K-x deals

I was on the fence about the K-x when the Amazon two lens kit was available and waited too long to pull the trigger. Do you think we'll see any deals like that again in the near future?

Thanks for any feedback.

If there are any more deals, I suspect it won't be for a while.
Who knows though, you might get lucky.

Presidents Day is coming up. If there's going to be any good pricing, it will be then. So in two and a half weeks there might be good deals again.

I would speculate that Amazon had the K-x deal (I got one ) because the shipping date was so far out (1 - 2 months) that they knew they would lose all those buyers unless they gave a good reason to wait. I guess it's better to make less money on a sale than no money at all. And I got a bag and batteries from them as well...they know that the purchase of a big-ticket item drives the purchase of smaller items with better margins.

Darn

I'm finding a few sites with the white, or blue body with the kit 18-55mm lens for $544, but it would be nice to get the extra lens for $100. I'll hold on and see what comes up. Thanks for the replies.

Kx Pricing

Again Canada pricing (note: incl 2 yr Pentax warranty). Pro Digital 2000( as found on e-bay). one lens: NEW RED PENTAX K-x 12MP DSLR CAMERA w/18-55 LENS KIT on eBay.ca (item 310197116864 end time 26-Feb-10 10:36:47 EST)
or 2 lens: NEW! PENTAX K-x DSLR w/18-55mm & 55-300mm 2 LENS KIT on eBay.ca (item 310197156892 end time 26-Feb-10 14:05:36 EST)

Prices seem to fluctuate with currency differences. Obviously they do most of their business in the U.S.A. Sorry, seems that it is a one year International warranty, not the Canadian 2 yr .

I just checked and I see for $653:
Pentax K-x
18-55mm
55-300mm

I just want to make sure I'm not missing something. That is an awesome deal but it is not $50 more than the body alone. Am I missing out on an even better deal somewhere?

Thanks
Sam

I don't think so. I've been looking for deals on the K-x with lens kit for weeks. I missed the first sale Amazon had on the kit with 55-300. Finally decided to order the kit with 50-200 Saturday morning since I have a budget and it still fell within that. Of course, saw this thread first thing this morning. LOL. So I just cancelled that order and ordered up that kit for $653 from Amazon.
