ebay k5 for under $1000 - prodigital
Posted By: vagrant10, 10-21-2011, 12:38 PM

HO HO HO!

Pentax K-5 16.3 MP Digital SLR Camera - Black Body Only | eBay

and for me, I was offered a 5% rebate for using bill me later, so including the ebay bucks, I'll have a $70 credit on ebay next month which effectively brings the total to $930. Had to do it... been waiting months upon agonizing months for the price to drop! Woooo hooooo!

I've heard good things from prodigital, and they do include a 1 year warranty for international buyers.

Henry's, another Canadian dealer, has had the same price for a couple of weeks.

Yeah, if you order it direct you might save a few bucks based on exchange too (though more of a risk vs buying at the fixed US pricing prodigital offers).

So it has taken a full year to get the K-5 to crack the $1K barrier, and it isn't even prevalent. I'm surprised and impressed that they've managed to keep the price up, which goes against the flagship sales price trend of the past 3 models (k7, k20 and k10), all of which reached a 50% value at or very close following 1 year of sales. Speaks to the real value the K-5 still brings to the table a year later (initial sensor problems aside, which were rectified quickly and openly).

I went through Henry's and got their last one during their sale, wanted the 2 year canadian warranty from them. Good deal for those in the US or who missed it.

As long as you buy from any authorized dealer in Canada, the 2-yr Pentax warranty is included. Prodigital2000 and Henry's are both authorized dealers.

Hi Vagrant 10,
After you get your K-5 from prodigital try it out and let me know if it's a good one and how is their customer service (if you have need of it)?
