K20D price

Hi Pentaxians,

I have been following K20D auction at Prodigital for last few days. Seems like it is selling for $630 ish + $30 shippinng. The shipping cost is a killer.

It is still cheaper than most other reputed store prices.

Would greatly appreciate if you share your K20D purchase experience/price from Prodigital or another store. One of my good friends is buying one. To tell you the truth, I am resisting my CBA urge. :ugh: God help me please.

Nailed mine for $620 + shipping for what it's worth

The waiting is the hardest part...

I've been looking today and almost had one for $640, got outbid with 30 secs left and it sold for $642

It seems to be a good deal even when converted to CAD and GST added for us Canadians.

Keep at it; I've found the auctions that end around 5/6 pm are the quietest during the week.

I know I should have bought local in B.C. but I figured I'm still supporting a Canadian business.

Good luck!

Shipping cost is irrelevant. the only thing that matters is the total paid. I just checked B & H. They have FREE SHIPPING. Oops, camera body is $749.95. They do have a two year Extended Warranty included at that price. Is a two year extended warranty worth $90.00?
Beats me.

Call in tomorrw, and ask for Meyer.
Tell him some folks from Pentaxforums recommended you call him to see if he could still give you the $699 price.

Hey - worst thing he can do, is say no, right?

Just won an auction a few hours ago, paid $640 (total of $849 CAD with tax and shipping), bit of an impulse buy but I am sure I won't be disappointed! For me it was worth it because of it being a Canadian company, I don't have to worry about duty and other taxes. Any other Canadian company I have been looking at the body is selling for nearly $1000 CAD before taxes.

Plus the fact that if they are an authorized Pentax dealer in Canada, they provide a standard 2 year warranty there!

Very cool! The race is on to see who gets theirs first! My payment was made on Thursday with confirmation on Friday morning but haven't seen a shipped notice yet.

Funny how a whole handful of Vancouverites just scored new K20Ds!

Amazon / Adorama

It is $704.50 from Amazon / Adorama right now. Also there is $30 rebate from an Amazon Visa creditcard. Sweet deal

I just won an ebay auction yesterday for K20D for 590 US+30 US shipping from a canadian auctioneer 'prodigital2000'. Are they authentic? does anyone know?

Does anybody have an idea on third party batteries and chargers for k20d?

Cheers.

Uh oh...you're soooo screwed!

Nah, just kidding! Prodigital is what a lot of people around here have used. You should be fine.

There's a Minolta battery that works and you can sometimes find it for under $20. Can't remember the number on it right now, though. Check Adorama, B&H or Prodigital and see what they have to offer.
