K20D price??

Amazon.com: Pentax K20D 14.6MP Digital SLR Camera with Shake Reduction (Body Only): Electronics


Is this a fluke or a black market camera? I see it comes form Adorama, which I am not too sure about. Sounds too good to be true!

PS: (UPDATE) for anyone coming into this thread late, the price on the above link this morning was $239.00 US.......then it got changed to the correct price a couple hours after posting this.

Must be a typo

Adorama is okay. While I'm thinking "typo," I went ahead and ordered one, just to make sure!

What is the return policy there? If I order and they change the price can I cancel the order.

I ordered one as well.

Unfortunately the posting will cause a "run" on the K20D @ Adorama and they will probably not honor the price....but styranger things have happened.

I almost bought 2, but didnt want to be really greedy.

I fully expect to be cancelled ... I think they typed *2* 39 instead of *7*39.

But who knows? One can hope!

I ordered one just in case.

They can't legally charge you more than you agreed to pay, but they can legally cancel the order for whatever reason they want, which is what they will most certainly do...

Let's keep this to ourselves, the fewer people that order the better chance we have of slipping though the cracks...haha.

Adorama, which has a great site and I've ordered many things from them, currently sells the K20D for 744 with no lens. So, yeah, I think someone at Amazon messed up.

The price is more like $744 on Adorama's site, so this does look like a serious mistake.

I ordered mine too!!! Haven't told my wife though, but it should be pretty easy to explain if Adorama or Amazon don't cancel the deal.
