Low K5 kit price, $1573
Posted By: oddshot, 11-11-2010, 01:02 PM

Now I am all about the K5 again as I have found out that the rattle within is a normal sound made by the image stabilization mechanism... So now, I am sharing where I purchased my K5 with 18-55 wr lens, so that others interested in the K5 can have yet another option of where to buy.

I think I got a great price considering it was just released: $1573.00 (plus $15 shipping).

I got it from and at first was a little curious as to why it was so much cheaper than the rest, but I checked them out to my satisfaction and found them to be, in my one purchase, a good source with fast shipping and responsive customer service.

However, I just checked and right now they appear not have any K5's in stock ( but they do have the Kr's for anyone interested, and although I have not been shopping for those, it may be a good price.)

Also, check I believe they are selling the kit for $1616.00 but I do not have any experience purchasing from them, Good Luck

Might want to check resellerratings about Comp-u-plus. Their track record is uneven but seems OK quite recently.

Agreed. With the cheaper than the rest, caution is a must... however, I am happy with my single purchase from Comp-u-plus and would buy from them again, but it seems their prices for accessories are not as good as the camera prices.

I did call them before purchasing to confirm availability (at the time there was 2 left, I got one of them) and price and they followed up with a couple emails and then after purchasing they had a decent interface for tracking.

Anyway, my 2 cents.
