Amazon has it for $812 now.
Cameta has it with Tamron 28-80, 70-300, 8gig card and spare battery + a couple of other bits and bobs for $1000.


How low will it go and if it keeps going down, what price will the K2000 be?

It is pretty obvious that the K2k has to compete at the entry level.
So, it must break the €299,- barrier in Europe and the $399,- barrier in the US.

Personally, I have no idea why Pentax believes to make cash with the entry level to be able to afford a FF camera develpment. It is the other way round. The lowest dSLR entry level model is margin-free meant to bring new customers to the platform. At least this is how the other vendors see it.

Last time I checked the body is $790 at Amazon. Anyone has an idea when the price drop would end? I plan to buy one and I'm not sure if it would still get any lower after the Christmas Season.

AWWW MAN ITS A SCAM!! Lol im easy to fool. Ya I saw their ads in magazines and thought it was safe. But that’s what happened when we bought a $2000 gaming computer off of a site advertised on a mag, two words, complete garbage! Should have built me self.

Hows this off of amazon? Is this legit?

Amazon.com: Pentax K20D Digital SLR Camera with Tamron 28-80mm Zoom Lens + Tamron 70-300mm Macro Zoom Lens + 8GB SDHC Card + Spare D-LI50 Battery + Case + Cameta Bonus Accessory Kit: Electronics
Cameta are pretty ok. They just offer packages like this to sweeten the pot. If you want the lenses in that kit, it's a pretty good buy for you. Just price the camera and lenses individually to see if the package is worth it and consider the other stuff as freebies.

I wouldn't bet on it > Broadway Photo / A&M Photo World, Regal Camera, Prestige Camera, Preferred Photo, Royal Camera, more - bwayphoto.com - Reviews, Ratings and Prices at ResellerRatings

Broadway Photo are a bait&switch operation.

I got one from Prodigital2000 for $720 shipped with a 10% off coupon that brought it down to $648. Broadway is one of the notorious "stores" around. Do some searches and look at some of the seller rating sites.
