That is frustrating. Montreal is just 6 hours drive from Missisauga (Pentax headquarters) but you can't find the K20D anywhere here. But Edmonton is about 20 hours drive and they have it. What is going on? Pentax should have managed to have it Canada wide about the same time. I can't give pentax top grade for distribution. Still waiting for mine.
Camera Simon seems to have it in stock, at least according to their website.

When I called this morning, I was told it was expected incessantly.
L.L.Lozeau doesn't have it yet. The salesman said it was due in March, so they're waiting for it. My supplier (C.D.M. photo in St-Jérome) was told by Pentax that they were shipping this week, but he doesn't have it yet.....waiting

I think most stores in Canada received their shipments this week. The best price I've found thus far for the K200d & K20D have been at Aden Camera in Toronto.

Given the fact that Ottawa is more or less 200 km. from Montréal, I woudn't really call that "going slow"

So today I dropped by the McBains shop where I bought my K20D Tuesday and they honoured their price guarantee no problem. I used the credit and little cash to pick up the grip.

While there I noticed lots of interest in Pentax. Both the k20 and k200 were drawing customers. One lady I spoke with was switching from film and wanted to keep using her Pentax lenses. A guy there looked like he was fixing to trade a Nikon of some kind in on a k200d. It's a good sign I think.

I bought my K10D there last September. It was a good price and they kept me informed as to when it was shipped.

Just wanted to add that after noticing my copy of the K20 had a dead pixel, The Camera Store here in Calgary didn't bat an eye to replace it. Good price and I can vouch for the service.

You may wanna try Carman's Foto Source. I have had good experiences with their online sales via prodigital2000. I had bought by k10 with two lenses, battery grip, bag etc ... and the shipments arrived with no problems. I would add them without hesitation to the "short list".
