Looks like that's the price B&H has, actually. Not too shabby, really.

It'll be some time, I think, before it's time to upgrade, anyway: I'm just not in that income bracket.

The problem is the AF and AE of K20D are not even up to the par with other modern *entry* level DSLRs of other brands like C, N, S, O. Don't ask me to use ancient cameras. They do take pictures but they are not modern products. Modern Pentax DSLRs with AF and AE systems that are inferior to their old MZ line bodies in the 90s is just a joke!
The AF system in the 5D is just as old as the K20D. Plus, the 5D is just older to begin with since it came out earlier.

Nice try anyway...and I'm not going to bother looking at your blog when you could just as easily post here.

This has just about everything I was hoping for, so at $16-1700 cdn, it's not completely out of line. That said, I must now make a trip to the jewelry store in an effort to ease my wife's pain when I buy this

Ahhhh...that's why I came to post in this thread again Just started drinking my coffee

Even though B&H lists it at $1300, that's still not $1400.

Care to explain, RH?

What's your tax rate? Do you order from out of state just to save a little cash?

The Finnish store TopShot lists the body at 1197 euros now. This is lower than the Swedish and German stores.

Hey, order it from B&H, at today's exchange rate, it's only $1,370 Canadian! Even if you factor in the $30 or so shipping rate, it's still a good deal.

If you want to buy locally (in Canada), Henry's has it listed for $1499.99, which isn't so terrible considering the exchange rate.

Very true. I think the only hesitation I have about ordering right now is wanting to see how much The Camera Store lists it for. They tend to have good prices, less tax and free delivery (that, and they're Canadian )
