K20D kit for Canadians: futureshop.ca $899 CDN 'til noon Monday

Hey Canadians,
Hope it's okay to post stuff like this, but Futureshop has 10% off DSLR's at the moment--online only this weekend until noon Monday. I noticed they have the K20D kit for $999 regular (and that's already good--that's even good for body only in Canada) and when you add it to your cart it goes down to $899. It's in-store pickup only for this item, so the store near you has to have one. The three closest to me show them in stock.
Future Shop: Cameras & Camcorders: Digital SLR: Pentax K20D 14.6MP DSLR Camera With 18-55mm AL II Lens Kit - Select Stores Only

Anyway, if anybody was thinking of getting a new one, this is a pretty good deal -- yes, all prices in Canadian dollars!

I find that half the time, when Future Shop announce good deals like this (on items that already have a honest price, not like the 1300$ they asked for the K20D a month ago) they are old out. Their online store is intersting to look for prices, but not to purchase anything.

You can still choose in-store pickup--I just tried it, and it gives a little check mark that it's available. I checked the Toronto Keele & St. Clair and Queensway stores and they're showing stock. (edit--Yonge and Dundas is showing "sold out")

I've got other plans, so I haven't gone "all the way" though

Is it me or they are listing far fewer Pentax products that once there has been? The K20D is no longer listed, and they barely list a few lenses and the K200D (not even the K2000/K-m)

Something going on?

Yeah, but it's just that i'm wondering if Pentax is gonna be out of one of the major retailer in Canada. It's not so much for the price than for the brand visibility.

I just checked now and they don't even list the K20D at all.

However, they have the K200D priced almost the same for body only or with a kit lens.

Buy the one with the lens and it is 2 cents less than a body-only deal;weird.
