Based on the amazon.com feedback rating, it looks like they have been part of amazon web-store for just under 1 year, somewhere between 90 days and 365 days.

price is very competitive and they're rating is not bad, but is actually possible to finalize transaction?

Well, it's gone now so either they pulled it or someone snatched it up. I did poke around their Amazon store front and saw they also have/had the K200D for $800.00.
I tend to view resellers like this on Amazon - carrying a veritable cornucopia of offerings - with a strong sense of Caveat Emptor in mind. They're probably fine for buying nicknacks and low-tech items, but anything that normally comes carrying a warranty I would steer clear.

Agreed. I don't know when Gary found the original, but price is now $704 unless you get a Amazon CC, in which case they knock off $50.

Still a good price.

Have the cancellation emails arrived yet? Are they going to honor their price?

Darn, I would have bought one on the spot at that price...!#$!

Nothing like that being listed now. Oh well, probably for the better...

Guess we should all install http://www.buylatr.com/ on Firefox and see if this comes around again!

The links showing me Adorama price of 704. Just bought the K20D from them for 727 last week. 23 bucks in less than 1 week, that's the cost of a 4gb Sandisk Ultra card shipped.

That whole thing smells of a scam. You can search "K20D" with NexTag, the Amazon listing is still there.

No way I will buy anything significant from an "Amazon third-party vendor" like that. They better have standing in their own right. That is a recipe for a scam: Fly-by-nights get legitimacy by using the Amazon name and site. Still, there is no actual Amazon participation. Amazon makes a couple of bucks but offers nothing. Very bad, Amazon.

Hey guys,
when I clicked on the Amazon link, it tells me to add to shopping cart to see price. it comes up at $704.50 also it says it is sold by and shipped from "Adorama" I have dealt with them and they are reputable. If you go to their site, the price is $744.00 with free shipping. My guess is if you order through Amazon, you'll end up paying for shipping. Also just a note, I have found that there are places that advertize prices in the $500 range but, if you deal with them I can guarantee you'll wish you never heard of them! Personally, I'll stick with Adorama or B&H Photo.
Cheers,
Myplace46

How can this be?

Right now at 5:50pm CST I'm looking at the K20D including a DA18-55mm lens on Amazon for $558.88! Willoughby's is the seller. J&R and Beach Camera offer the same thing for a few bucks more.

What's up with that?

You sure you're not looking at the K200D?
