K-7 sold by USA dealer comes with 3 year warranty

K-7 sold by USA dealer comes with 3 year warranty

The prodigital K-7 has one year limited international warranty for $35 less than B&H.

If I bought K-7 today in USA I'd get it from B&H.

But, as we all know should know by now, in a couple more months K-7 will be $300 less than $999, so I predict:

$699 !

Well if Pentax dslr pricing past game predicts the future.

Its the Pentax dslr pricing game I played in 2006.

Paid full price then 9 months later paid half of new price for same model dslr.

The same pricing game I watched happen with K10D.

And its the same pricing game I played when I bought my K20D for $689 Nov 2008, $610 less than issue, some 9 months after K20D launch.

$999 is a good deal, but $699 is even better deal.

Now with 645D announcement on March 11th maybe this will alter pentax predictable dslr pricing game ?

we'll see...

Virtual stores will always have an advantage over a brick and mortar store. Still it's an ebay sale, so it can still go up a lot in the next 12 hours. If that was the "buy it now" price I think a lot of people would jump at it.

Seems weird that a "Canadian store" is selling a USA camera. No warranty in Canada, but you wouldn't get that from the one from B&H either (unless you also get the MAC warranty)

I was pointing out ProDigital for a Canadian buyer therefore the 3 year U.S. warranty is moot.

Posts like this make me glad I went ahead with my purchase last September. Over five months later, and the price has only come down $140 from what I paid - and I've certainly gotten more than $140-worth of keepers in the meantime. ;-)

Seems like a good price to me. I'm guessing that the 645d will not alter prices much, if it all, since it is supposed to be MF.
