Are they as hard to find south of the 49th as they are north of it?

I had a heckuva time and jumped on the first place I found that had one. I paid $749C up here, just over $800 by the time I added shipping and tax. As luck would have it I remembered another site later on and checked it and they had them for $100 less. I emailed the vendor and told them about finding it for $100 less, they emailed back and asked for the link so I sent it to them, just waiting to hear back.

If they don't sweeten the pot a bit I might return it and pick the one up thats $100 less since I'm travelling to that city early next week anyway..

Pentax XTC,

First off, welcome to the forum. First off, I'm in the same boat as you, as I'm waiting on a new (to me) K10D to come, as well. I picked my gently used one up off of another member of this forum for a really good price. This isn't my first Pentax body, as I'm upgrading from the *ist DS, so I've already got lenses and other stuff for it.

I'm looking foward to getting it and getting to know it--I may take a day or 2 off of work to spend some time getting comfortable with it.

Shake reduction, dust sensor, and 10MP are all beautiful things.

I used a borrowed K1000 35mm for a while, but I had to return it. After using a point and shoot for the last year I've been waiting to upgrade to something I have control over. I looked at everything else and pentax just made sense. So thanks to Uncle Sam giving me my money back (Have you ever noticed "the IRS" spells theirs?) I finally order mine from B&H. Adorama is out of stock, and so are some of the local shops here in Georgia. Just glad I got mine before B&H put a backorder tag up on the site.

Now I just have to save up for the SMCP-FA 50mm f/1.4 and a good tripod.
