k2000 on QVC

Was flipping through the channels last night... and WHAT!? Is that a Pentax on my TV? Sure enough, QVC, one of those home shopping network channels, has a k2000 with the two kit lenses, (no external flash), for 741.00 US dollars... or 148.20 a month for five months.

No wonder my local camera shop hates Pentax. How many kits do you think QVC has to sell in order to pay for the airtime? I watched for at least five minutes before they switched to another product.

Frankly, I'm glad to see Pentax using modern distribution channels. The old B&M stores in my area didn't do Pentax justice when it came to stocking bodies and lenses, so their demise (with the exception of Adray's) doesn't do any more than bring a few pangs of nostalgia.

Now if they can just get the K2000 kit into the big box stores...

I heard that k-m+kit lens+other stuff was on the shopping channel here in Canada. The entire kit was around 550 CAD (before taxes and such).
