i contacted antonline directly... this price of 396 or so was a 'mislink'... duh... from those missing links... so... the story is that the credit will be issued by buy.com or amazon.com whose check out i used..... i told buy.com they should be much more careful with their listings... yeah, like that'll make any difference !!!!!!!!!!
i too ordered from amazon as rory did for unbeatable sales.... sounds dubious, but worth a shot.... albeit a long shot perhaps.........

They have great ratings on Amazon if you look, and they have an independent site as well (www.shopubs.com).

Got my order place on Amazon before it went down. Hope one of these pulls through.

i just got through with buy.com...... and the KNOW of our collective displeasure with their lack of quality assurance and with antonline's inability to list an item correctly/honestly... still think it was the classic bait and switch... as opposed to their saying it was a 'mislinked item'
either it was incompetence of dishonesty... what a choice....

It was in being pre-paired to ship, but then just got an email informing me that someone informed them of there pricing mistake and canceled my order. Thanks dude :P not that I really needed a back up k-7.

With pricing mistakes I always got my order if I didn't call them and ask if the price was wrong ... go figure.

Yeah. And if you do, don't complain about them finding it was a mistake.

IMO, the K-x is the best price/performance deal going for the next few months.

pentax k-x items - Get great deals on Cameras Photo, Electronics items on eBay.com!

Pentax Pentax K-x Digital SLR (Camera Body) (Black) 16701 - B&H

Amazon.com: Pentax 16701 12.4MP K-X Digital Camera (Black; Body Only): Camera & Photo

$439

Retail, I whole-heartedly agree. However, no one will pay $700 for a Kx. Someone would for a K7. So the fact that at $440 you can get either makes your statement invalid.

I dunno....I'm of the belief that if something seems too good to be true...then it probably is....

Here's another probable price error listing, this time at a place called On Sale --

Pentax Imaging: PENTAX K-5 BODY KIT BLACK (14622)


Taking pre-orders and listing it for $811.99 -- which is the same price they have listed for the K-r body only.

Excepting, of course, ISO 12,800 on the K-5. That's too good to be true.

But someday I'll have to give in and admit it might be true. Probably the day I get my grubby hands on it ....
