I would buy locally, but there aren't any local places that sell Pentax. I got my K100D from buydig.com, no problems or complaints. I've also gotten things from B&H, Adorama, and Amazon. I've never had a problem with any of them.

Wellington Photographic Supplies. That's where I got my previous Nikon as well. I try to buy locally.

I got my DL from buydig.com and bought Sigma 18-125 from sigma4less. I also acquired a few older lenses from eBay.

How was your experience with buydig.com? Fast shipping? Customer service? Would you buy from them again?

I got mine from cameta.com no problems so far, shipped via UPS, emailed tracking number...

I would have bought it from local retailer (really wanted to feel the camera first) but no one had them in stock. Even asked a salesman from Ritz to call me when the camera was in the warehouse, never got the call back...

Regards,
D

Initially, I bought the DL with 18-200mm Tamron (non DI) from buydig (on one invoice, web purchased, no follow up phone call) and then I realized I wanted the sigma and return the Tamron to them. I got the RMA# and return the item, no question asked. The refund came out quickly, too. Overall, I'm satisfied with buydig, shipping was quick. I'd buy from them again...IF... they have good deal

I got my K100D with kit lens from Abes of Maine.
I've purchased from them several cameras over the years and had no problems. They're prices are very competitive and customer service is good.
The lens deals aren't the best though. I bought a sigma telephoto at the same
time I got the camera and have been happy with it. I found out later though
I could have saved quite a bit of money if I'd got the sigma elsewhere.
They are good people. I imagine if I'd thought about it I could have haggled
with them on the sigma.
Within days of my purchase the K10D announcement came out.
The K100D was still in transit. I talked to customer service and they
told me to just ship it right back if I decided on the K10 and it would be no
problem. I got an RA number and everything.
Later, after reading more about the K10 - I decided to stick with the K100.
I've not regretted the decision. Only thing about the K10 I wish was in the K100 - the weather sealing.
