Odd Shipping

Thanks for the headsup but have you seen the shipping time? "Usually ships within 1 to 2 months."

Yes I have seen the shipping time frame. I have posted this on dpreview a couple of days back. Kuff bought it on 12.28.2009 and it is estimated to be delivered on January 5th. I do not know the reason that Amazon estimates 1-2 months for shipping.

Here is the other thread I am referring to:

It seems they just raised the price to $799 again. Sale only lasted a few days???

If the price goes back down... someone post and let us know!

Also let us know if anyone ordered it and how long it took to receive.

Do a search on Amazon for a "Pentax K-x".

Locate the sale that includes both lens.

It's offered by Willoughby's but it's more expensive.

Go to "Other Buying Choices" (or something like that) and you should find the $644 offer.

The delivery for my order moved out to March 11 so I cancelled.

I'll keep looking for a k-x. I see Costco has a single lens K-x for $579. I wouldn't be surprised if they offered a package with the extra lens soon. At least I'd know I get the item in a week or so.

I ordered this kit back on Dec 21st and Amazon originally quoted a shipping date mid Jan to Feb (can't remember because it no longer shows). It ended up shipping on Dec 23rd from Seattle and I received the camera on Dec 29th.

Maybe I was just lucky, but I ordered it when the price was $653.99 versus the current price of $643.99.

Yes, that is correct. My bad, I wrote December 4th. Yes it was ordered on December 30th 2009 and shipped on January 4th 2010.

Happy new year to all of you!
