It's listed for $1,309 at Amazon, although it is through an Amazon vendor. Amazon proper has it for $1,339 too.

Not sure if we'll have to wait until the K-3 is out, or at least annonced, before the K-5 drops below the $1,000 barrier. Regardless, it's at least moving in the right direction for those waiting to jump aboard the K-5 ship

This is great news. After looking at some recent low-light shots with the K20d, I found myself longing for the ability to use a higher ISO. So the K-5 itch is back, but I'm still waiting for a price that says "buy me". I don't know what it is, but I'll know it when I see it.

Shortly after I joined PentaxForums and began to check in regularly, on 2011Jun29 there was a B&H ad, in the side banner of the PF Home page, listing the K-5 on sale at $1299 for just a few days. I have had the K-5 itch for some time now and that must have been the number that I needed to see. So I went to their site and purchased it and when I checked out they ended up selling it to me for $1279 with free shipping.
I guess sometimes it pays to keep an eye on those side banner ads, and there does seem to be, albeit slow, downward movement on the K-5 price.
