Yes, you're right. I wish I had a K-5iiS actually!
Actually, I wonder just how cheap the K-5IIs will get now that you can get a K-3 for that kind of money. K-5IIs is now 58,000 yen.

"Outdated" high-end DSLRs have to be the best value for money in the camera world right now. I saw a Sony A77 with f2.8 standard zoom for about 75,000 yen a month ago.

BTW, sorry for Japanese prices. It's what I know. I think it's about 115 yen to a dollar, so knock two zeros of and you get the picture.

It's a typo. There is no word like "OLD MODEL" on Amazon right now.

If I had to guess, I'd say Pentax were:
3) wishing that the K-5 IIs would just sell out (actually some shops in Japan no longer have it)
Maybe, but they're still being manufactured as of May 2014.

No worries with Yen - I convert quickly using xe.com. But you're right - hopefully they get even cheaper!

It keeps him busy and away from here so his poison does not infect this forum. At least I think it does, though sometimes I wonder.................
Wonder if he doesn't have a proxy here at PF?

I'd almost forgotten about old Rice Low. I will now try to forget about him again.
Ditto ...

And just FYI for France, we have now a 80€ cash-back like the UK on the K-3 and it's Internet "street" price just dropped 50€ as well as of last week.

I've now noticed one Pentax dealer in the UK advertising 10 per cent off selected lens prices via an online coupon code and another now offering lower lens prices in the first place (without any coupon), so perhaps lowering lens prices is also part of Pentax's winter sales programme here but in this case done via deals with camera shops rather than cash-back claims direct to Pentax. There are around 30 selected lenses in the offer which is pretty good.

Wasn't one of the organizing principles of the MAP pricing strategy the foreknowledge that from time to time there would be temporary price reductions?

The Q7 on Amazon is also marked "OLD MODEL". I think someone is just trying to point out there are newer Pentaxes out there, not that there are any differences between new & old K-3s or Q7s...

Amazon have hired RiceHigh, that's the reason for all these 'OLD MODEL" markings .
