Im checking.....Nothing motivating me yet there.... other than I did notice they have a "free" kit that includes a nice shoulder bag , cleaning kit , and SD card......not quite enough and it looks like they are out of black KP bodies.
That is the deal I got. The bag has ugly! orange highlights and the zipper divider inside won't zip so I was not impressed with that. Initially I thought, it was good but not being able to divide the inside compartments away from the camera, bad.
I did not check closely enough immediately after I bought the deal and should have returned that piece. Gave the card and cleaning kit as a bonus to the buyer of my old camera since I had what I like for cleaners and tissues.

Amazon $869. Just in case anyone is looking. I know that isn't very much off , but $30 is better than nothing.

I picked up a KP in Oz from the distributor who was running a 3 day special for $AUD999. Equivalent to about $US710. That was a couple of weeks ago. Also picked up a K1 MkII for equivalent of $US1,700 - I couldn't resist.
Who was that? I need to add them to my watchlist.

KP is not a big seller at current price tag. What I noticed is when available around 700 USD ppl strat jumping on it, whatever the currency/local market.
At one time or another, with K3 III coming next year, an inventory flush has to happen. Maybe with Christmas cash back?

Best deal in Canada right now is $1050 - with tax that's $1186.50. It comes with all three grips and free shipping though. Here, I think it's a combination of it being summer - high season for photography - and the fact that the K3 III isn't out and there's no release date.

I offered. Rony wants one so bad after borrowing one of mine. However , he wants a full extended 3 year warranty and mine doesnt have it. Hes buying a brand new one on wednesday. I think hes getting two warranties just in case. Really dont blame him.

They are well made but better safe than sorry when we are talking nearly $1K.
