Also at Adorma the price jumped from less then $700 to $900?

The previous prices were a holiday special. Pentax and their distributors gave dealers a special price. Map was $999.95 w/lens. Now the price has risen and the new map is $1079.95. Didn't expect to see electronis prices going up with the economy the way it is. Sorry.
thanks

Adorama is showing $849 for the body only. It was $742 a couple days ago, and was over $900 a week or two ago.

BH is out of stock on the body only but has the 16-45 and 18-55 kits in stock (at a lower price than Adorama). Who knows why...

Interesting to see Adorama jump like that. For a while, they were beating B&H at the Pentax price game - the K20D over the holidays as noted, but also back in October when I got my AF360 flash, they beat B&H by $40. I consider myself a B&H guy, but when I can save that much (and not have to transfer subways . . .), I can't pass that up.

Bought a BG-2 Grip for a K20D from Tri-State via their eBay store last November... delivered in two days to Michigan. I was new as advertised. I'm very pleased.

Cheers...

RedPigeons:

I live in New York City too, and am currently looking at selling some of my equipment as I need money due to job situation. I have a K20D and also a 31mm which I love but am willing to sell. You can see a picture taken with the lens at pentaxphotogallery.com under artist name Martin Brand (the one called "how"). I can send you many more taken with the lens which is my favourite.

I would be willing to sell both the lens and the body combined for $1300 if that appeals to you? They are both in great shape. Let me know if you are interested. I live in the West Village andn could meet up Sunday.

PS your quote about learning photography is very humble. the pictures in your flickr stream are very good.
