Pentax SLRs at costco.com

At least that's some market presence:

Costco - Pentax K20D 14.6MP 2.7" 18-55mm Lens 3.0 Frames Per Second

Costco - Pentax K200D 10.2MP 2.7" 18-55/50-200mm Lens 2.8 Frames Per Second

Hopefully that means we'll see the K-m even if these are just mail order...

Nothing but Canon and Nikon are on display in the Costco nearest my city.
I do not hold it against them though 'cause I can still get a gallon of milk there for $3 but they have been a lot less competitive on gasoline ever since last year as it started getting more than $3.
I know savings are savings but today, Costco is general only five cents per gallon cheaper than Quik Trip.
Still...

I guess it varies by state. Costco here is regularly 20 cents/gallon cheaper than the surrounding station

Wow, that was abrupt. The K200D bundle was a pretty good deal. Replaced by Olympus? Costco is like that however.

They get stuff on and off, depending on what their buyer can get a good deal on.
The K200D was the dual lens kit for $599 I believe, with a 2GB SD card sent to the buyer later.
