"Usually ships in 21-30 business days"


Gotta read the fine print...

Then why would it say "Only 5 left in stock, order soon!" ?

How strange that it also shows shipping in 21-30 days. Maybe "in stock" really means "on order."

My best guess is that Willoughby's knows that they will only be getting 5 K-7s in their first shipment from Pentax, coming sometime in the next couple of weeks, so listing them as "in stock" might be a good way to sell all 5 rather quickly (whether they're able to ship them to the buyer right away or not).

Ships in "30 business days" is 6 weeks !!!

Due to this scam, I'll never order anything from this dealer nor will I ever visit their website.

Once I got Great service from B&H, like predictable fast processed orders and deliveries and bulletproof return on a defective Sigma lens, all other NY dealers along with other Dealers in other States are Dead To Me.

I agree B&H is also the largest volume Pentax dealer on the planet.

You mean a "reputable" Pentax Dealer that you would order from again. It's unfortunate but I have to believe that QVC (I know they're not really considered a dealer) could probably move more Pentax merchandise in one hour than B&H would in a month.

i think "only 5 in stock!" is standard salesman bullshit. supposed to grab your attention and determine you to act.

Adorama's always been good to me, they've got a trustworth rep. Definitely beware anyone else than those two in NYC.

Don't bother with Ritz/Wolfe camera. I am going to be in Knoxville for the early part of July and thought perhaps I could pick up the K-7 while I'm there. This store told me they just sent back all of their Pentax stock and will no longer carry the brand! Did they make ANOTHER bad business decision?
