K-X body $550 at Newegg with free sling bag

Just got an email from Newegg with a promotion code : DSLR10B for 10% off any DSLR.
They only have the K-x body only in stock. It's even more tempting at only $550!

thanks for the tip!

the k-x body w/ 18-55 at $609 seems like a better deal. OOS though.

The coupon is only good until 11/16 and has a max $50 value. The kit lense is definately worth the extra $10, but who knows if it will be in stock before the coupon expires.

With the $50 coupon, possible $11.00 Bing Cashback, and $39.00 sling bag, you're getting the body for $500.00!

They seem to have plenty of K-7s. With kit lens & coupon the deal is still a little higher than 2 weeks ago. What gives? I'm guessing the weak dollar is squeezing prices upwards for imports. I blame Bush & Iraq

Uh, sorry...the weakening dollar right at the moment is due to Bernanke, Obama, Pelosi and Reid spending money we don't have. [End of political diatribe.]

That said, the Japanese companies have their own problems--the yen is at 93 to the dollar today--making it difficult for them to make nice things like DSLRs affordable in the USA.

Nope. The weak and unstable $ was set in motion years ago under Bush and Iraq. As long as they're in Iraq and Afgan now the pressure will continue on weakening $.

Still, musn't grumble. I thank my lucky stars I'm not living in the UK and looking at 1200 quid for a K-7 & then there's petrol....

Sling bag

Some people call it a sling bag...I call it a Kaiser bag.

Or was it Packard?
