almost makes me tempted to buy a 2nd K5. But, I think I'll wait to see what will be the new flagship body for Pentax. But sure is tempting to sell the Kx and replace it

That's what I think at first... but tell myself don't be greedy....
Let's wait for the next body, sure will be better than K5!

That's what I'm thinking, too. I'm going to wait, but still tempting to think about.

Good luck with your K-5. You will need a lot of it.
