More Canadian price drops

Many probably know it, but here goes.

The base price for the K20D and K200D have been lowered by 100$ yesteday. Most online stores (and reputable ebay sellers) have apparently followed suit.

Some lenses seem also to have had prices cuts.

Long story short, my K20D should arrive next week!

Less than that from Prodigital2000. And Aden charges 35$ shipping, to my adress at least. I pulled the trigger on the K20D from Prodigital They hit my sweet spot, I guess.

They are an eBay store, very well regarded amongst posters usually. The only negatives I have heard come from people who ordered lenses that were not in stock, but expected shortly, and were somehow delayed. Other than that, I've only heard good comments, and it's pretty clear that K20Ds are in stock.

Here is the link to their store:

Shop eBay Canada Store - Prodigital2000:: Lowepro, Canon

Sigh... Well, my signature reflects the folly of my day, today.

Pulled the trigger at Henry's. They price matched Aden (but not Prodigital). I'm happy there as they've been very good to me in the past.

Hmm, is there a Canadian Chapter of broke K20D owners anonymous...

Right now Henry's has the K200D body selling for $599. I think the kit with the 18-55mm is selling for $699 after rebate. That is one heck of a deal, thats almost what I paid for my K100D in November and it was an end of line model.

I think I saw $ 599 for the K200D and 18-55 at the local Blacks in Winnipeg, on June 28/08.

Winnipeg is a tough town for retailers.

Hi DroolingCrow

Re your observation:

Broadway Camera seems to have the lowest price for K200D in Canada right now...$509.99 for the body, and $649.99 (slightly steep) for K200D w/ 18-55mm II
WARNING ! IF these people are the same outfit as described in the thread below, then WATCH OUT.

Take my advice and STAY WELL AWAY from this BUNCH OF SHYSTERS !!!

I cannot find the link right now but some one visited the "store locations" for Broadway Camera and they didn't exist... At least I believe it was BW but still stay WELL away from them.

Thanks

I think people are talking about two different stores.

Broadway Camera!, Your Digital camera Specialty Store in Vancouver, Canada
Digital Cameras, Plasma TVs, LCD TVs, Camcorders @ BroadwayPhoto.com

I bought my K200D from the first one about a a month ago for $770. Guess I should have waited, but I have taken about 500 shots since then, so maybe not.
