K10D best palce to buy?

Hello, I am new to the forum and am looking to get my hands on a K10D. I was looking at one on Broadway Photos site for $618 w/kit lens. Has anyone had any experience with them? The next best price I can find is on ebay $679.99 body only. If Broadway Photo is a good outfit I can but the camera there and still have enough money to get a 50mm f1.4 lense, which woud be very sweet indeed......

Sorry, Broadway is a scam. Check the reseller ratings for every vendor you consider, as suggested.

Here are some places that often have competitive prices and are not scams. Better yet, don't trust ME, look them up yourself:

Adorama (out of K10Ds)
B&H (out of K10Ds)
Beach Camera (out of K10Ds)
Penn Camera (has the K10D body for $599, lowest I can find right now)
Abe's of Maine (has the K10D body + lens + 1gb card for $720 shipped)

etc.

Hi Madisonphotogrl, the price from Penn Camera was over $100 less than amazon, so I'm happy about that, plus the savings allowed me to get a pretty sweet lense as well......

There must be some good camera shops in Mad Town, how do their prices compare with the online folks?

My K10D & 50mm f1.4 arrived Thursday, what a sweet machine. I'm having a blast with it right out of the box. I can only imagine the piacutes I will be able to take once I learn all it's capabilities. I alos bought a 77mm f1.8 limited (silver), and can't wait to try that baby out too.
So I am now a proud owner of a K10D......cool.....

The Penn website has only 2 Pentax listed, K20 and K200. Abe's has a good selection but a terrible website. Adorama has the best website for being user friendly and easily searched. Anyway, Abe's lists the K10D with 18-55 lens for $750 and the K200D with 18-55 for $720. Makes tough choices/decisions even tougher.
