The Fleabay part of the deal may be gone, but they're still offering some cashback deals. How much back depends on the vendor. Here's what I found for the K20:

That cashback thing is dead for now though ;-)
it is - I got mine just in time before it and Pentax rebates were done for the time being...

I had thought about doing that as well, but the September KxD body has me on the fence :-)
I sold my K10D body, so for me it was like $150 to upgrade K10D to K20D... no brainer, huh... long live M$

current 2%-4% is pathetic... people just should read fatwallet.com & on a daily basis, period.

well, because I happen to be in the USA... and evil Microsoft was running
a promotion like up to 25% (even 35%) cash back if you buy on ebay and pay with paypal after you do a search using live.com for an item (any item - just click the cashback link
to go to ebay from live.com)... and there are dealers ("dealers") who sell new K20Ds on ebay... so
~$1038 - 25% (up to $250, so it is $250 in this case) - $100 rebate - credit card cash back... voila, you have new K20D body for... ~$650...

I got the same deal, more or less, $250 from microsoft cashback, $100 rebate, and $100 ebay coupon. I had no intentions of jumping to the k20d yet, but couldn't pass it up.

OK Guys, help an old fart understand this whole thing. Did you find the microsoft 25% and the ebay deal both on fatwallet & slickdeals? If not where else do I need to look?

Thanks for any help you can pass on here.

the M$ promotion is over for now (but it might come back, u never know - it was running for a long time)... so u are too late to the table.

ebay coupons are emailed by ebay, sometimes people share them, sometimes people sell them.

Ben, an honest question: is the bet still up?

I think many of us could use a hint or two...

Unfortunately, Ben is wrong...
Pentax will show only one real low-end camera. It's sad..

How do you know what will be announced on Photokina? For all we know your information may be invalid.

Asahiflex,

In the previous months ogl stated that "FF is comming for sure, 645D most likely", "K20D Super is comming", "small camera is comming" so you see whatever of those will come he's covered in his predictions!

4 more days ...

Yeah. Ogl, you really do have an unfortunate tendency to state your guesses in the form of facts.

Allow me to be blunt and direct, and remember that im open to any input, I don't know everything and I might be missing the big picture (pun intended):

but:
WHAT THE HELL is the fixation and hype/lunacy with full frame and keeping up with the jones' (nikon, sony and canon) here?
