I hate NY store because I'd have to pay sales tax. I could save $110 by waiting for Buydig.com or Abe's of Maine to stock them.

Yeah, I'm waiting for Amazon because they don't charge tax here in CA (local sales tax is up to 9.75% now) and I get 3% back in Amazon spending bucks on purchases through them, which would be $39 on a $1,300 camera.

Still trying to decide if I can wait for a price drop or not... Doesn't Pentax usually do some sort of rebate/discount after they release new cameras?

It seems that way. That's probably when I'll jump on it. I'll need at least one body pretty quickly to replace one of my K20D's. I'll replace the other one when the price drops below $1000.

I am very excited that it's out. I am a very happy K20 owner (two actually) so I will be waiting until the price drops by quite a bit. I'm not in a hurry. Looking forward to getting one eventually, though.

I'll be happy once the price drops down to about $999.99, or if I can get a mail in rebate for a discount on buying a lens or flash (I have the 360 but wouldn't mind upgrading to the 540) at the same time.

I'm really interested in getting the DA* 50-135, so if there was some kind of discount for buying the K7 + a DA* series lens I'd be in heaven.
