So,who is monitoring the price of K20 ...

............... waiting to bite?

Amazon has it down to $790 with a free Pentax bag.

I'm watching and waiting, just haven't decided at which point I'm going to jump in.
I'm kind of hoping I can get the K20 and the K1000 for about $1100. $1000 would be nice but I don't think that's going to happen before the holidays.

As much as I woulk like and am tempted by the K20D, I'm gonna wait for the next series of Pentax bodies.

I need to get value from my K200D and really can't justify the upgrade.

I was planning to buy if/when the holiday season rebates came around. I've been watching the price on Amazon drop a few bucks everyday. Then I caught a Prodigital2000 special for $690 shipped. Yay! But really would have preferred getting it from Amazon.

I'm totally not comfortable putting $1k+ into a camera body, so I'll be happy when the newest model comes out, but I'm not in that market.

$790's a good price. I'll probably get in around the low 700's, even though my girlfriend wants to buy a 5Dmk2 for my birthday. Call me crazy?

waiting till PMA

I'm waiting till at least PMA to see if a new dslr is announced. Assuming it is, I won't bite unless it has improved in a few specific areas. If all it does is boost the MP and give a few in camera filters i'll prolly just go for the k20

Yes, I will be buying one soon. I would buy it now, but I will be traveling soon and unable to use it. I will probably buy when I get back. I hope the price stays low!

I so want to get one but I just can't do it. I think I am having issues with the K10 but so holding out for the new K? to come out. Just hate that I have to wait 3 or four months to even know if they are having one. Than another 4 or 5 months for it to be available. Unless someone knows something I don't.
