Hey, order it from B&H, at today's exchange rate, it's only $1,370 Canadian! Even if you factor in the $30 or so shipping rate, it's still a good deal.
Not sure where you do your money exchange, but 1300 US$ is more like 1480 CDN$ at the current .8794 exchange rate.

Which is IMHO not worth it over the 1500$ Henry's is charging (we get a 2 year warranty when buying in Canada).

Nice price

K20 was a little expensive then it come,
but K7 are cheap, 1325€ on Cyberphoto with 18-55 in Sweden.
Taxes included.
And it seams to be a great camera.
And i want it, but with DA17-70WR.

how can they expect to make a profit?
Don't worry, as always they will catch up by ripping off Europeans

why is it July? What happened to the "less than 1 month from announcement so shelves" that either OGL or RH were talking about? Not having the camera out before 4th of july would be a dumb move. Not only cause it's a big picture taking holiday, but also because so many people would be drunk that they would break their camers and have to go out and order second bodies...

you've posted several times how broke you are and can't afford the k-7. maybe if you didn't hang out here so much, and find a (another?) job... just a suggestion

sell your bodily fluids or perhaps a kidney? you can get a k-7 and the da ltds and the 60-250 :P

I don't know about better, but certainly in the same league. They pretty much answered my wish list list anyways.

My Amex billing date is the 1st of the month so I hope Pentax USA ships it and charges my Amex card just after July 1st.
