Just ordered from Tri-State at $1,410. Amazon took it out of my cart at the $1,426.57 price since last night. Seems like we're in another temporary back order situation. And that's good news in the long run.

ANTonline is showing $1,155,000.00. In my cart.

Sounds too good to be true - makes my K-7 worth at least a cool half-million. Any offers ???

Edit and explanation: I'd rather buy from B&H or Adorama, or better yet my local shop. My local shop said they wouldn't stock the model (do have K-r and K-7) but promised a K-5 quote by end of day Friday. Didn't happen. I think this is the third time they couldn't be bothered even to leave a message saying that they were having trouble and would get back later. The inquiries seem to fall in the Black Hole of Retailer Disinterest if it's not a "popular" item/vendor.

The two Forum sponsors are asking about list today. I hesitated but needed to order and wasn't quite ready to spend another nearly $200. I'd rather donate some smaller amount directly to the Forum. Still feel a bit bad, though.

No ship date from TriState yet and my local shop made me a good offer. TriState cancelled without a whimper and I appreciate it.

ANTOnline is still holding the line at $1.155 million on Amazon. I guess even one sale at that price would make all this effort worth it.

Yup, saw that today too. Very tempting again, but I think this time I'm going to wait until these sensor stain issues are resolved.

Camera King is showing 1355 with the 18-55 WR. I would LOVE to see 1250 and I am pulling the trigger

Wow, a bit of research shows that I would NOT buy from this outfit. Guess I will pay a bit more or wait a bit longer
