K20D Kit at Sam's Club...

I don't know if others have seen this... Sam's Club (and Wal Mart) are now selling the whole series of Pantax. I think this is a new thing. ???.

The K20D Kit with DA 18-55 II kit lens, battery grip, and bag. $889.00. Not too bad for a 100% legit USA retail purchase.

Interesting. In the K1000 hey days, K-Mart and Sears were major dealers of Pentax.

Yeah, Ned Bunnell (Pentax US President) posted something about this earlier this year. Walmart has created a "Pentax brand store" online at I'm not sure if they will also be carried in the stores.

Anyway, I think it's a good move as it gets Pentax out in front of the everyday shopper, and can help build more name recognition.

I just got my K20 with the kit ALII for 700 flat from amazon warehouse deals... I was pretty worried about it but when it came sealed with all the factory info and not a single scratch or scuff that was supposedly on it, I was more than satisfied. It also works fine too to boot! The only catch is no warranty, but after having several pentax slr's and no problems i'll take my chances.

my two cents,
