Jeff, I just yesterday purchased mine from Beach Camera, which came with an 4GB card, carrying case, and the kicker for me - an 2yr extention on the original warranty. Beach Camera is also an authorized dealer of Pentax.

Also got mine from Beach - ordered it Dec 31st late at night, arrived here Tuesday, 4 business days later.

No legitimate seller has them for under $720-740 at this point. Anyone under $700 is likely a bad outfit, like FotoConnection (aka TVsDepot,, ephotoclub,, Inoax.Com, TheNewConnection)

Just look at the horror stories at

prodigital has had some auctions on ebay where the camera shipped was coming out to about 620 on average over the last couple weeks. I know some members here have bought from them without incident, but I think I remember one person who said their customer service sucked, but did not say why. anyway, last week I bought from them, but I haven't received the products yet so I can't yet say what my opinion is.

anyway, if you want to check out one of their auctions for a k20d body only, here's one link (they have at least 3 up for auction right now): NEW PENTAX K20D 14.6MP DIGITAL SLR BODY NEW IN BOX - eBay (item 130280486838 end time Jan-10-09 17:32:33 PST) I should also mention that they are a canadian outfit, so how this impacts our warranty coverage, I cannot say. nor do I know if they are a pentax authorized dealer, so ymmv.

I had wanted to go the prodigital route, but I just couldn't handle the wait on the shipping. I have purchased from prodigital twice, and they have been nothing but stellar for me each time.

I bought my 77mm FA from prodigital. The list claims that there's 7 year mack extended warranty. The lens arrived quickly. However, one and half month passed after numerous communications, I still haven't received my invoice (not even a scanned copy!) nor the mack warranty card.

terminator: I did the same and it came with it (Mack was also ok w/ registering it a little after the 30 day period because it came about 45 days after). Are you sure it wasn't in your box? It's just a small sheet of paper with plastic wrap over it...

Of course, I double checked the box, no where could I find the invoice or the warranty card... I know what a Mack warranty card look like. A big disappointment. I hate to leave negative feedback, but it seems that I have no other choice...
