New K10D for $500 ?

I keep hearing about such prices .
Has anyone found this at a good camera shop via the net?

I am hoping some here is better than me with searches or have already done the investigating search .

If you can find a new one for $500, you should buy it.

Used one have been going for around $500 body - $600 w/lens.

If you do find a new one for $500, please post the source.

guess I am wrong

here is email I sent to person her about refurbished ones



i saw the refurbs too on the net , I may but one of them , where did you see rating for refurbs that said they were bad ?? .
refurb means a very minor problem.
many many people sent their back to factory for repair and were returned to them , some got refunds , these are the refurb one ,,,don't you think.
they can not sell them as new any more

Broadway Camera and PrefferedPhoto.com are the same place.

It's your money to throw away. But I'd treat that place like a Rattlesnake ready to strike.

Also part of Broadway camera.

You can check all of them out here

Now, I've done my part to help you to not get screwed. Now it's up to you to figure out the rest.

B&H Photo

Calumet Photo
Amazon.com

These are all reputable places from which to buy.

Have a nice evening.

With as many complaints from customers as they have, plus the fact that their bad reputation is so well-known among anybody who knows anything about buying cameras, it's a wonder that Broadway Photo+friends are still in business at all. I know that Popular Photography won't even run their ads in their magazine. I wish that the other photography magazines would follow suit.

While they don't have any K10Ds at the moment, KEH Camera: Used Cameras, Digital Cameras, Film Cameras, Laptop Computers and More. is a good reputable source for used gear of all stripes. I've ordered from them before and have never had any problems.

I got one new with kit lens and 2gb memory card for $586 in early December, from Beach Camera. (That price was after rebate.)

Now that the rebates are over, and stocks of the K10D are dwindling... I can't find the body for <$600 from a reputable place. Penn Camera has it for that price. They are very reputable, they have retail stores in the DC area. Abe's of Maine has it for $720 with kit lens + 1gb card. I've done the search myself, pretty thoroughly, and don't think there is any possibility you will get the body for <$600.

Jesus, if a price seems too good to be true... it is. Check every vendor at ResellerRatings.com. I myself was tempted to order from Broadway, Millenium, Preferred Camera, or one of the other shady scam places, but fortunately got the good advice to stay away.

Or buy used... my local craigslist has had a couple lightly used K10Ds recently at decent prices, $600-700 for the full kit.
