I bought mine at Henry's last week after they went back up to $1199. But after asking and when they saw my past purchase history they gave it to me for the $1099 prior web price. I knew that the price would go down some more :-( but zero regrets on the purchase.

Is the pricing Canadian dollars? In other words, does $999.99 Canadian = $981.25 USD? If so, that's a sweet deal since the only other charge would be for shipping.

I was the Photo show this morning, Henry's has a 15 day price match policy. Show the invoice and voila, $100 more off the price. Yet another reason to support your local store, whoever they might be.
I now have a K5 at $999 CDN, which is what I paid for a Nikon Coolpix 995 in 2002 :-)

Cheap body, expensive lens?

Has anyone notice Pentax Canada have lower their dSLR body price and at the same time rising the lens price recently?

Yes, it's in CAD but remember to add sales taxes and customs fees to the total which might end up higher than what you would pay in the US.

Great price, thank you.

I placed a phone order, but sheesh, they have got some seriously obnoxious people running the phones there (@1.800.461.7960, I'm talking about YOU, mr. Michael with no last name. Your positive customer experience training is long overdue ...).
I strongly suggest if he answers your call you hang up and re-dial
No need to frustrate yourself in such a glorious moment.

I have a feeling Prodigital2000 on evilBay would probably match it, with free shipping to the US and no tax/customs. You do lose out on the 2 year warranty, however (replaced by 1 year international warranty).
Still beats buying a used body listed at the same price around here.
