If you're able to exchange the body for red somewhere: Pentax K-x 12.4 MP Digital SLR with 2.7-inch LCD and 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL and 55-300mm f/4-5.8 ED Lenses (Black): Camera & Photo

FWIW, I was at B&H and handled all the colors. The plastic on the non-black was smoother with a slight gloss and more toy-like. The black is the standard, pebbled matte and feels sturdier. I was coveting a Japanese custom color till I saw it in person. Fiero, anyone? The non-black models were cheaper, too. The prices seem to fluctuate.

Hey the price is down again. Not quite the 643 of a few weeks ago, but pretty close.

I have been buying things from Amazon for 10 years and have never had a problem. Their service has always been A1.

I have purchased camera equipment from Amazon over the 5 years, and not a single problem. That said, never a package deal, just the exact item that I wanted. Have always gone for their free shipping - which takes a bit longer, but does not add to the price.
