[SOLD] FS: Pentax K100D w/ DA 18-55 Kit Lens

Purchased on March 27, 2007 at Future Shop in Montreal. Comes with a 3 year product service plan (4 years of coverage total), all original boxes with UPC's still attached and warranty cards in tact (nothing filled out). Camera has about 5k clicks on it and has been babied, the 18-55 has a tiny cosmetic blemish on the filter ring but aside from that everything is in new condition.

Asking for $500 US including shipping within Canada and the US ( I will pay for the Xpresspost shipping 3-5 days but any duties or taxes will be your responsibility). Preferred payment would be by money order, would also be willing to trade for a K10D and pay the difference if someone is interested.

Original receipt will be included so new owner can use the 3 year product service plan through Future Shop. I will try to post up pictures if I get the chance, need to borrow a camera to do so.

Cheers,

Shawn

This might be a good deal for Canadians (not sure on the pricing there) but this is available with no taxes and shipping included to US residents for under $400 after rebate now.

Yeah I wondered about that, up here the K100D with 18-55 kit lens sells for about $589 - $629 CDN. I searched around B&H and found the kit to be $549 US with Rebate it looked to be around $499 US (Summer rebate on the K100D but no rebate on the 18-55 or kit by the looks from the site). Without the 18-55 attached the K100D drops right down to I think $349 US nowadays after rebate

that's something i just can't rationalize. difference in retail cost. i see many things listed in the UK with a price in pounds that's the same here in dollars. even tho there's a 2:1 evaluation.

It really is bad, the problem here is that Canadian retailers still aren't adjusting prices based on the dollar or taking into account the variance in rebates. Future Shop here still sells the K100D + 18-55 for $599.99! When I was over in Europe it was even more ridiculous, the market there is so much more expensive than here even if you don't factor in the 2.5:1 dollar ratio.

Unfortunately this is a supply and demand market and since I am moving over to Canon equipment I may have to eat 200 or 300 dollars just to make the sale. Such is the world of technology If I don't sell it locally or get a return exchange at future shop, expect to see a significant price drop to sell to the US consumers
