best price and place to purchase a k30 body

Would ordering from amazon be taking a chance and is this a decent price or would you go with the more reputable sites ie beach, bh, adorama which have prices that are higher right now... Pentax K-30 Weather-Sealed 16 MP CMOS Digital SLR (Black, Body Only): Electronics

I got mine from Electronics Basket, a reseller through Amazon. It worked out well. Just make sure you read the description carefully and know what you are getting. Sometime people expect WR lenses but get regular ones instead. Read the description carefully and there is no mention of WR.

Some of Amazon's resellers have pretty poor ratings, some are excellent. I bought mine through Amazon (Emmy Photo) and had a great experience, great price. Just get one "fulfilled by Amazon" so Amazon can take the heat if something is wrong.

Amazon does a good job of enforcing the rules even if it isn't "fulfilled by". I complained when a seller was giving me a hard time and they essentially told the seller to contact me and arrange for the return immediately. Things went very smoothly after that.

You need to look at the Marketplace forum. This is from there:

Cheaper than what you are looking at, AND with a WR lens.

It shows in stock.

Ah yes you are totally right, it's under Marketplace but the actual forum is PriceWatch.
