Unfortunately, as many have mentioned, it's hard to find one in a B&M shop. Here in New England, I was able to get my hands on a sample at Hunt's Photo, but even then they only had the K5-II at the time, with no other models. If I couldn't get my hands on one, my options were to either order online and worst case scenario do a return if I really didn't like it. My alternate plan was to post here or another forum to see if I could meet up with a willing Pentaxian in a public location to try it out; Pentaxians seem to be pretty a helpful and enthusiastic group. I don't know how feasible those options would be for your niece. Hope it works out!

Road trip to NYC? You could do it in a day, or stay the night and take in a museum or
what have you.

Would be worth the trip to visit B&H or Adorama,

Ace Photo in Ashburn, VA carries Pentax.

Cameras - DSLR - Pentax - Ace Photo

Might want to call first before visiting, though, to see what's in stock.

From the US Pentax web site:

Agree that it would be best to phone first. I have not been in these shops, so have no idea which models they have available.
