With the Australian dollar tanking (it is now under US$0.70, compared to US$0.98 a couple of months ago), I doubt us Aussies will see any downward movement.

You forgot to mention that Amazon are also offering a free Pentax Sling Bag so that's another $60 off the price.

$46, technically. But you can also get a Lowepro Camera Strap free too worth almost 18.

You're right, I was going by the Pentax price and I missed the strap.

This is looking good for the K2000 price point. The lower the K20 goes, the lower the K2000 should be. Unless Pentax are trying to run down their stock of K20's prior to announcing the hinted at improvements.

Wow, yeah. Looks like the Amazon price shot up, but the other sellers still have lower prices (Cameta, etc)

Body + Kit lens went down by 15 bucks since I bought it. I wrote Amazon to kindly return me the difference (never hurts to ask I guess) and they said even though they don't have a post-purchase guarantee anymore they'd make an exception. I guess they considered a 10 year customer vs 20 bucks or so is no big deal. I don't even have the package yet, to boot.

Kudos to them for 'doing the right thing' even though their policy dictates otherwise.

That policy had been in place since the beginning of Amazon. They dropped it effective Sept 1.

Right, and as I stated they decided to uphold a no longer valid policy. Kudos for that.

Why are you guys checking on pricey Amazon? Prodigital has sold a number of K20Ds (body only) for under $700 in the past week. And yes, they're legit. Here is one for $610 + shipping. Crazy!
