K20D on BuyDig

Pentax K20D 14.6MP Digital SLR Body (lens not included) | BuyDig.com, The Internet's Digital Superstore

It is currently offered for $700 new, and shipped.
I am so tempted.

This will be my first Pentax.
Would you pull the trigger or wait a bit for PMA?

PMA is next week, so if I were you, I'd wait until at least then to see what Pentax has up their sleeve. Assuming that they announce a successor to the K20, the prices on the K20 will start to drop shortly after that, due to the fact that stores want to clear their shelves to make room for the new body(ies) that will be arriving soon.

If you can't wait, though, $700 for a K20 is a very good deal.

just get it if you need it for now. Stay one generation behind and you'll save alot of money. Usually dslr will sell at full retail price when first release(K20D $1199). The K20D is an excellent camera already even for a professionals.

Make sure you buy from a reputable seller, I was always nervous about buying from buydig so I never did.

BuyDig seems to be alright.
BuyDig.Com - buydig.com - Reviews, Ratings and Prices at ResellerRatings

Thanks for the advice. I will wait.

I bought my *ist DL from buydig in 2006 and had no issues at all. I would buy from them again in a heartbeat.

I spent about $4,500 with Buydig, mainly for consumer electronic items (TV, DVD player, ...). I was concerned at first but have had no problems so far.

I'd buy from them again.

Buydig is the sister company to Beach Camera, which is a very good company to deal with. I bought my K100D from buydig, and my K20D from Beach camera, and have had no problems with either place.
